Holiday To Geelong

If you’re on the hunt for your next great escape, look toward Corio Bay, tucked in the curve of Port Phillip. That’s where you’ll find Geelong.
This harbourside city is one of Victoria’s largest metropolitan centres, but it doesn’t let that go to its head. This active sea port is home to all the museums, fine dining and glittering nightlife you’d hope for in a big city, wish plenty of beach town charm. Spend your holiday in Geelong chilling on the beach, wandering through historic streets and staring off into the bay—everyone does it. Whether you’re marine maven or a landlubber, check out our awesome Geelong holiday packages and get outta here!

Things to Do in Geelong

Holidays to Geelong are all about the beach. Kick off your adventure at Eastern Beach, located on the northeast edge of town. Splash around in the swim enclosure and wander over to the carousal to spin dry before you walk along Cunningham Pier. Next, check out local art galleries and the National Wool Museum. An ode to this cosy textile may seem a little warm while you’re hanging ten in your togs, but, hey, sheep love the sunny Victorian coast too! To see more of the city, you’ll want to get behind the wheel of one of Wotif’s Geelong car hire deals—the sportier, the better. Drive along the west side of the bay to the Geelong Naval and Maritime Museum to learn about the local seafaring history.

Keep cruising up the coast until you reach a building covered in colourful graffiti. No, we’re not sending you to an abandoned industrial park—we’re talking about Geelong Powerhouse, an avant-garde gallery of street art painted right on the walls. Prefer a more historic aesthetic? Stop an event at the Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre, a performance venue that embraces Victoria’s earliest heritage.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

The Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre also happens to be a great place to shop for treasures that represent your amazing Geelong holiday. Likewise, the Geelong Vintage Market offers one-of-a-kind finds, from antique furniture to fashion and used books. Check it out! You never know where you’ll find the perfect beach read…

OK foodies, prepare your hearts and your stomachs, because you’re gonna fall in love with Geelong. The gourmet coffee shop scene and airy cafes keep the beach vibes alive. Chow down on fresh fish and modern Aussie dishes and squeeze your chopsticks around sushi so fresh it practically swam up to the kitchen.

Of course, you don’t want to eat and run. Pair Geelong’s flair for finer things with the nearby wine region and you’ve got some sweet-as nightlife. Sip the local vino or order a fancy craft cocktail and listen to live music with views of Corio Bay. Now, that’s a good night!

What’s Next?

Whether you want to travel in the lap of luxury or escape on the fly with cheap Geelong packages, Wotif has your holiday covered. Mix and match airfares that fit your schedule with gorgeous hotels and great deals. It won’t be long till you’re living it up in Geelong!
