Gee­long & The Bel­lar­ine

Melbourne Official Visitor Guide - - Regional Victoria -

Gee­long, Vic­to­ria’s se­cond largest city, has emerged from its past as a man­u­fac­tur­ing town to be rein­vented as a city with an en­vi­able life­style. In­cred­i­ble places to eat and drink dot­ted through­out precincts across the city, com­bined with a fresh ap­proach to cul­ture and a sparkling event cal­en­dar, make Gee­long an ideal des­ti­na­tion to ex­plore.

Half an hour from the city in any di­rec­tion leads to de­li­cious­ness. In the Moora­bool Val­ley and across the Bel­lar­ine, pro­duce is grown in fresh air along­side some of Aus­tralia’s most awarded winer­ies and vine­yards.

Around the Bel­lar­ine, towns over­look bays and oceans.

You’ll find great cof­fee, se­cret shop­ping spots and fun ac­tiv­i­ties, all with a sea breeze. You needn’t travel far to feel like you’re a mil­lion miles away. Gee­long is only an hour from Mel­bourne by car or reg­u­lar trains that run from South­ern Cross Sta­tion. The Bel­lar­ine is a 90-minute drive from Mel­bourne or ferry from the Dock­lands or Sor­rento.
