The seaside holiday centre of Blairgowrie is situated on the Mornington Peninsula, nestled between the popular beach resorts of Sorrento and Rye. The Blairgowrie township facing the beach on Port Phillip Bay, is set back from the main coastal road along the peninsula and is surrounded by parkland. This creates a delightful setting for the town. Bushwalkers and visitors are delighted by the spectacular walks and views in the Mornington Peninsula National Park which extends right along the rugged coastline adjoining Bass Strait. Blairgowrie has a beautiful sheltered and popular beach that overlooks Port Phillip Bay. It is ideal swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing and kayaking. The Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron also fronts the Bay and suuports the local sailors with excellent faciilities for launching and storing a wide range of yachts. Blairgowrie is a favourite spot for holidaymakers seeking a quieter alternative to the more popular and at times crowded destinations further along the Mornington Peninsula. As well as the Bay beaches, Blairgowrie also provides access to some of the best ocean ('back') beaches in Victoria. The rugged Bass Strait coastline features spectacular cliff scenery and spectacular walking tracks. Blairgowrie has a great range of attractions and recreational facilities, a small shopping centre, boat ramps and a wide range of holiday accommodation. There are many wonderful enetertaiment venues at Blaigowrie and in the nearby towns.
