Blairgowrie is a residential suburb and beach resort on the Mornington Peninsula, 64 km south of central Melbourne. Situated between Rye and Sorrento, Blairgowrie has beaches on Port Phillip Bay and on Bass Strait, although the latter includes several rocky headlands.

In common with Rye and Sorrento, Blairgowrie was the site of lime production for the Melbourne building trade from the 1850s. Locally extracted lime was burnt and transported across the bay.
