What is Happening on Searoad Ferries

Queenscliff's new Open Air Gallery

Ten art boards have been installed along the newly-revamped Thwaites Walk, which runs along the seaward side of Citizens and Princess Park and down to the Maritime Museum.  Artists who found inspiration in Queenscliff, and whose work feature on the boards, are Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Albert Cooke, John Mather, Fred Williams, Alma Figuerola and Vaughan Griffin.

Bellarine Rail Trail

Looking for something a little bit different? Why not try the Bellarine Rail trail?

A great day or weekend destination close to Melbourne and Geelong with scenery ranging from suburban to rolling farmland to the picturesque Swan Bay.

The Bellarine Peninsula has fine wineries, beaches and landscapes, and a wealth of other recreation opportunities.

From Drysdale to Queenscliff the trail is beside the Bellarine Peninsula Tourist Railway. The tourist railway is happy to take bicycles on their trains if you don't want to ride in one (or both!) directions of this section.

A little bit of history:

The line was opened from Geelong to Queenscliff in 1879 to carry soldiers and materials to assist in the defence of Port Phillip Bay from possible attack by the Russians. It also carried holiday makers to the popular seaside resort of Queenscliff. The line was closed in 1976, but the section from Drysdale to Queenscliff was reopened as a tourist railway in 1981. It officially became a rail trail in 2000.

The Teddy & The Fox name was born from a chance encounter with the family dog, Teddy and our resident fox. 

The fox stuck his head out of the old wood shed at just the wrong time and the chase was on. 

Teddy never did manage to catch the fox but the fox did seem to enjoy the chase. 

Teddy and the fox now live in harmony together, where the fox never leaves the den when Teddy is around!
