Portarlington is a small seaside town with a population of approximately 3200 and is situated on the north-eastern corner of the Bellarine Peninsula, 31 km from the city of Geelong and 106 km from Melbourne.

Indented Head

For many years the name Indented Head was applied to the entire Bellarine Peninsula, as named by Matthew Flinders in 1802, with the ‘indent’ being Swan Bay itself. However, the name Indented Head is now used for the quaint coastal village situated between Portarlington and St Leonards on the Bellarine Peninsula with a population of more than 1100.

St Leonards

St Leonards is home to just over 2000 residents with a well-earned reputation as a friendly bayside village with a seemingly endless beach, an abundance of grassed foreshore and a centrally located pier that is popular with anglers and visitors year round.
