Breamlea is a coastal locality on Bass Strait, between Torquay and Barwon Heads and 16 km south of Geelong. Its previous names have included Bancoora and Bream Creek; ‘Breamlea’ replaced Bream Creek in the 1930s.

Much of the terrain back from the coast is wetland, and about 400 metres from the beach there is Buckley’s Well, a freshwater source reputed to have been used by William Buckley who lived among local Aborigines from 1803 to 1835.
