Suburb Overview

Indented Head is a small coastal township located on the Bellarine Peninsula, east of Geelong, in the Australian state of Victoria. The town lies on the coast of the Port Phillip bay between the towns of Portarlington and St Leonards.

Indented Head was named by the explorer Matthew Flinders in April 1802 when he observed the shape of the Bellarine Peninsula coastline from the summit of Arthurs Seat, across Port Phillip. For many years the name Indented Head was applied to the whole of the Bellarine Peninsula. Flinders was at that time in the process of completing the first circumnavigation of Australia, undertaken between December 1801 and June 1803, making a detailed survey of the coastline for the British government, sailing aboard the HMS Investigator.

In 1835, the Tasmanian colonist John Batman set up his base camp for the land speculation company Port Phillip Association at Indented Head while he returned to Tasmania to collect his family and additional provisions. He left the small base camp in the care of his ex- convict servants William Todd and Gumm and 5 Aboriginal members of his party whom John Batman called Bullett, Bungett, Old Bull, Pigeon and Joe the Marine. Some of these Aborigines had been brought from Sydney to Tasmania by John Batman. John Batman employed mainland Aborigines hired in Sydney, New South Wales, for 'roving parties' hunting Tasmanians. Between 1828 and 1830, Tasmanians in north-eastern Tasmania were shot or rounded up by bounty hunters like John Batman.

Large numbers of local Aborigines moved in and out of the small camp at Indented Head and William Todd's diary records extensive 'Corrobboring', 'singing' and shared hunting parties with local Aborigines that Todd himself but poorly understood and generally did not participate in. On 3 August 1835, after the small camp's imported food supplies ran low, William Todd recorded, "We have commenced eating Roots the same as the Natives do" - these were murnong or Yam Daisy roots which were a staple of the local Aboriginal diet and would have been collected in large quantities by local Aboriginal women.

A monument marks the place where he was believed to have landed. The escaped convict William Buckley made contact with the men at Batman's camp in July 1835. Buckley had been living with the local Wautharong aboriginals for over thirty years since his escape from an early settlement near Sorrento in 1803.

Camping grounds were established along the Indented Head foreshore during the 1920s but it was many years before a permanent population was established, the Post Office opening in 1947.

The area is still a popular family holiday destination and facilities include a sailing club, a boat ramp, jetty, and numerous sandy beaches. The shoreline also hosts a number of historical boat sheds.

The retired Port Phillip paddle steamer, Ozone, was sunk at Indented Head in 1925 to form a breakwater. The wreck remains a distinctive landmark visible offshore from the main beach. One of the Ozone's anchors has also been incorporated into a monument located on the cliff-top beside the Taylor Reserve camping ground.
