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.
Want to check out some sweet deals for your getaway? Wotif has mountains of cheap flights to Geelong—all in an easy, sortable system that has you booking fast and saving big without even breaking a sweat. Ready, set, go!
