Geelong Waterfront & Eastern Beach

Geelong, Victoria, Australia

Although seaside towns and surf beaches surround it, the township of Geelong is just as strong in maintaining its own coastal flair, as is evident when you visit Eastern Beach and the connecting Waterfront. Hugging the waters of Corio Bay, and less than a five-minute walk from the city centre, the area is both picturesque and practical. You can have a barbecue or picnic, swim in the public art-deco style pool, play in one of several playgrounds, or walk around the promenade. Buy an ice cream from one of the vans parked along the beach, or grab a coffee from one of the cafes. Walk a little further and you’ll come across some of Geelong’s famous Bollards (painted wooden sculptures that represent local history and characters), of which there are over 100 scattered along the Waterfront. By this point, you should be able to hear the lilting tunes of the fully restored Carousel, which has just celebrated its 10th birthday, and see Cunningham Pier stretching out into the ocean. There is much to see and do when you visit this part of Geelong, and the views are always extremely popular with photographers and tourists, both young and old.
