The History of Barwon Heads

We’ve listened to lots of fantastic presentations about the history of Barwon Heads for our Inquiry. Students in 3B have been researching and finding out lots of interesting information about our town. For example did you know that The Bluff used to be called Mount Coolite? Or that the Mount Coolite Coffee Palace burnt down in 1929 but was built again in 1935 and was called the Barwon Heads Hotel!

For this weeks blog I want you to tell us one thing you have learnt so far about Barwon Heads. I’m looking forward to hearing all about it!

    Hi 3B, I have really enjoyed listening to other people’s talks. One interesting fact that I have learnt is that mr G. Go lightly used to own the pub. I also didn’t know that the bluff used to be called mount colite. Chelsea

    I have learned a lot about the history of Barwon Heads. Such as Mt Coolite Hotel, Mt Coolite, the bluff
    and all the floods that have happened. It was great learning it all.
