Welcome to Ocean Grove

Small town community, big city convenience.

Ocean Grove is dynamic seaside town with all the trimmings. Diverse retail, commercial and industrial precincts coupled with an abundance of community and recreational facilities making the most of the coast and the country – all just 20 minutes drive from Geelong.

The Bellarine is known for its spectacular food and wine, and Ocean Grove is no exception. Bustling restaurants, café’s, specialty shops and supermarkets covering the town make it superb for that lazy Sunday brunch, the big family get together, dinner on the go and everything in between.

Ocean Grove boasts the largest retail shopping precinct on the Peninsula, alongside updated sporting facilities including a indoor swimming complex, sporting ovals and numerous walking trails including the Ocean Grove Nature Reserve.

Situated on the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula at the mouth of the Barwon River – Ocean Grove is one of Victoria’s premier lifestyle and tourist settings. Just 20 minutes from the largest regional city in Victoria, and only 98km from Melbourne, come see for yourself what Ocean Grove has to offer.

Christmas in Ocean Grove

5pm to 8pm

The Ocean Grove Business Association with limited funds and a band of volunteers closes the main street to have a Christmas in the Grove to attract locals and tourists to the town. The dream is to make it a great community event with bands, buskers, entertainment and a giant street party.

artists, community groups in a celebration in a fun and inclusive way. The idea of having a giant table down The Terrace in Ocean Grove where all can sit and share food and drink and just enjoy the entertainment but also interact with each other has been a dream for some time. Too many local communities do not know their neighbours and this is hopefully a way to get as many involved as possible.

Come and join us for a great famil night with fun for the whole family.
