Portarlington is a historic coastal township located on the Bellarine Peninsula, 28 km from the city of Geelong, in the state of Victoria, Australia.
Saltwater is a mood in these parts. The smell of the ocean is in the air everywhere.
Deciding what and where to eat can involve more effort than negotiating a mortgage. Here are a couple of suggestions that might make the decision easier. If in doubt, just do them all.

There’s plenty of local and fresh options to cook up a genuine feast with. The famous Portarlington Mussels, their farms visible from the town, are available with just harvested freshness. And there are boats located at Portarlington Pier that take charter tours out and about the bay and mussel farms.
Also for those perhaps wanting to take in more of the bay, the Portarlington Pier offers a ferry service to and from Portarlington Pier to the Docklands daily.
