There are two ways into Queenscliff. One is via The Narrows, a skinny strip of land bound by Swan Bay and Port Phillip Bay that carries both the road and rail tracks. An avenue of tall trees form a green guard of honour and you know you’re headed somewhere special. The other is on board Searoad Ferries, the car and passenger ferry from Sorrento. It’s a stunning journey where you park the car below and kick back with a coffee to enjoy the views, hassle free. At the terminal, Roro Café is a great option while you wait for your ferry (they depart every hour, on the hour) or just for good food nestled in the sand dunes.

Queenscliff Harbour is the starting point for all sorts of seaborne adventure. Fishing charters drop a line in the bay or in the deeper waters of Bass Strait. Divers depart for seawalls or sunken sites that are home to diverse and colourful marine life. Sea All Dolphin Swims cruise Port Phillip Bay where wildlife can be spotted, either on or in the water. Looking out over it all is the spectacular 360Q restaurant and event space.

From Queenscliff Train Station you can kick off another rocking (and rolling) party, The Blues Train. Operating most weekends from August to May, the vintage steam train chugs across The Bellarine to Drysdale.

By day this precinct is home to Bellarine Railway, offering regular vintage train trips including special occasions where themes include A Day Out With Thomas, Santa and the Easter Bunny.

In central Queenscliff, tours from the visitor centre give insight into the history of the town, as does the Queenscliffe Maritime Museum and Fort Queenscliff. There is a collection of galleries with exciting programs and more than a couple of good places to eat and stay.

Step back in time or step aboard to discover classic Queenscliff.
