Located just 75km south-east of Melbourne, Geelong is Victoria’s second-largest city and hands down the most spectacular. Derived from the Aboriginal word ‘jilliong’ which means “a place of the sea bird over the white cliffs” – Geelong is aptly named. Fabulous waterfront eateries, landscaped gardens and walking paths set against the backdrop of the glorious Corio Bay are just a taste of Geelong’s highlights. Eastern Beach’s art deco-style pool, and restored promenade make for a fun day out whilst an excursion to the National Wool Museum provides a great walk down memory lane. Other Geelong highlights include the fantastic Ford Discovery Centre, amazing Art Gallery and the beautiful Barwon River. And if that’s not enough, the Bellarine Peninsula and famous Great Ocean Road are also nearby.
