Ocean Grove Holiday Park

A peaceful, pretty park in arguably the best town on the Bellarine Peninsula, Ocean Grove Holiday Park
gets my vote as a top place to stay - and stay I have. I've stayed at OGHP for as long as I can remember for the annual Queenscliff Music Festival
, which I pop, and bop, along to each sunny November. [BREAK]
The park's location works really well. While a relatively short, picturesque drive to the music and merriment of the festival, the park offers the best of both worlds: a quieter location with a great shopping village, all the conveniences, and a stunning beach (and I mean stunning!) and more affordable accommodation than you can get within coo wee of Queenscliff during festival time. It's not only expensive, it's also near nigh impossible to get unless you book months, or even a year, in advance.
The drive is no problem for me. For those who like to have a drink or two, there's a convenient shuttle bus from the heart of Ocean Grove to the festival's doorstep.
Like I said, Ocean Grove beach is a real beauty. I often find myself losing track of time and walking its breathtaking shore for hours.
Between that and the solar heated pool and spa room
back at the park, I can flit between music festival fun and lounging back and simply relaxing.
While it's a real treat at the business end of the year, Ocean Grove is spectacular any time of year. The kids can go a little nuts at local theme parks
, while adults can enjoy the region's local produce, wineries
I can personally recommend The Olive Pit for brekkie, lunch or something in between. Take a look at what they call their Everyday Menu
. I'm not sure about you, but the likes of this don't feature in my every day. As for their New York bagel (on the Breakfast Menu
) with Istra bacon, avocado, caramelised onion and dill cream cheese, make a point of it and make room. Yum.
While the friendly atmosphere in town is warm and welcoming, so too is the team at Ocean Grove Holiday Park. They've always been helpful and accommodating. The cabins I've stayed in have been spacious, modern, super clean and comfy. Accommodation
ranges from grassed camping sites to villa deluxe accommodation for families.
Whether you need a music fix or a little holiday fix, OGHP is an easy 90-minute drive from Melbourne's CBD, making it a great weekender, mid-weeker or even longer if you can swing it!
