Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff

Point Lonsdale Pier

Beside the seaside.

Visitors have been enjoying the sights, hospitality and sea air of Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale for more than 100 years. The impressive heritage architecture in Queenscliff nods to the Victorian era hotels and grand buildings, whilst the relaxed pace in beachside Point Lonsdale has been an idyllic coastal escape for families for generations.

It’s still the magnetic pull of the water that brings people to these parts. The pounding ocean to the South, Swan Bay creating the northern boundary and both towns overlooking the entrance to Port Phillip and the comings and goings of vessels. It’s intoxicating and magic to be beside the seaside.

What has changed in that time, besides the absence of petticoats, is the many ways the region can be explored and enjoyed. Tour operators and activities immerse visitors in water-based experiences that showcase the incredible marine environments. Adventures can be had by rail from Queenscliff, with heritage train rides operating by day with Bellarine Railway and a rocking (and rolling) night out with The Blues Train.

Eating and drinking can range from casual breakfast with a view through to specialised meals with hyper-local ingredients and matched wine, and there are more than a handful of good coffee options. The streets are also home to an array of independent shops and grocers with local wares.
