From an old postcard, Neil’s Inverloch Hotel pictured in 1908. It sat at the top of A’Beckett St., in Sandy Mount Avenue. It was de-licensed in 1922 and became the Two Views Guesthouse. For many years it was a local landmark & was demolished in 1968.

Members of the Inverloch Angling Club circa 1960. Dressed appropriately & ready for a good days fishing,

The total population of the Inverloch Primary School – Grades 1 to 8 in 1922. Some children have bare feet, some look puzzled, a couple even unhappy looking, whilst some are proud. Old school photos always have an endearing quality to them.
INVERLOCH To WONTHAGGI BUS – outside MILL’S STORE, Williams St (bottom of A’Beckett St), Inverloch.
Proudly standing in front of his International bus, the driver with hat that all men traditionally wore, either’ awaits passengers, or has just completed a trip. Wonthaggi was the nearest railway station to which the bus connected.
