‘VILLAGE by the Sea’ Barwon Heads proudly proclaims itself.
The popular ABC series Seachange changed Barwon Heads from a sleepy hollow to a bustling, thriving town with all the amenities you could wish for, but it still managed to retain its village atmosphere in the process.
There are so many reasons to be in Barwon Heads. The kids will love the river beach next to the bridge, which is wave-free and safe. Surfers and wave seekers seek out Thirteenth Beach and you can try stand-up paddling at the river mouth.
Golfers have two world-class courses to choose from and fishing is popular off the bridge or at the river.
With a multitide of cafes and bars, the town caters for tourists, day trippers and locals. Boutiques line Hitchcock Avenue, but the town also has a bank, post office, primary school, child care, supermarket and a popular pub – the ‘BHP’.
With ample opportunities for walking, whether it be up to the Bluff or along the river or around the Village Park, humans and canines will love it. Check out the bollards that are displayed all around town.
The town boasts a proud sporting history, fielding Australian Rules football, cricket, tennis, bowls and soccer teams and there’s a thriving equestrian community.
Barwon Heads truly is a town for all to enjoy.
