Welcome to Sweers Island

Important Information

ALCOHOL: Sweers Island is part of Mornington Shire and therefore we are subject its alcohol restrictions. Our airstrip is not included in our licensed area and it is an offence to possess alcohol on the airstrip. The maximum penalty for a first offence is $42,693.00 so we suggest that you do not try to bring alcohol in your aircraft or vessel.   VESSELS OR AIRCRAFT CARRYING ALCOHOL IN RESTRICTED AREAS MAY BE CONFISCATED.   We have a fully licensed bar with a good range of beer, wines & spirits and we also stock souvenirs, basic fishing tackle, lures, and general supplies like sunscreen etc. We keep our prices reasonable and equivalent to mainland prices. If you would like to see our price list for the bar or other items just contact us and we can email you a price list.

BOATING: Gulf waters are dangerous as conditions can change rapidly. Glass calm at 5pm can turn to 25 knot gale conditions by 10pm. If you are planning to travel to Sweers Island in a private boat please ensure that the skipper is experienced in open waters, and that all regulation radios, safety gear and navigation equipment are carried. Please check BOM website for weather conditions and please phone us before departure to establish a SARtime. FATALITIES HAVE OCCURED IN THIS AREA.
