Pelican Sands Accommodation Protarlington

Local Attractions

At just over an hour from Melbourne, Pelican Sands Portarlington and The Bellarine Peninsula offers the perfect weekend getaway. When visiting the Bellarine you can choose from all kinds of activities, involving water based activities (diving, fishing, boating, surfing, swimming with dolphins and snorkelling), other sports (particularly cycling and golf). But what we believe is the jewell in the crown for your time on the Bellarine Peninsula, The Taste Trail. You can spend your days here sipping at out world class wineries and supping at our superb restaurants and cosy cafes. With the majority of the wineries and restauants only kilometres apart, you can decide whether you want to ride a bike, drive yourself or take advantage of one of the many personalised tours offered across the region.
