Summer fun on the Northern Bellarine


firewworksAs previously reported on our Facebook pages, Twitter and Instagram, the fireworks display originally scheduled for 9.30pm this evening on the Portarlington foreshore was cancelled on advice from the CFA due to the extreme weather conditions that have led to New Year’s Eve being declared a severe Total Fire Ban Day. All rural fireworks permits have been revoked, however you can still catch the fireworks display in Geelong city at the waterfront at 9.30pm or midnight.


food vansGraeme’s world-class hot jam donuts and Vicki’s gelati and soft serve ice cream are again available on the foreshore over summer. Many of you would have tasted their delicious offerings already this week. Mr Mussel and Bella’s Smoked Fish can provide all your seafood treats and are located at Portarlington Pier.
