Welcome to Barwon Heads
At the mouth of the broad Barwon River, Barwon Heads is a haven of sheltered beaches, tidal river flats and holidaymakers. It was made famous as the setting for SeaChange, a popular TV series, and, over a decade on, still trades on the kudos. In a case of life imitating TV, the original bridge linking Barwon Heads with Ocean Grove was controversially recently replaced with two modern bridges.
Feisty Thirteenth Beach, 2km west, is popular with surfers. There are short walks around the headland and the Bluff with panoramic sea vistas.
