What’s ON in April / May

The Regional World’s Longest Lunch was held on the board walk at Queenscliff Harbour on Friday 16th March 2018.

It was an early start as marquees were erected, the tables and chairs set up and a throng of wait staff descended upon 63 metres of tables to be set.

The weather was amazing, the food was delicious, the service was great, and the company was first class.

185 people came and joined us at the Harbour for a day of celebration with communities local and afar coming together to share what we all love – local food and wine beside the sea.

Inspiring events at Business Hub at Queenscliff Marina

The Business Hub at Queenscliff Marina is kicking off its monthly series of events for founders, entrepreneurs and small business owners on Thursday 26 April with three seminars.

The Collabd Events will also include an in-conversation event with a successful local business owner who will share their journey and experience and offer practical advice.

On April 26 the Hub welcomes Barry Iddles, chef and owner of iconic 360Q restaurant at Queenscliff Harbour to share the secrets of his success across the catering and hospitality industry (and chat about the celebrities he has catered for!).

Fishermans Wharf  

At long last it looks as if Queenscliff Harbour will finally be able to begin the much-needed works at Fishermans Wharf. Queenscliff Harbour presented a planning application to the Borough of Queenscliffe in November last year that would see the refurbishment of the Fishermans Wharf and Locke/Cayzer’s Slipway, together with landscaping of adjoining Fishermans Wharf area and construction of a series of interpretive kiosks along the length of the Harbour waterfront. These works will substantially enhance the functionality and amenity of Fishermans Wharf, benefitting both the local community and visitors to Queenscliff. The main elements of the proposal are refurbishment of Locke/Cayzer slipway, reinstatement of the wharf and the addition of the interpretive tourism trail.

The proposed works to the slipway involve the reconstruction of the failed walls and the construction of a timber decking canoe/kayak launching area within the existing slipway cutting. The works will ensure the retention of the overall form of Locke/Cayzer’s Slipway as well as utilising the original area for the historical function of launching small watercraft. Boat launching in the slipway will be limited to small non-powered watercraft such as kayaks and canoes.


The existing wharf wall is in a highly dilapidated condition. It is unsafe and is currently fenced off from public access. It is proposed to replace and reconstruct the failed wharf wall along its entire length, from Cayzer’s Slipway to the dinghy basin. The reinstatement comprises the construction of approximately 152 metres of sheetpile wall capped in timber and reinforced with a concrete tieback system.

The finished surface of the reinstated wharf will be deck slab concrete to match existing surfaces within the harbour, while the general area leading back to the roadway will be landscaped and include a shared pathway adjoining the Harbour pedestrian system to the Bellarine Rail Trail.


Following careful consideration of community feedback, Queenscliff Harbour proposed to create a new interpretive tourism trail along the Harbour waterfront. The trail will comprise up to six interpretive stations or ‘kiosks’ along the waterfront, each incorporating multimedia or interactive elements (such as periscopes for underwater viewing, telescopes or touch screen displays), as well as a number of more simple installations that communicate various stories of the Queenscliff Harbour. Queenscliff Harbour Pty Ltd have appointed Acumen Design to research, design and oversee the installation of the interpretive tourism trail. Acumen Design have substantial experience in the design of museum and visitor facilities, including the original creation (and current redevelopment) of the Flagstaff Hill Discovery Centre in Warrnambool.

It is hoped that construction will begin by the middle of this year and completed within a six month time frame.
