"Hands down, best town"

We have lived in Drysdale for years and would never live anywhere else. We love the village feel with the High Street and no huge shopping centers, having said that it has everything you need. Supermarkets, all the major banks, Post Office, Library, Cafes and the pub are all within walking distance to each other. There is also plenty of sports and recreation for the whole family to rest and play. There are currently a few new developments in town which offer land to build brand new homes which is great for people moving to the area. I would personally steer away from the big developments on Jetty Road as that are will not experience the Drysdale feel. However there is a nice one in the heart of town where we bought to retire to. I would recomend Drysdale to anyone who asks and will sing its praises until the day I die! I hope this helps.

"Hidden gem"

Shifted here 3 months ago. Awesome neighbors and a very friendly place wherever you are. Has a lot more country feel and hospitality compared to geelong. Certainly a hidden secret on the bellarine. Would recommend to anyone from young couples and families to retirees. 5 stars from me and only 10 minutes away for a surf
