Anyone who has booked flights to Australia should consider spending some time in Queenscliff, one travel writer has asserted.

There are several reasons that travellers arriving on cheap flights to Australia should visit the Victorian town of Queenscliff, one journalist has claimed.Steven Carroll wrote in the Daily Telegraph that the small town, which is about 90 minutes outside of Melbourne, is “a place that time forgot – 19th century appearance with an early 60s atmosphere”.

Anyone who decides to explore the seaside town should make sure that they check out some of the shops on its main street.

He particularly advised paying a visit to the local museum and the Barwon Bookshop, which he described as “suitably musty”.

Another must-see attraction for first-time visitors is Fort Queenscliff, Mr Carroll stated. Although it is still a functioning army base, there are tours for travellers three times per day, he informed.

Those taking holidays to Australia with their children in July and August may find that the kids programme being run by the Marine Discovery Centre in Queenscliff could keep the little ones occupied.

Among the scheduled activities are canoeing trips, rockpool rambles and craft sessions.
