Bellarine Peninsula

The Bellarine Peninsula is a collection of towns fronting the sandy beaches of Port Phillip and the exhilarating ocean waters of Bass Strait.


The Bellarine Peninsula is also an acclaimed food destination with its collection of wineries, breweries, farm gates and dining establishments. A car and passenger ferry links the historic maritime defence port of Queenscliff to Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula.


Dozens of wineries call the Bellarine peninsula home due to the rich soils and climate that is halfway between France’s famed Bordeaux and Burgundy regions. Organise a wine tour or visit some on your own. Many have delicious cafes and restaurants to enjoy while sipping on the local wines.


Double the fun with calm beaches on the Port Phillip Bay side, perfect for a calm walk, kayak, or snorkel. Hit up the ocean side for awesome surf beaches and some beautiful views!
