"Great beach"

Just love the area......just purchased land in the area and we cant wait to move here. Its great as its only a 1hr30min drive to Melbourne {rat race} and the bus service goes to Geelong and you can get a train into Melbourne too.
The beach in Indented head is so beautiful, great for swimming and great for fishing....if that's your thing.
Only 3 mins to St leonards and about 5 mins to Portarlington.

"Victorias Secret"

I live and work near Indented Head, so visit there regularly. It has one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline - where you can easily walk along the beach , for hours and find yourself just taken by the beauty. Its also great to call into the General Store for coffee. I'm also fortunate to be selling land at Secret by the bay - a land subdivision just 200 meters to this beautiful beach. Why not call in and see me at Stockdale & Leggo, Portarlington to find out about this secret.

"The last quiet hamlet on Port Phillip Bay"

Beautiful sandy beaches with shallow safe swimming beaches
Snorkel around the wreck of the Ozone paddle steamer
Modern local shop serving all your needs, hot food & alcohol
Excellent single lane boat ramp with loads of good car & trailer parking
Unbelievable views of the City of Melbourne, day & night
You can buy a beach house for less than $300,000 still
Or pay a little more & live really close to beach
I am a resident of the area & love

"Camping on the water"

When we camped at Indented Head I couldn't believe how close we were to the beach and how clean it was. Usually when you get a campsite that's close to the beach you get a bunch of teenagers drinking alcohol until three in the morning playing bad music!!

This place was great including the Mister Whippy that came at 6pm with the best choc-top I've ever had.

The town of Indented Head doesn't have much but you don't need much and when you are craving for the Melbourne style breakie and coffee you just head into Port Arlington.
