Queenscliff – Part 2

One of the joys of Queenscliff is the water.  It is virtually surrounded by water. There is Swan Bay on one side and Port Philip Bay and the Port Philip Heads on the other two sides. A narrow neck of land connects it with Point Lonsdale.  Swan Bay is a shallow bay with extensive bird life.  On the ocean side the water is deeper and rougher – particularly near the Port Philip Heads.

Coming into Queenscliff on the ferry is quite delightful as you see the town from another angle. In this photo we see the Black Lighthouse and the old wooden lighthouse in the grounds of the fort.

The tourist train steams past the site of the my old high school (no longer extant) with Swan Bay in the background.
