Portsea

Glimpse the lifestyles of the rich and famous at Portsea's millionaire mansions, toast local characters at the historic Portsea Pub and feel the sun on your back as you learn to scuba dive.

See how the other half live
Spot Melbourne's rich and famous around Portsea during holidays. Take the Millionaire's Walk to Sorrento along cliff tops, through landscaped gardens and past private jetties for vantage points of their imposing mansions. Take in stunning views of the calm waters of Port Phillip Bay and the contrasting ocean beaches.

Summer on the water
Watch as surfers and iron-men battle it out in summer competitions or build your own skills on the water with a spot of sea kayaking.

Portsea's location at the tip of the Mornington Peninsula means you can cool off at a safe bay beach and be riding the surf at the ocean beach just minutes later. Slow down after a day out in the water with an evening with friends on the green lawns of the Portsea Pub.

Learn to scuba dive amid sea dragons and rays around Portsea Pier. Experienced divers can explore the reef system to the left of the pier, or venture by boat to outlying reefs and historic wrecks, like the former warship HMAS Canberra.

Trade bathers for hiking boots and set off on the 100-kilometre Mornington Peninsula Walk, or try out one of the shorter stints into Point Nepean. Take in peaceful bays, wild coastlines, tranquil bush, native animals and important Victorian history.

Defending Victoria's coast
Explore the fascinating labyrinth of nineteenth century tunnels and fortifications in the Point Nepean National Park that were built to guard Port Phillip heads. Pay a visit to the historic Quarantine Station, established in the early 1800s as grazing land and repurposed as a haven for refugees.
