Located approximately 85km from Melbourne, Blairgowrie is one of the Peninsula's prettiest beachside towns nestled between Sorrento and Rye.
The sandy beach on this calm Port Phillip Bay location is popular with swimmers and boating and water sport enthusiasts. Koonya Ocean Beach, at the end of Hughes Road, is the most easily accessible, with a lookout at the car park providing views down to the rocky outcrop of Pelly Point and inland across Blairgowrie towards the bay beach. Other places of interest along this scenic coastline include Bridgewater Bay at the end of St Johns Wood Road, Pearses Beach and Dimmicks Beach.
A small shopping strip situated opposite the bay beach, boasts a boutique supermarket, speciality shops and cafes.
Stunning walks and scenery can be enjoyed in the Mornington Peninsula National Park which runs along the rugged Bass Strait coastline. With numerous walking tracks along cliff tops, through sand dunes and down to the beaches below, Blairgowrie is the perfect place to settle for your holiday to ensure you enjoy the best the Peninsula has to offer.
