Portarlington

Drive past the surrounding wineries and olive groves or come across the bay by boat to Portarlington, a historic town and favourite holiday spot on the Bellarine Peninsula. Settle in for a few days by the water or set off along the Bellarine Taste Trail.

Looking out
Discover local history at buildings such as the National Trust Flour Mill, built in 1857, and the Ol' Duke, built in 1855, now a smart hotel and restaurant. Make your way to the northern tip of the Bellarine Peninsula and admire sweeping views of Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne's skyline and the You Yangs.

Hook, line and sinker
Enjoy a slow walk and a swim on the bay beach, kick back on the beautiful foreshore or treat yourself to a day out on the water. Bring your boat, join a charter or hire one by the hour and try your luck with the rod and reel. Prefer to stay on dry land? Bring a cuppa and throw a line off the pier. Finish the day with a feast of freshly harvested mussels straight out of the bay.

Entertain us
Take the kiddies for a ride on the Portarlington Miniature Railway, open the first and third Sunday of every month. Seafood lovers will enjoy the Portarlington Mussel Festival, a celebration of the local industry and fun day full of music, local wines, beer and, of course, plenty of mussels.
