  Bellarine Peninsula
by Sweetberry1

Sorrento and Portsea, on the Mornington Peninsula, are filled with antique shops, galleries, cafes and numerous walking trails along the ocean-facing coastline.
Inland, you?ll find a number of wineries, where many vineyard restaurants create gourmet dishes to match their wines.

On the Bellarine Peninsula, the historic town of Queenscliff boasts many Victorian buildings, fishermens? cottages, galleries and shops....

Both Bellarine and Mornington peninsulas offer many water activities.
In particular, surfing, sailing, swimming and fishing are enjoyed, as is swimming with resident populations of dolphins and seals.

This region is also known for its markets, artist workshops, championship golf courses and fresh produce... you can pick your own strawberries, cherries and other seasonal fruits or buy directly from the farm gate.
Wallington is just one of these 'berry' towns,
they also have a Strawberry Festival every year.

Directions: South-eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Torquay and Warrnambool
