Bellarine Winery Tours

Bellarine Winery Tours operate throughout the Greater Geelong region offering both public and private tours within the Bellarine Peninsula, as well as private tours within the Surf Coast and Moorabool Wine Regions.

Bellarine Winery Tours provide their customers with an enjoyable, relaxing and intimate experience, taking you to some of the region's best wineries. Tours provide you with great tasting wines, quirky and picturesque wineries, amazing scenery and information about the regions that the team are so passionate about.

Public and private tours operate within the Bellarine Peninsula with a number of different and unique wineries on each tour all with their own individual style and charm; from breath taking views of the bay and You Yangs, to quirky and unique artworks (not to mention their delicious wines). Breweries or cider houses can be incorporated into your tour.

Bellarine Winery Tours can pick up guests anywhere within the Central Geelong, Bellarine Peninsula or Torquay regions.

Mustang & Co

Mustang & Co. were recent finalist in the Tourist category of the Geelong Excellence awards – they know how to look after you and your group with full VIP treatment. The experience of cruising around in a Vintage 1966 Mustang Convertible puts a smile on everyone’s face.

Visit the award winning wineries on the Bellarine Peninsula and the Geelong region.  Wine tours can be booked to include lunch and tastings at many popular venues. 

Your driver will provide door-to-door service (not including Melbourne) - Mustang and Co can collect you from your Geelong location, Avalon Airport, Bellarine address, or Queenscliff and Port Phillip Ferry.

The tour would be a minimum four hours, with full day tours also available. The car can seat four adult passengers (plus driver). There is also an option for a “Mustang Mover” (seats 7 passengers) or a “Mustang Mini Bus” (seats 11 passengers) for larger groups.

Great for celebrating birthdays, Hens days, or work functions.

All tours are available weekdays and weekends.

 

How to get here

Visit by Air

Avalon Airport is 20 minutes from Geelong and the trip from Melbourne Airport takes an hour. Pick up a rental car or take the shuttle bus from either airport to central Geelong.

Visit by Rail

Regular rail services operate between Melbourne's Southern Cross Station and Geelong, and buses connect central Geelong with the suburbs and villages of The Bellarine.

Check out timetables at Public Transport Victoria.

Visit by Road

Geelong is only an hour from the Melbourne CBD via the Westgate and Princes Freeways, and Bellarine destinations are within half an hour of Geelong. It's a compact region, easy to explore by car.

Visit by Sea

Australia's favourite car and passenger ferry connects Queenscliff and The Bellarine with the Mornington Peninsula, Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and Phillip Island. The journey regularly encounters dolphins and other marine life. The lounge and external decks all offer spectacular coastal views as passengers relax and enjoy a coffee and the scenery, know they've avoided a tussle with Melbourne city traffic.

The 40 minute crossing departs every hour, every day between 7am - 6pm (7pm 26 December - 31 January).

Another exciting way to hit up The Bellarine and Geelong region, direct from Melbourne, is via a trip on Port Phillip Ferries. This new service runs between Portarlington and Victoria Harbour Docklands. With regular departures Monday-Friday for the work-day commute, and Saturday-Sunday for weekend adventures, the modern 35m catamaran vessel provides a comfortable vantage point to enjoy the sights and sounds of the bay, while you read the paper, catch up on emails, or simply enjoy your trip.

Geelong & The Bellarine

Geelong has all the benefits of a sizeable city but with the relaxed atmosphere of coastal country. Facing north on Corio Bay, Geelong boasts a glorious waterfront precinct, sophisticated dining options and all kinds of entertainment on tap.

There is a lively calendar of events and the region is perhaps the Australian wine industry's best-kept secret.
