Location

Barwon Heads, Victoria, Australia

Two minutes walk to the Barwon Estuary. This is a special place. Barwon Heads Village is two kilometres away. The walk to the village is made along the river and is a very pleasant 20 minute stroll or jump on the pushbikes provided for an easy, flat cycle into the village or to the beach. Use the Kayak to gently paddle along the river and enjoy the sights, birdlife or fishing.

The Bellarine Taste Trail is a haven for wine and food lovers. Spend lazy days visiting beautiful cellar doors.

Barwon Heads eateries are quite exceptional. Take the time out for dinner and return home to relax with an outdoor firepit.
