Geelong

Geelong is the second most populated area in Victoria with an amount of about 150,000 people. Located on the shores of Port Phillip Bay, Geelong is the gateway to the Bellarine Peninsula and the famous Great Ocean Road. Wander along the stunning waterfront of Victoria's second largest city past public artworks, landscaped gardens, ice-cream parlours and eateries. Take a dip in the art deco-style pool and kick back in the promenade complex and restored pavilion at Eastern Beach. Local goodiesTake full advantage of Geelong's unique north-facing bay at fabulous waterfront restaurants and cafes, from Cunningham Pier to Eastern Beach. Grab a bite to eat on Pakington Street and visit delicatessens and wine merchants for some take home goodies. Got time for a drive? Spend a day or two exploring the many cellar doors at vineyards across the Geelong wine region.

Art and heritageDiscover the wealth of public art works along the waterfront from the whimsical Baywalk Bollards to the iconic Shark Fins and Cargo Boxes. The sculptured bollards chronicle characters from the city's past and present, including dapper young ladies in neck-to-knee bathing costumes, 1930s lifesavers, traditional Aussie families and jaunty sailors. For an inside look at the city's vibrant contemporary art scene, check out Boom Gallery in the industrial area of Geelong, a complex that houses, galleries, workshops, studios and an event space.
