Things to do in and around Barwon Heads
Get energetic and pushbike the Bellarine peninsula or Great Ocean Road. Trust us, you will not be alone You must break the ride though with multiple stops at the many cafes along the way.
Catch some waves on the local beaches or day trip to Toruay, JanJuc or Lorne. There is some great surf to be found and great facilities along the coast for surfers.
Fishing is fun in Barwon heads because you have so many options. Walk to the river and use the boardwalk to cast a line for Bream or walk to the beach on the river and try for Salmon or whiting. There is a jetty right in town that runs hot with salmon trout at different times of the day. Of course, if you have a boat you can travel upstream on the Barwon River or head for the River Mouth and out to sea.
Barwon heads has a lively Pub with great Parma night meals and live music during Summer.. There are many restaurants and coffee shops, pop-up ice-cream stores and naturally the best "Fish and Chips" on the coast are found right in the Main Street.
Golf is a must at the 13th Beach Golf course ranked 29 in Australia's top 100 golf courses. Not bad for a sleepy seaside town
Barwon Heads starred as the "Seachange" town in the 90's and began a surge towards getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. As Barwon heads has tight growth boundaries it has retained that small town feel. Walk to the shops in the morning for a paper and milk and you will know what I mean.
There is a skate park, many playgrounds and safe bike tracks in the parks.
At low tide the rock pools provide loads of fun for kids and adults exploring the foreshore.
