From sheep town to mining town to charming getaway on Corio Bay, today’s Geelong has been a long time in the making. While Melbourne teases its much smaller sibling for being backwater, Geelong has more to offer than its big brother would have you believe—like a sparkling waterfront, little pockets of charm and historical buildings turned trendy, taste bud-tempting venues.
In short, there’s a sophistication here you wouldn’t expect from such a quiet “country town”. Sure, you can hunt for antiques or visit the nearby wineries with the bed and breakfast crowd. Or you can catch a game of footy next to thousands of raving fans. Or both! Why not?
Geelong flights land at Avalon Airport (AVV), 21km outside the city centre. Geelong Transit Service provides a pretty good bus service around town, while taxis take you door-to-door. For the ultimate freedom, check out Wotif’s car hire options or bring your bike to this cyclist-friendly city.
Are you on flights to Geelong that land in the morning? Go for an early bike ride on Bellarine Rail Trail. It’s just 35km from South Geelong Station to Queenscliff. If you arrive in the afternoon, learn everything you’d ever want to know about the bleating locals (sheep, that is) at the National Wool Museum. “Ewe’ll” have a great time!
Touching down in the evening? Head to the Geelong Waterfront for a bite to eat. Then walk off those calories with an evening stroll along the water’s edge before heading back to one of our Geelong hotels to recharge.
Where can you find locals when they get a little time off? You Yangs Park, of course. Pick one of the walking trails or head up to Flinders Peak to check out views of the city.

Here’s an insider tip: Sunday is typically the cheapest day to fly! Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2020, we found that flights departing on a Sunday generally had the lowest average price, closely followed by flights on a Tuesday.

Guess what? Boring old Thursday really is the best day to score the cheapest plane tickets. Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2020, we found that flights purchased on a Thursday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on a Sunday also seems to score pretty good deals. However, airfares purchased on a Tuesday generally have a higher than average ticket value, so you might want to prepare your budget if you’re booking early in the week.
When comparing airfares booked through Wotif in 2020, our data shows March is one of the cheapest months to fly. On the other hand, the month of June can be one of the most expensive times to travel, with the highest average ticket price, so it’s best to get in early if June is your preferred travel month.
Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2020 flight demand trends, you can bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing 4 weeks to 3 months prior to travel.
Looking for clever ways to save on your next trip? Try mixing and matching airlines and fare types. Our data tells us, travellers who booked flights on Wotif in 2020 saved close to 50% off their airfare, when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.
