Day 12: 14 April 2018 – Glamping in the Bellarine
With wild weather forecast for both Phillip Island and Sorrento I decided to pack up the Trak Shak early and head to the Mornington Peninsula. The weather closed in with gale force winds and rain making it impossible to capture the true beauty of these picturesque coastal villages. A quick drive around Sorrento and Portsea and out to Fort Nepean and then it was onto the Sea road ferry to Queenscliff. The crossing was relatively smooth going despite the choppy waters. On board we were greeted by a local who offered us all the important information on the region, including the best eateries and local breweries. The conditions made it easy to opt for fair weather ‘glamping ‘in a villa at the Big 4 Beacon Resort, Queenscliff. This is a brilliant park for kids with a pool, spa, jumping pillow and activities room on offer. I decided to head out in the elements to the tip of Point Londsdale where the lighthouse is situated as well as the Port Lonsdale Pier. I’m looking forward to viewing the local area tomorrow.
