Drysdale, Victoria


Drysdale is a rural township located on the Bellarine Peninsula. The town itself has a population of around 3,700 residents.

Sitting in the centre of The Bellarine puts this destination at a distinct advantage. It’s in the middle of lush farmlands planted with vines, olives, fruits ……

The town itself is named after Anne Drysdale whose estate “Coriyule” still sits above the township. It was formerly known as McLeod’s Waterholes and Bellarine.

Drysdale today retains some of its former rural character but has also become popular with commuters. This change in the population has encouraged extensions of the relatively large shopping centre.

Grab a Pie at the bakery or dine in at the Drysdale Pub, their chicken Kiev is to die for.

McLeod’s Water Holes, Lake Lorne, Sunday Markets, and golf courses at Curlewis and Clifton Springs give visitors plenty to see and do. The Bellarine Peninsula Railway that runs to Queenscliff now terminates at Drysdale.

Drysdale offers easy access to both Geelong and the principal resort towns of the Bellarine Peninsula.
