Toora is a small historic town with a population of about 500. It is nestled between the Strzelecki foothills and Corner Inlet Marine and Coastal Reserve and overlooks the internationally famous Wilsons Promontory National Park. The drive from Melbourne is approx. two hours, and passes through the beautiful South Gippsland countryside. Toora is located on Corner Inlet which is a designated Ramsar wetland site of international significance, renowned for the huge variety of migratory birds which nest in the area. A must for all nature lovers is the bird hide just south of Toora. Take the Toora Heritage Walk by following the trail markers for historic buildings, see the community arts projects in the street with painted poles and banners.
