Safe Harbour, Portalington’s long-awaited development, is now offering convenient access to local attractions for those eager to take advantage of its new visitor berths.

Whether its low key you’re looking for or quality dining, with the convenience of approximately 100 new berths, this beautiful part of Victoria provides the perfect waterside retreat. The pier itself offers playground facilities, barbecue, picnic areas and access to local shops and eateries.

With Summer well and truly here, we’ve compiled some of the best reasons to visit and immerse yourself in everything Bellarine has to offer.

 

Enjoy Portarlington’s Famous Mussels

Portarlington’s mussels weren’t dubbed as iconic for no reason. Visit Advance Mussel Supply’s farm and cafe (open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) or watch the mussel fleet in action at the pier where you can buy fresh by the kilo.

Visit Portarlington Mill

Built in 1857, The Portalington Mill is one of the area’s most loved nineteenth-century treasures. This historic sandstone gem boasts a fascinating history and is open to the public on weekends.

Grab a meal and catch some live music at Saints And Sailors

For something more laid back, pull up at the berth and wander over to Saints and Sailors. This cosy, retro-styled waterhole is great for a catch up over a fresh platter or pizza.

Explore Portarlington’s vineyards

Portarlington boasts a handful of award-winning wineries and restaurants. Wine lovers can visit the vineyards casually or take advantage of the regular tours.

Visit Portarlington Golf Club

Whether you’re an avid golfer, or keen for a bistro bite, Portalington Golf Club is ideal for unwinding and enjoying traditional clubhouse food and entertainment.

Jump on the ferry to the city

Take the scenic 90-minute ferry to the city and enjoy views of the Harbour and the Yarra River. Running regularly, 7-days a week, departure times can be viewed via the Port Phillip Ferries online timetable.
