Ocean Grove is in effect an outlying suburb of Geelong. Therefore there is no reason to visit. Now the largest town on the Peninsula is a bit of a disaster.
Methodists from America decided to spread their camps overseas, including to Australia. Following collaboration with the Victorian Methodists, an initial camp was set up near Point Lonsdale. By 1882 they needed to acquire a larger area, so they could establish their Australian Ocean Grove community.
The site chosen was on the eastern side of the mouth of the Barwon River overlooking Bass Strait.
In 1887, Charles James and James Grigg purchased, surveyed and subdivided land into 2,500 blocks bearing the covenant "no part of the above Land shall be used for the Manufacture or Sale of Malted Spirituous, or Vinous Liquors".
In 1927 the town was linked by the new bridge to Barwon Heads, an older and traditional community on the other side of the river.
There is no Museum.
Narrow streets, no footpaths and all new. Ocean Grove is a human environmental disaster. Fortunately Barwon Heads is at armís length to save the citizens.
