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 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!

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. This place would have to have the best kept park we have been in, the amenities are one of the best, they have glass doors and screens in the showers and they are all with plenty of room.

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...

We stayed in a Park Cabin for 3 nights. which was spotlessly clean and had lovely bedding. The cons were: The area around the cabin was very smelly ( not sure the source- maybe rotting seaweed or something, but I wouldn't stay here again.

Hi JoW26 Thank you for your review. Unfortunately being so close to the beach there will always be a seaweed/beachy smell throughout our holiday park. We are glad you enjoyed the internal facilities of the cabin apart from the TV reception, which is a result of not being in a major or regional city (although we are close). It is...

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

“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)”
