Join us as we recount their latest escapade, complete with a walk to the iconic Bluff, a visit to the enchanting 13th Beach, and an exciting drone adventure by the Barwon Heads River Bridge.

A Familiar Journey to Coastal Bliss:

The sun was high and the excitement palpable as we set off on our familiar journey to the coastal haven of Barwon Heads. We embarked on a scenic drive that would lead us to our much-loved destination. Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove, nestled on the breathtaking shores of the Bellarine Peninsula, have become a sanctuary where the family can disconnect from the digital world and immerse themselves in the serenity of nature.

Exploring the Barwon Heads Bluff:

One of the highlights of our trip was the invigorating walk up to the Barwon Heads Bluff. Isaac, with his adventurous spirit, led the way, while Anisah eagerly followed suit. The trail, winding through native coastal vegetation, offered glimpses of the shimmering ocean and the charming town below. As we reached the summit, the panoramic view took our breath away – the vast expanse of blue meeting the endless horizon.

As the family soaked in the beauty of the coastline, Isaac and Anisah’s faces lit up with excitement. The bond between siblings was evident as they shared laughs, stories, and whispered secrets against the backdrop of nature’s magnificence. It was a reminder that the simple act of exploration can create memories that endure far beyond the trip itself.

A Day of Surf and Sand at 13th Beach:

The adventure continued as we continued our way to the famed 13th Beach. With its rolling waves and expansive shoreline, the beach is a favorite spot for surfing enthusiasts and families alike. Isaac and Anisah wasted no time in building sandcastles, splashing in the waves, and chasing seagulls along the shore.

The drone’s Eye View: Barwon Heads River Bridge:

Embracing technology as an integral part of our adventure, we unpacked our trusty drone near the iconic Barwon Heads River Bridge. With Isaac’s skilled piloting and Anisah’s artistic direction, the drone took to the sky, capturing breathtaking shots of the river, the charming bridge, and the coastal landscape that stretched beyond. We huddled around the drone’s live feed, marveling at the unique perspective that only a drone could provide.


As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a warm golden glow across the coastal landscape, we reflected on our day of exploration and connection. Our journey to Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove was not just a simple trip; it was a testament to the power of nature, family bonds, and shared experiences. We returned home with hearts full of cherished memories, reminding us all that the most meaningful adventures are often found in the embrace of nature and the company of loved ones.
