Queenscliff Golf Club

Swan Island, Queenscliff VIC 3225

Queenscliff Golf Club provides a unique Island setting with fresh air, natural beauty and tranquillity. A friendly vibrant Golf Club surrounded by natural habitat. The beauty of the course is not lost on the golfers, as it changes with the time of day and the change of seasons. The big advantage of having a course built on an Island made up of drifting sand, is that the course is a true all weather course. Regardless of heavy rain, you'd need to step into Swan Bay or a water hazard to get your feet wet. The tranquillity is only disturbed by the train whistle from the Bellarine Steam Train and local birdlife. Significant birds found on the Island include the Orange Bellied Parrot, the Royal Spoonbill, Magpies, Plovers, Swans and Pelicans.

The Blues Train

Departs from Queenscliff Railway Station, Queenscliff VIC 3225

Victoria's historic coastal town of Queenscliff is home to the world's one and only Blues Train. It is a unique experience that combines four of Australia's best live acts and the beautiful scenery of the Bellarine Peninsula on the Drysdale Railway line while aboard a real moving vintage steam train. It is one of Australia's most spectacular entertainment experiences - it is a mini festival in one night and a progressive party you'll never forget. Nothing captures the spirit of the blues quite like a steam train. Listening to the train whistle and the clickety-clack on the tracks you can imagine the old blues masters jamming it up on Mississippi freight trains as they were 'ridin' the blinds' around America's deep south. The Blues Train leaves Queenscliff Railway Station after guests have enjoyed a delicious meal complemented by fine Australian and local wines. The steam train then makes its way along 16 kilometres of track, gently rocking from side to side, seemingly in beat with the music. At each of the stops, Suma Park and Drysdale, revellers swap carriages to see another of the acts, so by the end of the night patrons have seen all four acts performing on the train. Drinks are available from the mobile bar that miraculously appears on each platform (from the converted guard's van). You can sit back, relax and listen to the music with a drinking on one of the seated carriages or get up and boogie the blues away in one of the dance carriages. Please visit the website for the different show dates.
