Located a short drive away from the bustling summer town of Rye, Tootgarook offers a family friendly beach in a much quieter location. An ideal beach to lay out a blanket for a relaxing afternoon of sunbathing, pack a picnic and enjoy the warm sand while watching the sun set over the horizon. Visitors can also take advantage of the seasonal boat launch ramp. One of the
main attractions of the town is its expansive wetlands which spans 381 hectares. It is a mecca for birds, plants and animals. There are tracks around the wetland making it easy to explore the property. The wetland provides habitat for a large variety of birds, including many migratory and endangered species.
