Sawtell Inlet (Tooradin),Westernport Bay

On Sunday September 12, 2010, I visited the coastal fishing village of Tooradin, on Sawtell Inlet, Westernport Bay, 70 km south of Melbourne.

I explored the interesting lake on the north side of the main highway, then went out to the boat launching ramp and the Lookout Platform.

Good views across the mangroves to the Inlet and the Bay.

The largest pelican in the world is on display on the foreshore!

There is a Commemorative Plaque on the Lake Walking Trail, marking the site of the Tooradin Coach Route which passed through here in the 1800s.

Next to the Lake there is an excellent fish and chips shop, which has been there for at least 50 years! Nearby is the Old Books Store, offering thousands of titles not over $5!
