Take a break and get some sun in Ocean Grove, a popular surf town surrounded by renowned wineries, pristine beaches and golf courses. Hit the ocean waves, build a sandcastle with the kids, or use the town as a base to explore the countless natural and contemporary attractions across the region.
Here comes the sun
Explore the unbroken stretch of sand that reaches out to the mouth of the Barwon River. Wander along the beautiful, wide surf beach or sign up for surfing and bodyboarding lessons. For a slow, relaxing afternoon, take a stroll in the flourishing nature reserve or pick up local art pieces and gourmet produce in the vibrant shopping district.
Refuel after a big day out on the water with a bite at one of the town's popular eateries, burger joints or cafes. Head to nearby Oakdene Vineyard restaurant for some of the best cuisine on the peninsula and try out Mr Grubb, the onsite cafe with a family vibe.
Looking for somewhere to keep the kids entertained? Head to nearby Wallington and spend the day on Adventure Park's rides and waterslides or play a round of minigolf at A Maze 'n Games.
