Mornington Peninsula – Blairgowrie

Blairgowrie is a delightful coastal town on the Mornington Peninsula, nestled between Rye and Sorrento.  A favourite amongst holidaymakers looking for a more relaxed option than the hustle of neighbouring destinations like Portsea and Sorrento, Blairgowrie has a small but prominent commercial hub of trendy cafes, gift shops and a boutique supermarket, all of which are popular amongst locals and visitors alike.  Blairgowrie Village is also where’s Mornington Peninsula representatives are located.

Hosting some of the Mornington Peninsula’s best beaches, Blairgowrie is positioned facing Port Phillip Bay in the north and Bass Strait in the south.  Calm and safe sandy beaches front onto Port Phillip which are popular with families, and on the opposite side a number of the top ocean beaches in the state of Victoria can be found, featuring striking cliff and sand dune walking trails, and is where little coves, reefs and the stunning Mornington Peninsula National Park meets the blue waters of the Southern Ocean.

Blairgowrie is also home to the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron, which can be accessed by both holidaymakers and local resident members. The club has a very active boating program and provides a strong junior sail training program.  There are also a number of small sand boat ramps which can be accessed in Blairgowrie, making it ideal for enthusiastic boaters and sailors.

There are some excellent holiday rentals to be found in Blairgowrie, often at a more reasonable rate than those found in Portsea and Sorrento.
