Point Lonsdale is at the tip of the Bellarine Peninsula, 27 km South-east of Geelong and is one of Victoria’s most picturesque regions combining the best of bay, ocean and hinterland. Swim, surf, snorkel, dive, fish, play golf, relax with a good book … it’s all part of the fabulous Bellarine Peninsula experience. Add friendly people and quaint villages, and you have the perfect holiday destination.
The Bellarine skirts the waters of Port Phillip Bay where every imaginable form of water-based recreation is possible. Boating, fishing, diving, snorkelling, swimming and sailing are among the most popular. Excellent facilities help you enjoy all that the bay has to offer.
Fun is the theme all along the Bellarine Peninsula. You can get yourself and your family lost at the puzzling Amaze'N Things one of Australia's largest mazes. You can go to water at Adventure Park, where you can tackle the thrilling waterslide, ride aqua bikes, paddle a canoe and race your friends in the go-karts. An indoor/outdoor mini-golf takes centre stage at Bellarine Peninsula Golf's challenging 36-hole layout.
The Bellarine is dotted with historic villages and holiday resorts. One of the best ways to get a feel for them is with a driving tour and the Peninsula’s compact nature and excellent roads make it easy to get around and discover more about these fascinating villages.
The Bellarine Peninsula has a long tradition of supplying the best in food and wine. Fertile soils ensure top-quality produce, including berries, apples and vegetables, from the undulating farmlands. Among those same hills are vineyards that generate grapes for the region’s award-winning wines. And the local fishing fleet provides a steady supply of the freshest seafoods.
The Peninsula’s reputation as a fine-wine producer grows with every vintage. From humble beginnings, the vineyards and wineries have blossomed overlooking Port Phillip Bay. The wineries, among them Scotchmans Hill, Spray Farm and Kilgour Estate, are open for cellar-door sales.
