About the Bellarine Blue Route

This route showcases the best of the Bellarine Peninsula. Breathtaking views, incredible wine and delicious produce will make your day on the Bellarine unforgettable.



What was, back in the 1880s, the largest grape-growing region in Victoria has undergone a renaissance in the last few decades. Winemakers have rediscovered rich soils and a climate that is halfway between France’s famed Bordeaux and Burgundy regions.

Geelong and the Bellarine region punch well above their weight, producing a raft of award-winning wines that are regularly listed in Halliday’s best of the best list.

Stop in at one of the 40-odd regional cellar doors that are open for tasting, and sampling from a diverse range of wines. Many wineries also have top-notch cafes and restaurants, where you can unwind and take in the scenery over a sumptuous meal with perfectly matched wine.
