Information

Port Gibbon is a small locality that began as a town surveyed in 1916. It operated as a commercial facility until 1950 and as of 2005, had been demolished with the exception of a section on the beach which is used as a shelter. Boundaries for the locality were created in 1998 and include both the Port Gibbon shack site and the Government Town of Port Gibbon.

On the south side of The Knob is a relatively straight 3 km long beach that runs down toward a protruding bluff. The Port Gibbon road runs along the back of the beach with several beaches, then bluff top car parks. On the south side of the bluff, the Port Gibbon beach continues on for another 1.4 km to the port and small jetty. This beach is backed by 10 m high red bluffs composed of Pleistocene alluvium, with the small port settlement sitting on the bluffs overlooking the relatively sheltered beach, which is often covered with seagrass debris.

An RV park at this site offers some basic facilities but no power, and no showers for a small fee. However, you are also permitted to select a site if you prefer along the beach foreshore stretching from Gibbon Point and The Knob. Be sure to take a short drive and see the resident Bull seal and his females. Great fishing 100m from camp area. King George whiting in area. No power but water and drop toilets. There is a bush shower cubicle if you have water bags. Fantastic happy hour section. This area is very well maintained and clean.

The Port Gibbon locality is populated by shacks only and offers no local shops for replenishing supplies.
