Drysdale Artists/Studios

Home of the festival of glass and the Springdale Art Show.

Sitting in the centre of The Bellarine puts this destination at a distinct advantage. It's in the middle of lush farmlands planted with vines, olives, fruits and vegetables. Beaches and bays are nearby and the open spaces are home to loads of family activities and attractions.

Drysdale is named after Anne Drysdale who, with her partner Caroline Newcomb, established a property named Coriyule near the town in 1843.

The 16 km Bellarine Peninsula Railway is run by the Geelong Steam Preservation Society. It has a number of vintage steam locomotives and carriages which take passengers on return trips from Drysdale to Queenscliff.

Drysdale is an artist's hub with a number of galleries and a yearly Springdale art show.

Glenda MacNaughton

I’m an Australian glass artist who is mesmerized by creating with glass in all its forms - from tiny glass seed beads woven into wearable art, shimmering glass mosaics forming wild garden sculptures to hot melted glass blown and pulled into elegant shapes and producing intriguing organic patterns for jewellery and small sculptures.
