Barwon Heads

Barwon Heads is located on the mouth of the Barwon River has a population of about 1300 permanent residents that swells to many times that around the Christmas holidays.
It has always been a holiday resort providing plenty of opportunities for relaxation.
Around 1880 the Mount Colite coffee palace was built providing the first accommodation in town, it burnt down in 1929 and later replaced with a licensed hotel that still stands.
Barwon Heads is a quiet, laid back little village, where people come to get away from the daily grind of city living. This is a lovely place to relax, maybe throw a line into the water, or just walk along the beach.

    A very nice page on a scenic part of Australia that I missed! I love coastal destinations like this! Your guess was right - the bonsai pot looks like an anti-shipping mine!
