Geelong & The Bellarine
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.
