Barwon Heads is Famous..
The Mini Series.. "Seachange" screened on the ABC. was filmed in Barwon Heads.
A piece from a Newsclip...
THE ABC Television Drama Unit has officially confirmed that segments of a television mini series will be filmed in Barwon Heads over a five month period beginning in November.
Filming will take place at the fishermen's pier, caravan park, the bridge, river and coastal beach.
The name of the series has been changed from Tropical Fever to Sea Change and the fictitious town, Mona Bay, has become Pearl Bay. Tropical Fever was used as a working title when it was originally planned to film the series at Byron Bay. A key element of Sea Change is that the bridge connecting Pearl Bay to the nearby fictitious Port Deakin has been condemned.
Barwon Heads was selected because of the type of bridge and location. While filming at fishermen's pier, the bridge will be visible in the background. Because the script tells of a bridge that is condemned, directors require a traffic free bridge. The story revolves around big city lawyer Laura Gibson and her two children Miranda 16 and Rupert 12. With her life in tatters in the city Laura returns to Pearl Bay with her children to where, ten years ago, she spent one of the happiest holidays of her life. But Pearl Bay has changed. Laura accepts the job of town magistrate and through the sad, funny, petty and sometimes extraordinary cases Laura presides over, she discovers an idiosyncratic town of divided loyalties, old secrets and bizarre conspiracies.

Barwon Heads is located on the mouth of the Barwon River has a population of about 1300 permanent residents that swells to many times that around the Christmas holidays.
It has always been a holiday resort providing plenty of opportunities for relaxation.
Around 1880 the Mount Colite coffee palace was built providing the first accommodation in town, it burnt down in 1929 and later replaced with a licensed hotel that still stands.
Barwon Heads is a quiet, laid back little village, where people come to get away from the daily grind of city living. This is a lovely place to relax, maybe throw a line into the water, or just walk along the beach.
