About the Borough of Queenscliffe
The Borough of Queenscliffe, old-worldly by name but future-focused by nature, encompasses both Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale.
The permanent population of around 3,000 takes advantage of well-planned streetscapes and infrastructure, including local schools, sports clubs, community and health care services, as well as a range of quality retail providers.
Commerce and recreation have coexisted in Queenscliff from the very early days and, while it is by no means the only industry, tourism is an integral part of the local economy. The area's transient population of holiday-makers has helped shape the culture of Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale, with generations of 'semi-permanents' returning regularly.
One of the most striking contrasts of the area is between old and new. The rich historical character of Queenscliff, with its grand old buildings, is set off by a vibrant and contemporary cultural scene. Stately Victorian façades conceal a range of contemporary art galleries and award winning restaurants. Heritage buildings house new age provedores and ice-creameries.
Modern architecture, such as the Queenscliff Harbour precinct, is the new expression of a traditional maritime theme, combining steel angles and extensive glazing with solid timber reminiscent of the old piers. It provides a unique dining, retail and community space.
The list of things to do in Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale is virtually endless – wineries, historical walks, fishing, diving, golf, exploring marine National Parks and visiting the popular boutique markets with fresh local produce and crafts.
The Borough of Queenscliffe is a true gem. It is a place not to be missed by visitors and eminently worthy of considering home for those who aspire to regional living characterised by contrasts of the old and the contemporary, industry and recreation, nature and culture.
