Welcome To The Neighbourhood: Bellarine Peninsula

Bellarine Moving Guide Buxton

The Bellarine Peninsula is a gorgeous region many Victorians would enjoy visiting and holidaying in, but why just visit when you could live there? The coastal lifestyle is so attractive for buyers, and to dive into why, we’ve created a Bellarine area guide.

Located approximately one hour and half south-west of Melbourne, the Bellarine Peninsula is home to over 55,000 residents. The area includes Barwon Heads, Drysdale, Ocean Grove, Point Lonsdale, Portarlington, Queenscliff and more.

Bellarine is seeing great growth with the addition of plenty of new housing, fantastic schools, shopping centres, and appealing lifestyle amenities.

To deep dive into why so many buyers are heading to the coast to plant roots, we have created a Bellarine moving guide to explain why people choose to live in beautiful Bellarine.

Point Lonsdale Beach


If living by the beach is on your house hunting list, Bellarine certainly ticks the box! Home to some of the best beaches in Victoria, you will find yourself heading down to the water often to not only admire the views, but swim, fish, surf, snorkel, play, and relax. Under the water, there is a rich sea life, shipwrecks, and beautiful reefs, and you can’t miss the historical lighthouse at Point Lonsdale – an area icon, and the Barwon River, a great spot to fish and relax. So, for you enjoy being by the water, Bellarine is great for you.

Cafés, Food & Wine

When an area has a taste trail, you know it is home to some magnificent food. If you love a great feed, or a delicious drop, living in the Bellarine Peninsula means you are not far from something amazing. From growers and makers like Manzanillo Olive Grove, Wildings Pantry Essentials and Bellarine Smokehouse, to restaurants and cafes like Piknik, Terindah Estate and 360Q, or even wineries and breweries like Scotchmans Hill, Flying Brick Cider Co and Jack Rabbit Vineyard – you’re bound to find something to tantalize your tastebuds.
