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.

I booked this house through Golf Retreats Victoria. They were quick to respond to all enquiries (unlike so many other places I tried!), helpful, friendly and sent cute SMS/e-mail reminders. The house was comfortable, clean and appeared as described. Also nice and close to the beach. Thank you so much I really did have a great stay, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to have a beach getaway with a bigger group of people.
