Introduction

The club house of the Western Beach Boat Club was originally situated at Eastern Beach and opened in 1879, it was the original headquarters of the Corio Bay Rowing Club.  Some years later, the rowing club moved the building to the banks of the Barwon River, where it continued serving its members as club rooms and storage for their rowing boats.

In 1927, the rowing club again relocated the building back to its present location, finally in 1967, they  decided on establishing themselves on the Barwon River, leaving the building for their neighbours, the Western Beach Boat Club.On the 1st of May, 1955, the Western Beach Boat Club was originally formed, and since its inception, has provided a happy, healthy place of rest and relaxation for sailors and fishermen alike.

November, 2007 saw the members of the Western Beach Boat Club initiate the restoration of the club rooms, and through the determined, dedication of its members, the club rooms have now been restored to its former glory.

Located on the picturesque southwestern shores of Corio Bay in Geelong, Victoria, we are ideally  situated within a five minute walk of the Geelong CBD,Restauraunts on Cunningham Pier and along the waterfront, Deakin University, Geelong Woolstores Campus, Steampacket Place and the National Wool Museum.
