Indented Head is a tranquil coastal village, located south-west of Melbourne on the coast of Port Phillip Bay. It was named by European explorer Matthew Flinders in 1802 when he observed the shape of the shoreline. Fishermen, tourists, boaters, and beach lovers throng to the town during the summer for its famous shoreline and serene natural beauty. Here you can enjoy vineyard tours, visit some of the historic boat sheds and Port Arlington Mill, snorkel in the Ozone wreck, walk along The Esplanade, relax in Batman Park, and sunbathe on the pristine beaches. Experience the beach town pleasures and live like a local in one of these listed Stayz accommodations in Indented Head, Australia.
