Bass Coast is part of the Gippsland region in southeastern Victoria, Australia. It includes Phillip Island and the region of the mainland through which the Bass Highway passes. It has a long coastline on Western Port Bay and the open seas of Bass Strait. Its landward side is enclosed by South Gippsland.
The Bass Highway turns off the South Gippsland Highway and runs down the eastern side of Western Port Bay, past the turn-off to San Remo and Phillip Island, then runs along the Bass Strait coast to Inverloch before turning inland to rejoin the South Gippsland Highway at Leongatha.
The region’s attractions include its coastline and beaches, the coal mining history of Wonthaggi and the wildlife attractions of Phillip Island.
If coming from the direction of Melbourne, turn off the South Gippsland Highway onto Bass Highway a short way past Lang Lang. There are several other roads into the area from the South Gippsland Highway and the road to Wilsons Promontory.
V/Line  from Melbourne to Inverloch daily.
