The Pier and Lifeboat Complex
Historically steeped in marine activity, the Queenscliff Pier and Lifeboat Complex ticks lots of Instagram boxes. Dating back to around 1884, the structures, materials and atmosphere of this complex make for a perfect mix of historical intrigue and visual excellence.
Fort Queenscliff will immerse you in Australia’s rich military history and afford you the opportunity to capture some truly magnificent pictures. The Fort served as an integral defence line around the coast right through from colonial times to the end of the Second World War. Take a guided tour of the meticulously restored grounds and buildings for inspiration.
Boats docking as the sun sets, a 42-metre observation tower that offers 360-degree vistas across the coastal expanse, shops, cafés, restaurants and so much more. You get the picture right? Then take it at Queenscliff Harbour. From landscapes to foodie fare to sundrenched selfies, there is so much to fill up your Insta feed at the Harbour.
Take your camera out to sea and snap some spectacular shots. Queenscliff is located south of Swan Bay, at the entrance to Port Phillip, which means fabulous marine life. And who better to guide you through this water wonderland then experts in the field, Sea All Dolphin Swims. Not only are cameras/phones welcome onboard but they also offer waterproof GoPro camera hire. Under the sea, under the sea...
Take your pick (or should we say pic) on the rails and travel the spectacular scenic line of the Bellarine Railway. Capture the fun and frivolity of a heritage train ride in the family-favourite activity provided by Bellarine Railway. Get a rocking good picture during the music festivities of The Blues Train. Or lift your camera high and snap the most delectable of foodie pictures on the dining delight, The Q Train.
