Grantville
Grantville is on the Bass Highway near Phillip Island on the shores of Western Port Bay.  There is a park with childrens play equipment and BBQ off the Highway, or turn down Pier Road to find another BBQ down on the grass by the water.  There is a jetty frequented by fishing folk and a ramp from which to launch small craft at high tide.  Enjoy the view out to French Island, especially at sunset time or fishing from the jetty at high tide.

 Grantville has a foreshore Caravan Park, Bed and Breakfast Accomodation and a range of eateries and shops including a bakery, cafes and restaurants.  There is a post office and newsagency, service station and other shops.  The local Koala and Animal Park offers a wide range of activities for the whole family including hand feeding and patting koalas and kangaroos. other animals and playing mini-golf.  There are also several wineries in the area with open cellar doors to visitors.

Take the Grantville-Glen Alvie Road as an alternative route to Wonthaggi for a spectacular scenic tour of rolling hills and rural charm.  The lookout at the 'Shunt Off' is an ideal spot for a picnic and offers panoramic views across Westernport Bay.

 The Gurdies Flora and Fauna Reserve offers a wide variety of walks through bushlands with 54 species of native orchids.  Nearby to the south the towns of Corinella with a jetty and Coronet Bay with a swimming beach, are both ideal for walks and fishing.  Visit the Bass Hotel to enjoy a cool drink after a day out at the beach.

Near Grantville is the Woolamai Racecourse, a great place for a family outing to a classic country race meeting.  Visit the Bass Coast Shire Council website for race dates and times of the shuttle bus service that operates.
