Suburb Overview

Ocean Grove is a seaside town in Victoria, Australia, located on the Bellarine Peninsula. At the 2006 census, Ocean Grove had a population of 11,274.

In 1869 American Methodists established a permanent religious camp community on the coast at Ocean Grove, New Jersey, in the United States of America. It was so successful that they decided to spread their camps overseas, including to Australia. Following a collaboration with the Victorian Methodists, an initial camp was set up near Point Lonsdale. By 1882 they needed to acquire a larger area, so they could establish their Australian Ocean Grove community.

The site chosen was on the eastern side of the mouth of the Barwon River, overlooking Bass Strait.

In 1887, Charles James and James Grigg purchased, surveyed and subdivided land into 2,500 blocks bearing the covenant " no part of the above Land shall be used for the Manufacture or Sale of Malted Spirituous, or Vinous Liquors ". The Ocean Grove Coffee Palace was built for the Methodist and Temperance Society, the first church service was held on 1 January 1888, and the population was such that a post office opened on 14 September 1888.

In 1927 the town was linked by the Barwon Heads Bridge to Barwon Heads on the other side of the river, previous access being by rowboat.

Many streets are named after important people in the old Methodist community, while the local youth camp was run by the Methodist church from the 1920s until 1996.

Now the largest town on the Bellarine Peninsula, Ocean Grove has the largest shopping centre on the peninsula. Only a few blocks from the beach, it is popular with tourists and locals alike. In 2005 a new shopping centre was built in the Collendina area, allowing the locals to shop at both Coles and Safeway supermarkets.

Ocean Grove has a resident population of approximately 10,000 which, during the school summer holidays, swells to four times this number as tourists from Melbourne, Geelong, interstate, and overseas flock in. The area offers surf beaches, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, bushwalking and other outdoor activities. The Ocean Grove Nature Reserve preserves some remnant native woodland and contains walking tracks.

Signification infrastructure development in Ocean Grove during 2008-2009 has resulted in two soccer pitches, indoor swimming complex complete with a 25m pool and a four-star Skate Park with Bowl suitable for boards, blades and bikes. A Target Country Store was opened in October 2009 as part of a mini-mall, featuring Gloria Jeans. Upgrades to the 'Grubbers' Football clubrooms are scheduled for 2009.

While tourism makes the largest contribution to the local economy, during the slower months a larger proportion of local income is derived from orchards, fruit and vegetable growers, and the local wineries.
