Barwon Heads

Barwon Heads, situated along the southern coastline of the Bellarine Peninsula directly facing Bass Strait, is a seaside township in the state of Victoria. Nestled along the western bank and near the mouth of the Barwon River, which the residential area was named after, the community is located some 95 kilometres south-west of Melbourne, the state capital. It has an estimated population of 3,000 residents.

First settled in 1875, Barwon Heads is part of the Local Government Area of the City of Greater Geelong. The community is within the State District of South Barwon (in the Victorian Legislative Assembly) and the Federal Division of Corangamite (in the Australian House of Representatives). Neighbouring locales include Marshall, Ocean Grove, and Wallington.

Thanks to its exposure through the popular Australian television series, SeaChange, Barwon Heads today is a popular holiday destination. Its coastal attractions, which regularly draw people to the community, are the driving force of its tourism industry.

No visit to Barwon Heads will be complete without experiencing its culture or seeing its sights. One can start off with an appreciation for the community's natural heritage through a visit to the Barwon Bluff Marine Sanctuary, Jirrahlinga Koala and Wildlife Sanctuary, and Lake Connewarre Wildlife Reserve. To cap everything off, one can participate in the Festival of the Sea, an event that features local music and performances.
