All libraries are closed on public holidays.
Ocean Grove is the largest town on the Bellarine and boasts a long library history – a free library opened in the public hall in 1910 and our current library includes a City of Greater Geelong service point and was opened as part of The Grove Centre in 1993. Renovations in 2014 improved the floor area, technology and services available. This busy library has frequent children’s activities enlivening the space and reflecting the diverse demographics of our community.

One cold morning in late May 1942, the bullet-ridden body of Driver Roy Willis was found on the side of the Wallington-Ocean Grove Road. He had been shot anumber of times with a military revolver. Three months later, the killer struck again. Gunner John Hulston’s body was eventually recovered and like Willis, he had been shot in the chest with a .455 calibre army revolver. As with any good murder mystery, this story has more twists and turns than the Great Ocean Road. Local author Bob Marmion uses his experience as a former police detective and military historian to unravel this cold case mystery.
