Bellarine Peninsula is a beautiful part of Australia, just a day trip from Melbourne. Our first stop is the beachside city of Geelong for a stroll along the waterfront. Today we visit 3 wineries for tasting, the first is Scotchmans Hill, next is Terindah Estate with great views over Philip Bay and the third is Jack Rabbit Vineyard which is our lunch stop. All wineries are different and wonderful. We are hoping after lunch you will still have room for a paddle of beers at Queenscliff Brewhouse. If cider is your thing, our last stop of the day is Fly Brick Cider House. This tour is not just about eating and drinking but all the spectacular scenery as well!
