The 3 Best Day Rides from Queenscliff

17th February 2017

The 3 Best Day Rides from BIG4 Beacon Resort,  Queenscliff

There are so many incredible rides around Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale that it is hard to pick our top 3 but we’ve asked around the BIG4 Beacon Resort office and the verdict is as follows!

Queenscliff to Barwon Heads Loop

The Queenscliff to Barwon Heads loop is a 42 kilometre road ride that will take you through some of the most spectacular scenery on the Bellarine Peninsula, including the stunning coastal views from the comfort of your bike that you will enjoy all the way from Ocean Grove to the Barwon Heads Bluff.

Queenscliff to Geelong via the Rail Trail

The Bellarine Rail Trail is a 35 kilometre trail that links Queenscliff to South Geelong (and the reverse naturally) following the alignment of the historical Geelong - Queenscliff Railway Line.

The trail is primarily constructed of compacted, crushed rock and provides a high quality surface suitable for all bikes other than those fitted with racing tyres. 

The trail is popular with weekend recreational cyclists as the 35km length one way makes for a decent ride with the added bonus of excellent views of the surrounding farmland and coast.

Queenscliff to Point Nepean (utilising Searoad Ferries)

The Queenscliff to Point Nepean bike ride is a 33km return journey and includes a return crossing with Searoad Ferries from the Bellarine Peninsula to the Mornington Peninsula.  The ride from Sorrento to Point Nepean is 22km return and takes in some of the most breathtaking scenery along the way.  Cycling is permitted in the Point Nepean Nature Reserve, Quarantine Station, along Defence Road (to Fort Pearce) and along Coles Track which is shared path. 

Of course, if you would just like to get out and about and enjoy the fresh air, you can always ride from Queenscliff to Point Lonsdale!  A leisurely 6km ride (each way) from Beacon.  How convenient!
