You call it shopping; I call it therapy. Queenscliff & Point Lonsdale

You call it shopping; I call it therapy. Queenscliff & Point Lonsdale

Where do I start? Well the good news is that there are a couple of different areas that you can go shopping in this region. So strap on your comfy shoes and let's go!

The Queenscliff Harbour is the perfect place to start your retail journey.
It's easily accessible for foot passengers straight off the Ferry and there's plenty of parking for those travelling by car.

One of my fav spots is House Warming. After soaking in the beauty and colours around, you feel like you could be a contestant on an interior decorating reality show. Take your time along the harbour soaking in the views while you shop. Of course shopping comes with a good coffee stop, so pop into Charlie Noble for your first caffeine fix.

Oh, PS: If you are in town for a couple of days, head upstairs to the Queenscliff Day Spa to book in a foot massage, you'll need it after your shopping spree.



The Queenscliff precinct around Hesse Street retains the charm of yesteryear, with classic facades and wide verandas. However, behind the heritage facades you'll come across exclusive labels, unique finds and modern gifts and home wares. This is going to take some time, so if you have kids or hubby in tow, send them off for a run in the park and ice-cream.

You'll also find bookshops, provedores, surf wear, vintage and more. There are some lovely unique places for Australian made wares, amazing galleries for art and locally made foodie products.

My fav stops up the main street are; Home Body Orchard for gifts and pampering products and then I stock up at Saltbush Fine Foods and Farm Foods for yummy treats to take home.

Don't worry I haven't forgotten the coffee stop. Belsize & Co is the must stop place for your next caffeine stop. Look out for the umbrellas out the front.



Drop your bags off after Queenscliff and make your way to Point Lonsdale.

Here you have the unique experience of shopping with an ocean breeze. Whether you're looking for a new outfit, special gift or the daily essentials, you will be surprised what you can find in this quaint coastal town. And as for your coffee stop, well I suggest it's time for wine. Noble Rot is situated at the very end of the street so make this your final destination and cheers to your new purchases.
