Just a stone's throw down the road from Point Lonsdale is charming
Queenscliff. Sophisticated, graceful and trendy, Queenscliff is the
"jewel in the crown" for Bellarine tourism. Its magnificent old
buildings, quirky shops and ultra modern Harbour ensure that there is
something for everybody.
Queenscliff's proud history is passionately preserved and displayed in
its cluster of museums:
Queenscliff Maritime Museum;
Fort Queenscliff Museum and
Queenscliff Historical Society Museum.
On the last weekend in November, Queenscliff hosts the Queenscliff Music
Festival showcasing the best in contemporary Australian music and
artists. It attracts thousands of people over three days and would be the
single biggest attraction in the region. Queenscliff also promotes the
Seafood Feast at Easter and the Couta Boat Festival. Of course the
Bellarine Railway and the unique Blues Train hail from Queenscliff while
the Queenscliff/Sorrento Ferry is also based here.
