Jump into Geelong’s past

The sparkly, culture-filled lights of Melbourne shine just an hour north of Geelong, but this historic coastal city has just as much to offer as its big metro sister. Life moves at a more leisurely pace in Geelong, but that doesn’t mean you’ll run out of things to do.

There’s a constant seaside carnival vibe pumping at the Geelong Waterfront, more local history to be found at the National Wool Museum, and endless art and theatre experiences popping up at the Geelong Arts Centre.

Geelong Waterfront

A journey to Geelong wouldn’t be complete without a day at the Waterfront. Take a turn on the Ferris wheel for stunning views over the beachfront and Corio Bay; jump off the ocean promenade into the water at Eastern Beach; or stop in at cafes and bars as you meander along the Geelong Baywalk, keeping an eye out for the Baywalk Bollards.

Geelong Botanic Gardens

There’s nothing more picturesque than a picnic among expertly manicured gardens overlooking the seaside, and Geelong Botanic Gardens is the place for it. This 80-hectare space protects native trees and flowers as well as prickly and colourful flora from around the world, and it’s all free to explore.

National Wool Museum

Once the city’s wool mills opened in the mid-nineteenth century, Geelong quickly became known as ‘the wool centre of the world’. The National Wool Museum explores how wool trade has contributed to Australia’s economy for almost 200 years, and where this sits within the region’s 60,000 years of First Nations history.

Hit the road

You don’t have to travel far from Geelong to find natural wonders and bustling city adventures. Get your heart pumping on dirt biking and horse riding trails among stunning surrounds, bliss-out as you bathe in healing mineral waters, and hit the bars and clubs of Melbourne for a riotous night out. It’s all accessible in less than a 90-minute road trip from Geelong.

You Yangs Regional Park

Marvel at the soaring 340-metre granite peaks of the You Yangs, just 20km north of Geelong. There are numerous purpose-built hiking, biking, and horse riding trails to explore under the eucalypt canopy, where you could spot a koala nestled among the branches before you reach breathtaking lookouts.

Hepburn Springs

The small township of Hepburn Springs is home to Australia’s largest concentration of mineral springs. Take part in a luxurious bathing experience at the longstanding Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa, or hike trails and sample springwater throughout Hepburn Mineral Springs Reserve.

Melbourne

Many Melbournites think of Geelong as a day trip destination, but it also works in reverse. If you’re looking for primo shopping opportunities, world-renowned dining, or a thumping nightlife scene, point your compass north and make the one-hour drive to the cosmopolitan heart of Melbourne.

Best Geelong driving roads

Purple squiggle

The Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is Australia’s most famed scenic drive. Starting in Torquay (just 25 minutes’ from Geelong) and hugging the coastline for 243km to Allansford, this epic route provides all the cliffside turns, wending ferny gullies, and epic ocean views that define a truly ‘great’ driving road.

Port Phillip Bay loop

Thanks to the trusty Searoad Ferries chugging between Queenscliff and Sorrento, you can motor the whole way around Port Phillip Bay. Pass the windswept fields of Bellarine before boarding the ferry for views over the open ocean. Meander through the Mornington Peninsula, past St Kilda Beach, and back to Geelong.

Arthur’s Seat

Whether it’s part of the Port Phillip Bay Loop or a there-and-back road trip, Geelong visitors shouldn’t miss the drive up one of Victoria’s windiest roads. There are hairpins a’plenty on the road to Arthur’s Seat lookout, and you’ll be richly rewarded with glorious views over the bay.
