About the Waterway
Shallow Inlet is located on the south coast of Victoria, just west of Wilsons Promontory, approximately 180kms (165 minutes travel time) by road from the Melbourne CBD, accessed via the small South Gippsland town of Sandy Point.
Shallow Inlet is a small tidal waterway located on the eastern side of Waratah Bay. Although much of the inlet dries at low water, and the depth in the entrance varies, it is suitable for small recreational and fishing vessels.
