The township of Pearcedale is right at the top of the Peninsula, and the first town to be encountered by visitors coming from Melbourne via the Monash Freeway.
Pearcedale is an area of quiet country lanes, market gardens and horse studs. Watch out for farmgate sales of fresh produce. Views of Western Port Bay can be seen though roadside trees, as the town is only three kilometres from the bay.
The township itself has all amenities, including a full range of shops and a petrol station.
The Pearcedale Farmers Market is on the third Saturday of every month 8am to 1pm, where you can purchase crisp local veggies, honey, avocados organic cookies, grass fed beef, freshly picked salad greens and herbs, potatoes, olive oil and local cheese, plus unusual and drought tolerant plants.
