Arts and Culture


Did you know that in the late 1800's Geelong was known as the 'wool centre of the world? The city has evolved and grown and now is recognized as a UNESCO City of Design. This itinerary will take you on a journey through time and place, discovering the famous wool industry and the incredible architecture of our Geelong Library, affectionately known as The Dome.
