This year we had a fantastic time staying at the Big 4 Beacon Resort in Queenscliff.  The facilities were excellent and they included a heated indoor swimming pool, spa, function room where we had our pancake breakfast, camp kitchen for our happy hour every night, tennis court, indoor playroom for children, a shop where you could buy yummy coffee, also free WiFi.  We ate out most nights at Queenscliff, Clifton Springs and Barwon Heads,

 

 

 

One of our visits was to the “Fort Queenscliff Museum” Victoria’s Premier Coastal Fortress. Our friendly tour guide shared knowledge and answered all of our questions.  It was an opportunity to tour a 19th century Coastal Artillery fort which is an operating Australian Army base.  Amongst the fascinating artifacts and historical objects is the opportunity to try on uniforms from different moments in time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also went on a “Heritage Walk” to learn more about Queenscliff’s rich history and we enjoyed afternoon tea afterwards. We strolled through the town and admired the stately Victorian homes, majestic hotels, quaint shops and beautiful churches and we found out that many of these heritage listed buildings are now used for accommodation, award winning restaurants, gallaries and fashion boutiques.

As you can tell from the photos we all had a wonderful holiday.
