There are plenty of attractions around Lonsdale Palms to keep you entertained. Some beaches are within walking distance and fun activities for the family are only a short drive away. We are close to many food and dining experiences, wineries and boutique shopping.

One of a kind experience  

You can’t go past the unique pleasure of sampling the best bites of the Bellarine on board a moving train. The Q Train (you might know it from a particularly thrilling Masterchef episode) gives guests a taste of the area with a six-course degustation menu served aboard a heritage train that puffs its way between Drysdale and Queenscliff. Or take a dive into the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park off the coast of Queenscliff with the fantastically named Sea All Dolphin Swims. Your go-to for mindblowing wildlife experiences, Sea All gets you up close with seals and dolphins with guided snorkelling or specialised sightseeing boats. And finally, make sure you head underground to the Queenscliff Distillery for a make your own gin masterclass – a hands-on experience that guides you through delicious botanicals and lets you take home a bottled product of your very own creation.

Food and dining

There are many great places to eat dinner, or relax with a fine coffee and sumptuous cake, on the Peninsula. You can walk leisurely down to the tasty coffee and cake shops at Point Lonsdale.

Or you can drive a short distance (or catch an Uber or public transport) down Ocean Grove, where you can eat at Bliss & Co Wholefoods, the Beach Terrace Café, Woodies Pizza and more. On the beachfront there is The Dunes Ocean Grove with a creative global menu. Or for beer lovers, the Brewicolo Brewing Company, with 5 star reviews.

Keeping the kids entertained

There is plenty to do and see down in the Bellarine Peninsula. A lot of activities are in walking distance too. This area caters for all age groups, from toddlers, young children and teens.
