There is something to suit everyone on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula! It is on The Bellarine that you will find top quality restaurants featuring local produce, delightful places to stay, a multiitude of attractions to keep all the family happy and many natural vistas. The Bellarine really has it all!
The region is also emerging as one of the best cool climate wine producing regions in Australia, specialising in producing varieties like shiraz, chardonnay and pinot noir. The vineyards on The Bellarine are located near Portarlington and Drysdale, and a must visit as much for the wine, as for the views over the vineyards and across the Bay to the You Yangs.
The Bellarine is the gateway to the marine wonderlands of Port Phillip Marine National Parks. Divers and snorkellers can delight in the many species of fish that are found in the local waters. For those of you who wish to learn about the marine life in the bay without getting a foot wet, the friendly staff at the Marine Discovery Centre in Queenscliff can show you many of the creatures from the deep. Those with a daring sense of adventure can organise a dive trip with the Queenscliff Dive Centre.
