A caravan park with a view of Port Phillip that is outstanding. The park facilities are wonderful. Plenty of bar-b-ques and the indoor eating areas are well equipped with brand new appliances. Caravan spots are plentiful and very roomy and easy to park the van. Plenty of walking tracks and a very easy walk up to the town for coffee...

Our first time stay has been terrific. The park staff were extremely friendly and terrific with the kids. The proximity to the beach is great and the beach setting is very much like the Greek isles. Kids loved snorkelling and splashing around.. Amenities are super clean and the grassy sites are lovely. A short walk to the shops and the...

We've spent our Christmas holidays at Portarlington for the past 14 years. We've always stayed at Bellarine Bayside. Our site faces the water and the beach is on our doorstep. Excellent, level powered site with heaps of space for caravan, annex and car side by side. The facilities are very well maintained. We're lucky enough to have an ensuite site...

Hi Russell Thank for your great review. Don't forget we have a summer food van area now on Boat Rd with a number of different food trucks on the weekends and a permanent food van for January. We will also have food trucks in the park for the Labour Day and Easter long weekends. Timetables are available on our website...

We have been coming here for quite a few years now and love the park and made some great friends , although this year was unhappy with management with my autistic son , he liked to visit reception and watch the cars drive by , we never let him stay there for long and were always a step behind him...

Hi caravanob Thank you for sharing your disappointment with us. Bellarine Bayside strive to be as inclusive as possible to ensure all our guests have an enjoyable and comfortable camping experience. We understand that your son enjoyed spending time in the reception area and I suggest that it wasn't that his presence was not wanted, but more that at times...

I have been coming here for nearly 13 years in my van and I love it. Very safe, very family oriented and magical beach views with dolphins to watch some nights. What more could you ask for? The amenities are amazing and very competitively priced.

Best place! Love it, wouldn't go anywhere else. Staff are great, rules are fair, fellow campers are great. Never seem to have an issue with anyone else staying at the caravan park! Good to see that they are doing up the parks over the next few years

Hi Caz Thank you for your great review and feedback. We have this year installed a jumping cushion in the off-season so another great activity in the park for kids this summer! As for the onsite shop/cafe/takeaway food option, we did have this in the past at Arthur's as you would be aware, however in recent years we didn't receive...

No lies about this being Bayside. You can't get much closer to the beach. Very quiet and clean park. Amenities reasonably new and kept very clean. Showers even have doors not curtains (love that). Staff very courteous, happy and helpful (thanks Helen). Highly recommend.

We love this place, nice sites and fantastic amenities.

Initial thought was no trees, so used to staying in more rural areas. But this is a great holiday park, well laid out - great amenities - specially great for families and children. Location is excellent, within walking distance to the quaint shopping strip. Lots parkland around, good walks and great bike paths. The camping sites are plenty big and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bellarine Bayside operates absolute beachfront holiday parks in Portarlington, Indented Head and St Leonards and is the ideal location to base yourself on the Bellarine Peninsula. Located within close proximity of several award-winning wineries, delicious local food producers, and family-friendly activities there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. The Northern Bellarine Coastal trail spans the foreshore from Pt Richards in Portarlington through to St Leonards. Walk, run or cycle along its meandering path that hugs the beach and sand dunes, and takes you across creeks and around a nationally-significant saltmarsh. Portarlington Holiday Park is open all year round and has a range of accommodation options to suit all needs. Enjoy the privacy of a self-contained cabin, park your van on a powered site or just pitch the tent right near the beach. Indented Head and St Leonards provide summer-only, beachside, powered camping sites. ... more   less

“We stayed 3 rows of sites back from the beach which was cheaper, less windy and more grassy. A 50m walk to the beach was no problem.”

“If you are camping in a group try to ask for adjoining sites preferably with the road in the middle of the sites. This will give you extra central area. (Sites are in a Square 2x2)”
