The stress-free pace and casual atmosphere of Barwon Heads makes it the perfect holiday destination.
The Barwon River’s long and meandering course flows from the Otway ranges down to the village of Barwon Heads, where the wide river estuary meets Bass Strait. The picturesque river is used for many passive water-based activities right throughout the year.
The beaches along Barwon River offer safe swimming spots, making them popular with families. If you prefer waves, the ocean beaches boast some of the best surf in the region, especially at Thirteenth Beach.
