5 Places to Stay and Walk to Simonds Stadium

5 Places to Stay and Walk to Simonds Stadium

After the recruiting department had an epic summer, the Cats are sitting pretty at second on the ladder. The run home will be instrumental in determining how long our September lasts. I'm hoping it lasts until well into October, if you know what I mean?!

There's never been a better time to be part of the Simonds Stadium action, and we'll help you make a weekend of it.



The ultra-slick Devlin Apartments are a Tom-Hawkins-drop-punt away from the ground. Developed in the repurposed tech school, the amazing arched windows and beautiful decor are a highlight.

Mercure Hotel has over 100 rooms, a restaurant and bar plus it's a downhill walk to the footy. (The uphill walk home will be easy after a Cats win!)

Walking distance to the footy but close to the city and waterfront, Geelong Serviced Apartments have one and two bedroom apartments perfect for footy-loving-families or friends.

About Town Geelong City Apartment is just down the street from Kardinia Park. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms and four stars it's a definite goal for footy fans.

Geelong CBD Accommodation has a flexible layout catering for anything from singles to groups of 12 people, all close to the action at Simonds Stadium.



There's heaps of stuff within walking distance of Simonds Stadium. Share a table full of food and some locally brewed bevvies at Little Creatures. There are pubs aplenty close by like Sawyers Arms Tavern and Lord of the Isles. Or, of course, you can do the traditional thing and get a pie and sauce once you're at the ground.



Get your tickets, wrap your scarf around your neck, bring your loudest voice and go Cats!
