Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Barwon Heads, Victoria, Australia your home away from home

Barwon Heads is a pleasant town of around 3,000 inhabitants on the Bellarine Peninsula near Geelong. It was initially a small fishing village which became popular as a holiday resort in the 1920s and many houses date back to that period.

Things to Do in Barwon Heads, Victoria

Thirteenth Beach at Barwon Heads is popular for surfing and got its name due to its proximity to the 13th hole of the local golf course. Take a stroll around the town and admire the soldier and parrot-shaped bollards which local artist Jan Mitchell created. They line the route between the local primary school and the park and playground and add character to this unique seaside town. There are plenty of opportunities to take a boat trip, go fishing, scuba diving or swimming from one of the local beaches. A day trip to Melbourne will allow you to take a hot air balloon ride over the city, stroll the botanical gardens or cycle along the Yarra River. Golf, boating, sea kayaking and tennis are all available from your Barwon Heads holiday apartment or villa rental.
