Arriving from Melbourne

Driving your car.

  • An easy 1 hour 30 minute drive from Melbourne CBD along the multi lane freeway, Princes Hwy.
  • Simply head towards Geelong and veer left when you see the sign for Portarlington (C123) before start of Geelong bypass. At Drysdale we suggest you take one of the two sign posted alternatives to  bypass Drysdale, Jetty Road or Andersons Road (Part Dirt Road). The Geelong Portarlington Road will be very congested and you may like to consider the following alternative:
  • Take the Bellarine Highway  (B110) towards Queenscliff and just before Point Lonsdale turn left onto the Portarlington Queenscliff Road (C126) and follow signs to Portarlington.
