Queenscliff Marina


On it’s website, Queenscliff Marina is described as a ‘destination in itself, a dynamic retail precinct includes tourism, marine, leisure, fashion & giftware and hospitality businesses. Foodies are not forgotten. From fine dining to fish & chips, coffee, cake, icecream and the best local produce and seafood will be available in surroundings offering incomparable bay views.’ As well as being an important harbour, just inside the heads of Port Phillip Bay (the gateway to Melbourne), it’s the home of charter businesses for dolphin swims, diving and fishing.’

Queenscliff is also the home of the Queenscliff-Sorrento ferry, a car and passenger ferry that takes you from the Mornington Peninsula to the Bellarine Peninsula on the other side of Port Phillip Bay. There is so much to do on either side of the bay and the ferry ride is only 40 minutes compared to more than two hours drive through Melbourne and Geelong.

The tower is a lighthouse, the first built in 94 years. An interesting fact is it was constructed using a single concrete pour over three days.
