"First Class Location"

A peaceful and much sought after hamlet gracing the Port Philip Bay foreshore between Rye and Sorrento. The beaches are superb with boat launching facilities on the Tyrone foreshore for your convenience. You have the choice of stunning sedate bay beaches or exciting untamed ocean surf beaches, both are truly spectacular. The Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron offers first class facilities for members with a very active social scene as well as a good mix of casual and competitive sailing activities. There are exceptional mooring facilities adjacent to the club facilities. Everybody loves the Blairgowrie Village with its eclectic collection of shops, restaurants, bars and take away`s as well as a well stocked IGA Supermarket and adjacent bottle shop/cellar. Sorrento and the Queenscliff ferry are just down the road and the restaurants and cellar doors of the Peninsulas famous wineries are a pleasant short drive into the hills to sample some award winning local wines. Blairgowrie property prices vary considerably in relation to location and in many cases offer a more affordable alternative to the highly sought after areas of Sorrento and Portsea. Locals and visitors alike seek the "lay back" atmosphere that this idyllic seaside village has to offer. Best of all we are only an hour or so from the CBD.

"Quiet town sandwiched between Sorrento and Rye"

Was once a hidden gem but has recently been discovered and prices are started to get up around Sorrento levels.
