The City is home to many local beaches and parks, such as the botanical gardens, so you can enjoy every minute of the sunshine. Central Geelong offers a diverse range of cuisine, wine and activities ranging from cultural, recreational and family friendly.

Greater Geelong is also famous for excellent surf beaches and an amazing wine region with plenty of opportunities to visit local cellar doors and taste some great Australian wines on offer.
