Barwon Heads was fist settled in 1875 and was a popular holiday destination for the surrounding area. It is located only 100 klms from Victoria's capital Melbourne and 26 klm from Geelong, Victoria’s largest provincial town.
Barwon Heads boasts a Marine Sanctuary on its doorstep at the mouth of the river and a State Game Reserve - Lake Connewarre. The Sanctuary includes the wrecks of two ships, situated on the outer part of the reef. One of these the Orungal, can be seen sticking out of the water to the north of the sanctuary.
