The Bellarine Football League is an Australian rules football competition based in the Bellarine Peninsula region of Victoria, Australia, formed in 1971.

Six of the eight founding clubs played in the Polwarth Football league the year before

Two Polwarth clubs, Lorne and Apollo Bay, were forced to join the CDFL. Drysdale and Barwon Heads (chief initiator) joined from the Geelong & District Football League.

The Bellarine Football League forms the third tier of football in the Geelong area, along with the Geelong Football League and the Geelong & District Football League.
