Queenscliff – Part 3

This is the third and final part of  my mini series of photos on Queenscliff – a unique Victorian town where I had most of my high school education. Being surrounded by the sea it is obvious why Queenscliff has so many maritime connections.  The ferries and the fishing are just two. The pilot boats which service the Port Philip heads are based there, and there is a museum which celebrates its connections with the sea, as well as a Marine Discovery centre.  Boat building and restoration is also part of its history.  Like many towns it has had to cope with the “development” of the C21st.  However, from my brief visits it seems to have successfully resisted these better than most and its unique character shines through.
