There is a charm and quiet ambience about Port Albert. Situated at the southern end of the Ninety Mile Beach, Port Albert is a picturesque seaside fishing village and is one of the few remaining fishing villages still in operation along the Victorian coastline. It was originally the gateway to eastern Victoria.
Port Albert was one of Victoria’s first European settlements. Settled in 1841. Ships arrived directly bringing new settlers from oversea and thousands of tons of cargo for distribution through out the new Gippsland Region.
Port Albert is steeped in rich maritime history, the former Bank of Victoria building houses the Gippsland Regional Maritime Museum showcasing culture interests, treasures, artefacts and marine wildlife and coastal park information. Opened daily September - May. Weekends and school holidays June-August or by appointment. 03 5183 2520.
