Why visit Dromana? Why wouldn’t you? Whether you’re searching for the perfect foreshore spot to while away the time on the sand or in the sea or are hankering for a place to chow down on some scrumptious cuisine with mates, Dromana’s got the lot.
Perfectly pretty and full of friendly people, Dromana brings the best of outdoor adventure and delicious dining alternatives together to offer a lifestyle envied by many. With the natural beauty of Arthurs Seat State Park flanking the township and the wide open sky in the distance stretching out over Port Phillip Bay, this is a part of the Peninsula where the good times roll, particularly over summer when the joint is jumping.
From the quaint coloured beach boxes dotted along the shoreline to views of a lifetime offered up from the top of Arthurs Seat, this is a place where fun times linger. The boutique shopping is diverse, while the café scene is alive and kicking delivering delicious coffee, sweet treats, alfresco menus and a dedicated space to meet and greet like-minded people.
Over the years, Dromana has retained its unique charm as a seaside village brimming with history. From the Dromana pier, which was built in 1959 to replace the original historic jetty built during the mid-1860s, to the memorial cairn unveiled in 1929 at Chapman’s Point commemorating the pioneering Chapman Family, this is where memories are made and remembered.
So why not visit? Come to where the anglers still cast their lines off the pier while kids scream in excitement and travellers gather taking photos. Put down your picnic rug in Seawinds Gardens or head to Murrays Lookout to take in the view or just stop on the foreshore and breathe. You are in Dromana.
