Overview

Queenscliff

Discover the best of old and new in this historic seaside village on the Bellarine Peninsula. Wander down heritage streetscapes, past elegant Victorian-era hotels, stately churches and quaint fishermen's cottages and on to the modern waterfront development, the perfect base for exploring Port Phillip Bay.

Village life

Walk along Hesse Street and find exemplary displays of heritage architecture, art galleries, shops and great places to dine. Unwind with a great brew at a quiet cafe or step into the majestic Vue Grand for contemporary regional fare. Stock up on fresh produce at specialty shops and community markets, peruse the local boutiques, or grab a piping-hot parcel of fish and chips for a seaside picnic under the shade of giant foreshore pines.

Rev it up on the Blues Train, a rollicking journey across the peninsula in a steam train, with a revolving cast of the best blues artists in the country.

Golf enthusiasts will appreciate the sweeping greens and unique island setting of the Queenscliff Golf Club. While in November the Queenscliff Music Festival reels in local and international acts in a family friendly atmosphere.

On the bay

Explore the endless opportunities for water activities on Port Phillip Bay, with a range of charter boats departing Queenscliff. Dive down to some of Australia's best reefs and shipwrecks to check out the abundant marine life beneath the waves. Swim with dolphins and seals or try a spot of fishing from piers, beaches or charter boats. Ride the ferry from Queenscliff to Sorrento, a 40-minute journey, which takes passengers and cars to the other side of Port Phillip Bay.
