Bellarine Peninsula Region Travel Guide

General Information About Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula

Overshadowed by the nearby, Great Ocean Road and Surf Coast, the Bellarine peninsula is one of the hidden gems along the road. If you look at a map all becomes clear, the Bellarine peninsula is a thumb shaped protrusion sticking into the sheltered Port Philip, protected from the Southern Ocean by a headland which extends to Queenscliffe. Dotted around the coastal perimeter of the peninsula are a series of small towns, which are just far enough apart to be separate towns but close enough together that it is pointless in engaging your cruise control. The protected andy beaches have for many years attracted tourists and recently the area has become a popular for its wineries .

Major Towns

Port Arlington

The township of Halls Gap, is located well inside the Grampians National Park and properties titles in the main street are controlled by a very small number of owners and as a result the development of the township of Halls Gap has been somewhat restricted. In fact first time visitors to Halls Gap are left wondering where in the township is actually located as result there is only one service station, one supermarket and one restaurant in the middle of Halls Gap. and the nearest pub is about 5 kilometres away. This has distorted the development of the township and deprived Halls Gap of a heart as there is no prices in the town and local visitors know to buy their food and petrol before going to Halls Gap. This notwithstanding Halls Gap is still a very pleasant place to visit and has a similar attractions to places like the Lakes District in England where hiking and bush walking are the most popular pursuits. The Grampians is also filled with most of Australia’s native flora and fauna and popular with overseas visitors looking to see Australia’s wild life in one location. Not to mention the Grampians is one of better wine growing regions and so attracts many wine and food buffs..

St Leonards

Located on the southern edge of the Grampians and on the Glenelg Highway Dunkeld is the southern gateway to the Grampians National Park The town has a population of about 400 and also services the local farming population so it has quite a different feel to Halls gap which relies totally on tourism Dunkeld however lacks the tourist capacity of Halls Gap and although it has one of the regions most up market hotels (the Royal Mail) there is not a large selection of accommodation available.
