Relaxing in Queenscliff

26 May 2012 | Queenscliff
Friday's weather was horrific to say the least, extreme winds and very heavy rain stopped us from moving to the Marina.

We made ourselves comfortable at the Queenscliff Cruising Club which is located in Sand Island and decided to stay here till approx Monday.

We went into town for a few hours on Saturday and then in the afternoon we were joined by a 48' yacht Aqua Cadabra from Brighton, an ejoyable evening was had by all.

Today Sunday we are just relaxing and ensuring everything is ready for Mondays departure.

Queenscliff History

Queenscliff is a small town on the Bellarine Peninsula in southern Victoria, Australia, south of Swan Bay at the entrance to Port Phillip.

European explorers first arrived in 1802, Lieutenant John Murray in January and Captain Matthew Flinders in April.

Permanent settlement began in 1836. Land sales began in 1853, the same year the name was changed to Queenscliff by Lieutenant Charles La Trobe, in honour of Queen Victoria.

Originally a fishing village, Queenscliff soon became an important cargo port, servicing steamships trading in Port Philip. A shipping pilot service was established in 1841, and its two lighthouses, the High and Low Lights, were constructed in 1862-63

Extra: Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do then by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the Dream. Discover. -- Mark Twain -- Living the dream and sailing into the sunset
