Looking for some retail therapy?
There are heaps of options on the Bellarine Peninsula.
St Leonards Mill Markets are held each Saturday in January and on the Labour Day, Easter and Melbourne Cup long weekends.
Every town on the peninsula has a market ranging from farmers’ produce to regular markets containing the usual array of stalls.
Ocean Grove is the largest shopping centre on the Bellarine. The Terrace has plenty of boutiques and surf shops and two shopping centres at Marketplace and Ocean Plaza.
Barwon Heads’ Hitchcock Avenue has boutiques and clothing stores.
You can taste and purchase many of the Bellarine’s award-winning wines at a plethora of cellar doors dotted around the peninsula.
Don’t forget the op shops that abound here.
There are five in ocean Grove – two in the industrial estate and three close to the town centre.
There are two op shops in Drysdale and one in Clifton Springs while several others are scattered around the peninsula.
