The Bunurong Marine Park stretches along the South Gippsland coast for about 17 km, from Coal Point (east of Cape Patterson) in the west, to Wreck Creek (near Inverloch) and extends one kilometer out to sea. Being about 140 km southeast of Melbourne makes it an easy day trip and especially popular with tourists. You can access the park from the Inverloch-Cape Paterson Road and stop at any number of carparks to see different scenery at each spot.
