AN INTERESTING FACT - A little of our Heritage and History

The original Clifton Springs Hotel was located at or about this site wherein a Bowling Green had always been envisaged

Of historical significance is the well documented fact that adjacent to the Bowling Club site are the remains of the first Mineral Springs/Spa development on the Bellarine Peninsula which was established around 1870. Subsequently a Hotel was built together with many jetties to cater for the burgeoning tourist trade as well as water supply, produce and shell grit export. The Hotel burnt to the ground in 1921 and a second hotel replaced it in 1926. This was remodelled about 1957 to become The Clifton Springs Country Club. In 1977 the property was acquired by The Shire of Bellarine. It was later purchased by The Clifton Springs Golf Club and remodelled once again.

It is noteworthy that our Bowling Club now stands on the land once the site of the original hotel's staff quarters
