"Beautiful, peaceful town to live"

I lived in the City for most of my life and decided to buy and live here since I work from him. There’s plenty to do in summer, beach and markets, nice wineries and restaurants and nice people. I much prefer it to Geelong. In winter it’s very quiet though.

"The Beautiful Bellarine"

I consider myself fortunate that I can live and work in St Leonards, a small coastal village on the Bellarine Peninsula. The population swells over the Xmas period with holiday makers which gives the township that buzz and tourist atmosphere. The safe swimming beach, walks through reserves, and fishing draws people to the area. In the off season we as residents can take advantage of the peace and solitude, but know that we are only a 35 minute drive to Geelong or 90 minutes to Melbourne if we need to go cosmopolitan.

Great for

  • No traffic lights
  • Good fishing
  • Great swimming beach

"Superb seaside location."

We moved here from Central Victoria in June 2010 and have found it is an ideal spot to live. Lots of community groups in the township and even more when you extend yourself across the northern Bellarine Peninsula. Many great social and community networks to join if you want to be active and participate. As a holiday destination for many, the population ebbs and flows according to the season.
Weather can be windy and sometimes bracing, but it is more than made up for in the number of glorious days that regularly occur.
Shopping facilities are reasonable – Chemist, Supermarket, Newsagent/Post Office, Pizza and Fish & Chip shops, Café and a Hardware Shop. If you need some retail relief Drysdale is 10 minutes and Geelong 25 minutes.
Town also has a Doctor Surgery and Community Health Centre. Ancillary health facilities abound in Drysdale.

"One of the last undiscovered bayside towns of Port Phillip Bay"

Fantastic fishing, currently snapper, whiting on the go
Golf course
Bowls club
Small commercial centre
Fish off the Pier
Four lane boat ramp
Major shopping centres just 12 minutes (Drysdale) to 15 minutes (Ocean Grove)
Sandy beaches with shallow tidal area great for children to swim
You really feel like you have gotten away from it all when you are down here & its only 1 1/2 hours to Melbourne
I live locally & work for CJ Keane & co Real Estate 5257 1744 in the area and I just can't explain to people why I am so happy everyday, maybe cause everyday feels like a Sunday
