The Queenscliff Music Festival is once again returning to the Bellarine Peninsula this November. The festival has been running since 1997, treating music-lovers to an intimate festival experience and seaside views.
This year’s line-up includes The Beautiful Girls, Bernard Fanning, The Tesky Brothers, Nai Palm and The Temper Trap.
If you’re heading to Queenscliff in late November, make sure you book your festival tickets early and check out some cheap car hire deals from Melbourne Airport. Travel an hour and a half west of Melbourne and consider staying at one of these great venues.
Travellers consistently rate this accommodation as one of the best in Queenscliff. One of the most beautiful rooms is the Turret Suite, with stunning 180 degree seaside views. There’s also the Traditional Rooms, which take you back in time to the 19th century, when this extraordinary building first became a landmark.

Here, you are spoiled for choice. Whether you want to park your caravan, pitch a tent or stay in a spacious cabin, you’ll find accommodation to suit any budget. There is also a pool, gym, tennis court and day spa onsite.
Swan Bay Holiday Park
On the shore of beautiful Swan Bay at Queenscliff is this lovely holiday park. Choose from powered or unpowered sites, or even pretty cabins. There’s a walking track close to the holiday park too. Right near your accommodation is a boat ramp and jetty, which is perfect if you want to have a go at fishing so you can wind down after the music festival.
Here’s another place to stay where you can admire historic architecture. Seaview House’s history dates back to 1875 and continues to charm visitors with its traditional guesthouse atmosphere to this very day. Seaview House is also set in a perfect location – close to shops, the local maritime museum and other local tourist attractions.
