Located at the rocky outcrop at the south-eastern end of the Bellarine Peninsula, where the calm waters of the Port Phillip meet the choppy seas of Bass Strait.
Point Lonsdale offers many things to do and places to explore. In many ways it’s a quintessential coastal township.
Whether you want to enjoy the walking track which winds along the foreshore to Queenscliff, walk the iconic Point Lonsdale Pier or simply enjoy the fantastic view at the point’s lighthouse.
The lighthouse also features walking tracks which circle down the rocky headland to the beach below.
Just north of the lighthouse, the Point Lonsdale Pier always has fishermen trying their luck and itself is a good vantage point for views back towards Point Lonsdale and taking pictures of the lighthouse.
As Christmas is on the horizon, the huge 100 year old Pine tree, affectionately known as ‘The Christmas Tree’ will light up again by the faithful volunteers. You’ll find the tree at the corner of Grimes Road and Point Lonsdale Road. Incidentally the tree when lit up at night can be seen for miles out to sea and is a Queenscliff icon.
