Queens Birthday Weekend 2016


Visitors to the Bellarine over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend (11 and 12 June), will delight in the Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale Sidewalk Fair.

With three unique precincts offering shopping, food and music throughout Hesse Street, the Harbour and Point Lonsdale, this inaugural event has local traders rolling out the red carpet to treat residents and visitors alike to a vibrant and entertaining day out.

Together with live street music and Melbourne based entertainers ‘Snorkelarama’, the streets will be alive with colour and festivity, a treasure trove of sidewalk tables boasting quality wares from independent retailers, art, clothing, homewares and of course a trail of cafes and restaurants.

You can enjoy the sounds of Stephen McEwan & Co at Queenscliff Harbour FREE Saturday 10:30am till 12:30pm & Sunday 11am – 1pm

The Sidewalk Fair is a Borough of Queenscliffe initiative, residents and visitors to the Borough are invited to bring their families and take time to explore, shop, indulge and enjoy.

Other activities planned across the weekend include kite flying demonstrations to be held at the Queenscliff Recreation Reserve and Point Lonsdale oval with kids encouraged to bring their own kite to join in the fun. For the green thumbs, members of the Swan Bay Environment Association will be holding a pop up indigenous plant sale in Field Park and the Point Lonsdale Primary School market will be held on the Sunday at 9.00am.

Queenscliff Boat Hire is also offering a special minimum 2hr boat hire for those wanting WATER not Retail therapy on both days (call 5258 5459 to book)
