Marlo is a small holiday fishing village located less than 400 km east of Melbourne. In the mid 1800s Marlo was an important port used by paddle steamers, ketches and schooners to access the lower reaches of the Snowy River.
Marlo is such a tranquil and picturesque place that it has inspired many a writer, like John Stanley James, E. J. Brady and Nathan Spielvogel to write about its peaceful beauty. The town boasts superb fishing and pleasant walks.
Marlo is the gateway to Victoria's Wilderness Coast. From here you can explore the Snowy River & Mountains, Erinunderra Plateau and National Park, Cabbage Tree Palms (a unique last bastion of centuries gone by), 90mile beach, fabulous water ways, and the Brodribb River and the Lakes region.
All water sports (yachting, wind surfing, canoeing, rafting, skiing etc) and safe swimming can be enjoyed in Marlo. A good jetty, Fishing Club, Yachting Club, Water Rescue Unit make it the ideal fishing holiday destination or summer family holiday spot.
