Welcome to Portsea
This summer playground for affluent Melburnians is the last village on the peninsula, and its gilded denizens love the fact that it has far less tourist infrastructure than the villages closer to Melbourne. Their mansions are mind-bogglingly luxurious, but many are screened from view – it's Victoria's equivalent of the Hamptons. Passing through the shopping strip where the iconic Portsea Hotel (aka Portsea Pub) is located will eventually bring you to Point Nepean National Park with its historic fort and Quarantine Station. It's a wonderful spot to explore by foot or bike, and the waters at its edge are popular with divers and sea-kayakers.
