About The Town
The Loch Township – The delightful country town of Loch lies amongst lush, rolling hills and farmland just off the South Gippsland Highway in Victoria.

The Real Estate values in Loch are climbing, especially as it is within easy commuting distance from Melbourne and the classy Antique shops, cafes and restaurants attract many tourists and day trippers from the city.
