Portsea is one of the smallest suburbs on the Mornington Peninsula with only 510 permanent residents in 2016. It is a slightly longer drive away from Melbourne compared to other suburbs and has more of an exclusive feel due to its relatively remote location.
Portsea is a great place for scuba diving, with a wide variety of marine life found in the nearby waters. The hard currents, higher boat traffic, and large waves means that much greater care should be taken during water sports in this area.
The exclusivity of this suburb makes it home to many of Australia’s rich and famous. Millionaire mansions dot the many cliffs of Portsea, taking advantage of the spectacular views they offer of Port Philip Bay.
