A visit to Geelong is not complete if you haven't seen our spectacular waterfront.
The Geelong Waterfront is one of Australia's most stunning waterfronts. Having started from humble beginnings when Geelong was founded as a port in 1836, the Waterfront has now attracted a series of prestigious awards.
This cosmopolitan and vibrant area is a hive of activity with restaurants and cafes, beautiful landscaped gardens, attractions and public art, all with amazing views of Corio bay. It also provides a full events calendar, tourism, education and accommodation services: Our historic carousel, Poppy Kettle playground and youth activities area is great for kids of all ages. See Geelong's famous bollards.
There are plenty of possibilities to explore and view the Waterfront: take a ride on a Harley Davidson motorcycle, or the trackless train if you prefer a more leisurely look around check out the view from the air in a helicopter or take a boat cruise along Geelong's spectacular Waterfront.
When the weather heats up, cool off on the Waterfront at the Eastern beach swimming promenade. Children's pool, enclosed sea baths, diving platforms, all patrolled by lifeguards on duty during the summer months.
