The Bellarine Rail Trail extends from Queenscliff to South Geelong. The section through Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale follows the foreshore of Swan Bay – a recognised wetland of international significance. Swan Bay is home to thousands of migratory birds, diverse marine life and extensive native coastal vegetation.
It's a lovely bike ride along the water's edge and through the Narrows – the thin strip of land connecting Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff. Note that one small section of the trail is on the road (along Murray Road). Deviate at the pedestrian lights to connect to the Point Lonsdale Promenade. It's 5.5km from the Queenscliff Railway Station to Point Lonsdale Village.
