Brisbane Ranges National Park
Little more than an hour's drive from Melbourne takes you to the state's richest wildflower habitat. Set in a low range of mountains dissected by rocky gullies, the unusual geology of Brisbane Ranges National Park has preserved plants that have long since vanished from the region, together with a correspondingly diverse bird population and the greatest density of koalas in Victoria.

Queenscliff Dolphin Swims
Get to know the local marine life - take a charter around Port Phillip Bay. Visit Pope's Eye Gannett Rookery and snorkel the man made reef, play with the seals at the Chinaman's Hat and hopefully get a swim with the wild dolphins along the way.
Try your luck off the piers, on the beach or charter a boat - snapper, whiting, squid, trevally, flathead and more are frequently caught in the waters surrounding Queenscliff.
Queenscliff Historical Society
Located in the main street of Queenscliff, right next to the library but set back slightly it's really worth a look. For a small donation you can see photos of Queenscliff as it was when people took trips "down the bay" as well as heaps of relics and items from "the olden days" Run by helpful and generally friendly volunteers.
