Reviews of Loch Sport, VIC

22nd July 2020

"Best Place EVER!!!"

My husband's family have been going to loch sport for over 40 year's. I been going there for 16 year's and all three of our children have hadANY great holidays at loch sport. Yer there's sand flies, mosquitoes ECT but there's spray for that 😀. Kid's play outside all day, it's so peaceful and relaxing at loch sport. We have always found the community nice and they welcome everyone. We love it down there and we are very lucky to have a house there, that we can get away from the city life. I would love to move down there 😀
Love LOCH SPORT

"Perfect for a get away :)"

We are in our late 20's and have a little holiday house in Loch Sport, we absolutely love it. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and it is lovely to have the wildlife visiting our backyard. Highly recommend it as a place to relax, unwind and take the boat out.

"Lovely town to escape from the city"

We love going to loch sport. Its clean, laid back and very relaxing. Just how we like it! The holiday period attracts more people but everyone is friendly and its easy to drive around town. Plenty of activities to choose from and there are no traffic lights or chain coffee shops to remind you of work! Just the beach, lakes and serenity :)

Rentals in Loch Sport

"Unwelcoming community, unsupportive council, couldn’t leave soon enough."

Spent several years in Loch Sport before moving elsewhere, it’s a horrible town where the people will harass you until you do what they want and will gossip about you, even if you just keep to yourself, which is forbidden in Loch Sport, the less you speak to people the more they will harass you because you’re "weird" if you aren’t gossiping. People may seem friendly at first, but they aren’t, unless you’re a baby boomer. Council doesn’t support the town except in the tourist areas because the rowdy tourists are all they care about. Locals call the tourists "terrorists" despite tourism being the only thing to keep Loch Sport afloat. The locals are fine if you’re an aged pensioner, but are extremely rude to anyone under 60. It’s even impossible to collect your mail if you’re young because the post office employees will be too busy gossiping to find your mail, you’ll need to get someone over 60 to collect all your mail for you or get a P.O. Box in Sale. The local restaurants are very pricey considering the standard of food, the local supermarket isnt worth purchasing from, better off driving the 65km to Sale. Place is overrun with mosquitoes and sand flies, which the council doesn’t bother to spray until way too late, so if you live here you will contract Ross River Fever. The tourist season results in garbage and roadkill everywhere, which doesn’t get cleaned up for weeks or months. It’s known as God’s waiting room, which is accurate, but if only he’d hurry up and see them so they’d leave the town and maybe it could develop instead of remaining the small inbred town it is.

"Off the beaten track, but a bit of a bogan & mossie-pit"

Tranquil location, away from the main busy centres. But still gets quite crowded in peak season. Also can fill up with a large number of drunk bogans and general yobbos. The reputation of being a bit of a mossie-pit is well-deserved. There must be some kind of record for this place having the biggest and most numerous mossies in Australia! If you take the aeroguard, you might just avagoodweekend.

"Small town syndrome, mozzies & nothing going for it."

A beautiful place with nothing going for it. Mozzies, flies and drunks. Sums it up. And the worst case I've ever seen of small town syndrome with people living in each others pockets and backstabbing at every available moment.

Great for

  • Nature
  • Lakes

Not great for

  • Too far from town
  • Lack of facilities, shopping, civilization
  • Mozzies, flies, everything else that bites and stings
