    A laid-back shore that's mellow for most of the year

    Venture off the beaten path for a relaxing beach break on the Bellarine Peninsula in southern Australia. Ocean Grove is a quaint seaside village overlooking the Bass Strait, and its twin town Barwon Heads is a quick zip across the Barwon River. Decompress on quiet beaches, explore rolling sand dunes and wetlands, and ride some great surfing waves. For most of the year, this is a sleepy town, but during the summer and holiday breaks in December, this coast gets busy. Many Ocean Grove vacation rentals are near sandy shorelines, cute coastal cafes and quirky shops.

    Unwind in the river and dive around a sunken warship

    Need a little retail therapy? Ocean Grove has a big ol' shopping centre – the biggest on the Bellarine Peninsula – that's just a few blocks from the beach. The beach itself is a popular place to surf, and the nearby Barwon River offers prime swimming, boating and fishing spots. Divers will enjoying exploring the kelp forests and scallop beds around the sunken warship HMAS Canberra. And if you're booking Ocean Grove vacation rentals in November, the Toast to the Coast festival is a tasty and fun way to sample tasty local food and wines.

    Contemplate life in tranquil nature preserves

    Little ones can play the day away at Adventure Park Geelong, which has water slides, rides, a kids' train and mini golf. Adults can hit the greens at Ocean Grove Golf Club, and you'll find more sports at the Bellarine Aquatic and Sports Centre. There's an enormous pool, a gym, a stadium and outdoor recreation areas, including 2 tennis courts. But the real treats here are the secluded, unspoiled wildlife areas. Bring your binoculars and birdwatch for hours in Begola Wetlands, or wander the walkways of Ocean Grove Nature Reserve and the Lake Connewarre Wildlife Reserve.

    An idyllic destination to idle away the summer days

    The vibe's considerably different in the summer months, when the influx of visitors livens up the town and the beaches. If you love to join those fun-seeking crowds, December to February are great but busy months for Ocean Grove vacation rentals. Temperatures are in the lower to mid 20s and there's not much rain, making it the perfect time to explore all those picturesque wildlife areas. The shallow sandy shores are swimmable, but the water can get chilly, and always mind the rip tides. May is the rainiest month, and throughout winter, temps are in the lower teens.

    Escape the city to a destination bursting with biodiversity

    Tired of sidewalks and craving a bit of biodiversity? Ocean Grove is a fascinating ecosystem on the Barwon Bluff Marine Sanctuary, where the Barwon River meets the ocean. Hundreds of birds nest and rest here, and in the tidal pools you can search for crabs, coral, mollusks and starfish. The seascape around Ocean Grove vacation rentals is also pretty sweet. This coastline is about a dozen kilometres north of 'The Rip', a notorious passageway into Port Phillip Bay and Melbourne that's one of Australia's most treacherous stretches of ocean. Still, people swim it all the time.
