The Queen of Watering Places


If the heart of pleasure lies in good health, the Borough of Queenscliffe had it in spades. In the late 1800s, people flocked here in their thousands. Initially they sought the ‘curative powers’ of the seaside within easy distance of Melbourne or Geelong.

Over the years, holidays changed in style, but Queenscliffe has always remained a popular destination for rest, recuperation, relaxation, and entertainment.
