Meeniyan is  located about 16 kilometres south-east of Leongatha on the South Gippsland Highway.

A picturesque country village in its own right, Meeniyan is also known as "the Turning Point", as those travelling on to Wilsons Promontory National Park have the choice of two routes to the Prom from here.

From Meeniyan, visitors can either continue along the Highway to Foster before bearing south to the Prom, or otherwise they can  turn south on to the Meeniyan - Promontory Road just east of the town and then reach the Park via Buffalo and Fish Creek.


Meeniyan's wide and shady median strip is ideal for a picnic as well as somewhere to watch the world go by.

 A wide median strip lined and shaded by tall mature trees runs through the heart of Meeniyan.

This section of the South Gippsland Highway is known locally as Whitelaw Street, after one of the district's earliest explorers and surveyors.

The median is home to the village's war memorial, a drinking fountain and pleasantly-situated picnic tables, all bordered by footpaths, garden beds and a row of timber bollards.

Whitelaw Street's shops sell a marvellous array of goods, from handcrafts, antiques, collectables and bric-a-brac right through to fuel, groceries, farm machinery and stockfeed.   

Refreshments are available from the village's several cafes and milk bars, as well as from the Meeniyan Hotel.

The recently-renovated Meeniyan Hall is one of the village's main landmarks.

Clean public toilet facilities may be found at the rear of the Hall.
