Drive past the wineries and olive groves, or cross the bay to Portarlington, a favourite holiday spot on the Bellarine Peninsula.
Enjoy a swim at the bay beach, kick back on the foreshore or treat yourself to a day out on the water. Finish the day with a feast of freshly caught mussels and oysters from Advanced Mussel Supply, a big player in the growing local mussel and oyster industry.
The kiddies will love a ride on the Portarlington Miniature Railway, while foodies won't want to miss the Portarlington Mussel Festival.
Take in sweeping views of Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne's skyline and the You Yangs. And watch the progress of the eastern breakwater construction, part of the new safe harbour project which is expanding the harbour facilities.
