Point Lonsdale is a coastal town on the Bellarine Peninsula on the topside where the waters of Port Phillip meet the Bass Strait at this entrance point. On the othersider is Point Nepean and Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula. Point Lonsdale is 103 km (64 mi) SW of Melbourne; 28 km (17 mi) SE of Geelong.
This is one of the best and safest beaches on the Bellarine for families with young kids. Plenty of area for them to play on the sand or explore the rocks at low tide. If the tide is high there is always the park and playground to keep kids occupied. Small but picturesque little beach at the mouth of port Phillip. Parents still need to be careful not to venture out too far and watch the children. It has both a bay beach (safe for families with young children) and a surf beach next to lighthouse.
Toilets and changing areas are clean and modern and views of the Lighthouse, the Heads and the shipping traffic are fantastic. It is a beautiful beach where you can watch the ships entering and leaving the bay.
There is a wide walkway alongside the beach and in the township the small shopping strip with eating-places and moderate sized supermarket is just across the road from the beach.It is great to walk along the foreshore and up to the jetty and pier, lovely cafes and great food with easy access to get to ferry to Queenscliff. Also great spot to enjoy fishing if you are into that especially on the pier. For more detail shots please check out our Photography page 🙂
