Queenscliff Harbour

The Queenscliff Harbour is a bustling hub on and off the water. It's easily accessible for foot passengers straight off the ferry, and there's plenty of parking for those travelling by car.

This modern shopping precinct is friendly and relaxed with a distinct nautical flavour. Wander past the exclusive boats and yachts tied up at the moorings, browse for homewares and fashionable clothing and footwear, or just indulge at the day spa or beauty salon.

You'll find many cafes and restaurants in the Harbour precinct – enjoy fresh seasonal food using local produce or simply enjoy a coffee or an ice-cream at one of the waterfront cafes. If you're lucky, you'll even see a few stingrays glide by!
