Queenscliff – Part 1

I spent 5 years of my life travelling to Queenscliff every school day – from Form 1 to Form 5. To be honest, I didn’t take too much notice of the town.  Afterall, it was the site of my compulsory incarceration. There was an Army Staff College situated in a C19th fort and a fishing fleet, which made it distinctly different to the town I came from. However, this year I have gone to the town on variety of occasions. Our Year 12 retreat was held there, my wife and I did one of our extended walks nearby, we have taken friends there for a meal and we have passed through using the ferry that goes from Queenscliff to Sorrento. This has given me an opportunity to take a variety of photos. This in turn has opened my eyes to the uniqueness of this Victorian town. Queenscliff is a small borough but it packs in a lot of history – especially by Australian standards.
