    My son Davey spent 2 very memorable hours with Cobber on 21st Jan 24. Cobber was fantastic in engaging his students and getting them feeling comfortable quickly. He was crystal clear in his instructions and explained things very well at a volume that could be easily heard...even on a very windy day. His overview on safety considerations was very detailed and on point. Loved the way he used the beach sand as a visual aid to capture the attention of his students and confirmed understanding by using allot of open ended questions. Cobber was an extremely engaged easy going instructor who had a smile on his face the entire time. He appear to love what he did. He had a great attitude and a real talent in getting the best out of his students. With that being said Davey was standing up on the board within 20 of getting into the water. Would certainly recommend. Please pass on my feedback to Cobber cheers Shane

    Ocean Grove Dog Beach is a great place to let your pup run free. The beach is located in the town of Ocean Grove, Victoria, Australia, and it is open to dogs all year round. The beach is divided into two sections, one for dogs on leash and one for dogs off leash.

    The off-leash section of the beach is a great place for dogs to run and play. The sand is soft and there are plenty of waves to chase. There are also a few rocks and other obstacles that dogs can explore.

    The beach is also a great place for people to relax and enjoy the sun. There are a few picnic tables and benches on the beach, and there is also a cafe nearby.

    This was our 1st guided coach tour with Christians, and our experience was better than we expected. Georgie, our guide, and Anita, our driver, were excellent hosts and made the trip so pleasant and enjoyable by ensuring we had opportunities to interact with fellow travellers and at sites and places we visited. We will be returning travellers to Christians Tours in the future.

    This area is largely unspoiled, it's bushland and foreshore. Buckley Park Foreshore Reserve is a good place to walk along the beach or paddle in the water. It's somewhere in Ocean Grove where you can get away from the crowds. It's also a favorite place for kite-surfers. It's fun to watch the kite-surfers as they twist and turn on the air currents.

    Good to eventually get out for a meal in these lockdown times and even better to score a perfectly cooked steak. Nothing fancy but definately not disappointed. I will be back to try some of the other menu offerings.

    The Hive Gallery has an eclectic range of artworks, from bronze bird baths featuring native animals and birds to paintings. The paintings include seascapes and other representational works. The gallery is well worth spending some time in, it is tucked away in an industrial estate in Ocean Grove.

    My 12 & 10 year boys did a Surn lesson and just loved it! The instructors were so patient and really connected with the kids. Both boys could stand by the end of it! Highly recommend them.

    This new shopping center is the retail hub of Ocean Grove, a prosperous new suburb south of Geelong. The center has a well-stocked Woolworths supermarket and a variety of specialty shops, including a large butchery. There are also several restaurants, and an Aldi outlet. When we visited to do some weekend shopping, the center was booming.

    I visited with a couple of friends and a bunch of kids. The kids (all aged 7 and under) had an absolute ball. This place is super-clean, one of the best play centres I have seen. We sat and enjoyed a relaxing cuppa whilst the kids played... and played... and played.. and played. It was such a great idea. Whilst my kids are a little older than this now, I will definitely come back when I have friends with young kids visiting.

    Collendina Beach is a long beach, it runs from Point Lonsdale to Ocean Grove Main Beach, it is around 6 km (4 miles) long. It takes in the open bay in this area. The main public access is via Collendina Beach car park. The beach can be treacherous, so unless you are an experienced swimmer, it's advisable to stay close to the shore; paddling is fine. The beach, under the right conditions, is excellent for surfing and fishing. By the way, Collendina Beach is popular with dog owners.

    Moderately maintained play space.
    Disappointed that there are no Public Toilet facilities at this park. Have to walk into town.

    This playground is a good facility for local families. It has a range of playground equipment, including slides, swings and some moderately challenging climbs. The lake has aquatic birds, including ducks. Please, don't feed the birds bread, it is bad for their digestion. The only drawback is that there are no BBQs or toilets. Airlies Playspace is is suitable for local families with younger children.

    Pinch Salt & Float is amazing. Leah was very welcoming and tended to our needs in a professional manner.
    We done the salt room , infrared Sauna and Salt float.
    All 3 were so relaxing and felt rejuvenated after the session.
    We would definitely go back and will recommend to everyone we know.
