Port Albert is a picturesque coastal town in Victoria, Australia.​

Steeped in a rich maritime history, it was Gippsland’s first established port and was the cornerstone of the land transport connections in the early 1800’s. 

Located within the Corner Inlet region, it is renowned as a recreational and commercial fishing spot. 

Port Albert’s picturesque and peaceful location attracts visitors from around Australia and overseas.

Photographers, artists, anglers, historians, walkers, foodies, and anyone with an interest in maritime history will relish what Port Albert has to offer. 

Its close proximity to Tarra Bulga National Park, Wilsons Promontory & the famous 90 Mile Beach makes it a ‘must stop’ destination for those traveling the East Coast.​

Travelers can find an array of accommodation in the area, made up of Airbnb, Motels, and overnight RV facilities which make Port Albert a convenient overnight stop-over point for holiday makers.​

Visit the Port Albert Maritime Museum, follow the walking and bike trails, or enjoy fishing off the jetty, the famous fish & chips, bird watching, and take photographs of the colourful Buoys located around the scenic wharf.

Discovered by Angus McMillan in 1841, from the mid 1800s Port Albert was the supply port for GippsIands pioneers until the completion of the Melbourne-Sale railway in 1878. It was Victorias first established port and its long timber jetty frequently berthed ships from Europe and America, as well as welcoming thousands of Chinese on their way to the GippsIand goldfields. The quaint fishing village is off the beaten track and, consequently, more than 40 buildings in a Georgian and Victorian architectural style still exist, including what is believed to be the first licensed hotel in Victoria (1842). Still a commercial fishing port, Port Alberts reputation for recreational fishing and its waters protected by 30 small islands sees its population swell considerably during summer. Relive its early significance at the museum, which records the turbulence of shipwrecks and coastal fishing.
