Need accommodation for the Queenscliff Music Festival?
The township of Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria is home to the Queenscliff Music Festival. Recognised as one of “Tourism Victoria’s” honoured Hall of Fame inductees. It was also nominated as an official Regional Victorian Hallmark Event, and rose to national prominence after being awarded ‘Most Significant Festival and Event’ by Australian Tourism.
Queenscliff is a former 1880’s seaside resort, which is now extremely well known for its Victorian heritage and historical buildings. Located at the entrance of Port Phillip Bay, Queenscliff became an important cargo port in 1841 servicing ships trading in Port Phillip.
Queenscliff has played a large and important military role with Fort Queenscliff being built between 1879 and 1889. Operating as the command centre for a network of forts around the Port.
Queenscliff is a mecca for tourist attractions including its 3 museums, the Queenscliff Historical Museum, the Fort Queenscliff Museum and the Queenscliff Martitime museum.
On the 27th of November 2015 Queenscliff will again, for the 19th year, boost its population of 1416 into the thousands for this spectacular 3 day Music event.
Like all previous festivals, there is a massive lineup for the 2015 Festival. Angus & Julia Stone, 19-Twenty, Benny Walker, John Williamson, Hey Frankie, Hoodoo Gurus, Kate Miller-Heidke and Paul Dempsey to name just a few.
