Geelong & the Bellarine

 

Geelong has all the benefits of a sizeable city but with the relaxed atmosphere of coastal country. Facing north on Corio Bay, Geelong boasts a glorious waterfront precinct, sophisticated dining options and all kinds of entertainment on tap. There is a lively calendar of events and the region is perhaps the Australian wine industry's best-kept secret.

The charming towns and villages of the Bellarine have an expansive range of things to do. The Bellarine Peninsula faces Port Phillip Bay on its northern and eastern shores side and Bass Strait on the south, so water activities range from gentle bay beaches that are great for families and fishing to sensational surf beaches and world-class scuba diving sites.

The Bellarine has been building a reputation as a food and wine destination and The Bellarine Taste Trail brings together many of the gourmet offerings of the region including wineries, restaurants and cafes and producers of cheese, beer, fresh produce, olive oil and seafood.
