Discovery Coast

The Discovery Coast begins at Discovery Bay and the city of Portland and ends at Nelson, just before the South Australian border. Much of the coastline is included in the Discovery Bay Coastal Park and Cape Bridgewater. Just inland from the coastal area features the wilderness and natural beauty of the Lower Glenelg and Cobboboonee National Parks. This stretch of coastline includes some of Victoria’s oldest settlements.
