The beach-front town of St Leonards is situated near the Bellarine Peninsula's most easterly point, between Queenscliff and Indented Head.
The town centre is located at the eastern end of Murradoc Road and consists of a supermarket, several eateries, retailers and the iconic St Leonards Hotel which has a large outdoor beer garden overlooking the bay.
The St Leonards pier is situated across the road from the hotel. There is a kiosk at its entrance and the pier has several branches from which people can fish and enjoy the views of the coast. South of the pier is Harvey Park which features BBQ facilities and a playground that overlooks the beach.
North of the pier is the scenic route of The Esplanade which hugs the coastline along its path north towards Indented Head and Portarlington.
