Aboriginal for Crayfish, Nubeena is the civic centre for the Peninsula and the best spot to top up on food, drink and local insights. Set above the picturesque Parsons Bay, and with two IGAs, bottle shops, a RSL, a bank, pharmacy, and civic grounds that are used for fantastic food, craft and music festivals, Nubeena is as big a town as it gets down here. But like many rural towns, most shops close around 6pm, so get in early and don’t expect a hopping night life.
