Hi, Fiona, I found a suburb review for Loch Sport. This is what one user said:
"very nice area surrounced by the water and national park. you can even sit and listen to the kookaburras from you backyard! great for the kids, they can ride their bikes all over town. there is play equipment as well. i love it"
Not a good place to live. Lots of backstabbing and small town syndrome stuff. Lack of facilities and a long drive to Sale to do shopping. The town has nothing really - no nightlife, socially isolated. Stay away from committees - they will knife you in the back after using you. Good for kids? There's nothing for kids to do. Some here have become excellent vandals and thieves. Locals friendly? Pffff. To your face - yeah.
I live in Loch Sport moved from suburbs of Melbourne 5yrs ago with 3kids. I have found it a great place to live we go fishing and boating most of the time we can walk to shops has a skate park and is safe for kids to ride around the roads. I have found that it all depends on the kids if they love out doors it great but if they love to spend money and do stuff that's not recreational it's so good only for a holiday for those types. My kids now know how to yacht, drive a boat,fish, ski and wakeboard and are always outside doing some thing not sitting in side playing play station which I live the most as that's what my eldest did most of the time when we live in the suburbs. So yeah I love it..
I lived there in 2014-2015,it's pretty and peaceful. Not a lot to do tho,you have to make your own fun and although most people are friendly there, it's hard to fit in unless you know someone who lives there. They have the RSL tho it has limited opening hours and not much happens there. The Local small supermarket is expensive and limited. It's a great place for retirees though. I enjoyed my time there but truthfully I needed more so moved away where there was a little more hustle and bustle. Loch sport has been nick named "god waiting room" so that might give you some sort of indication. Good luck :-)
Ask Google home Nest!!
I remember going as a kid, haven't been for a long time. Lot's of mosquitoes. Everyone who has a beach house down there has a veranda that they sit under, a porch, but it's all covered by mesh and wire so you don't get attacked by the mosquitoes. Oh, it was like "why do we come here? We always go home absolutely covered in mosquito bites!"
