Bittern is a township on the Mornington Peninsula between Hastings and Crib Point. It is about 3 km from the coast of Western Port Bay and 61 km south-east of Melbourne. It was named after the wetland bird family of the same name, some members of which inhabit coastal mangroves and others inhabit swamps. Both landforms are present in and east of Bittern on the Western Port coastline.
