So you are thinking of visiting Queenscliff

Queenscliff, a seaside resort on the Bellarine Peninsula is a very popular beachside destination steeped in a rich heritage characterised by elegant hotels, guesthouses, galleries, restaurants, cafes, a fine golf course, ferries and wide streets with terraced houses. It has both bay and surf beaches.

It still has 19th-century stone and timber fisherman’s cottages, and a working wharf, boat builders and plenty for the anglers.

It is situated around 30 kms from Geelong just within the entrance tp Port Phillip Bay.

Fort Queenscliff which was built on Shortlands Bluff, overlooking the commercial shipping lanes for Melbourne and Geelong. This was one of my favorite destinations as a child and still should not be missed.

In recent years Queenscliff updated it ferry service to large vehicle carrying vessels so it can be accessed via Geelong or Sorrento.

A fisherman’s paradise and one of the most relaxing seaside destinations in Victoria.

So you are thinking of visiting Maldon

Maldon is like stepping 100 years into the past. Very few towns have kept their historic look and feel as well as Maldon has. In fact it was the first Victorian town to be classified by the National Trust. Wide verandahs, large shade trees, flagstone paving and original style shop fronts provide a streetscape that will make you feel like you are walking through the past.
Yabbie pies are the specialty of this town so take some time out to sit down and enjoy, as they are a rare treat. Cafes, restaurants and pubs to sate your appetite, specialty shops for gifts, boiled lollies or old fashioned toys, and bakeries for treats both sweet and savoury.
There’s even a horse and buggy for tours about the town.
Take the rare opportunity to stay and eat in a town that offers beauty unspoilt by rampant commercialism, gives country hospitality and still offers everything you need to relax and feel pampered.
