Greater Geelong and The Bellarine
Get together in a region famous for its easy access and well-rounded character, a combo of cosmopolitan city chic and relaxed seaside village.
From Melbourne, it’s a 30-minute jaunt to Werribee’s superb conference centre cleverly positioned within a vibrant tourist precinct boasting a heritage mansion and gardens, and the Werribee Open Range Zoo.
Further west along the freeway, Victoria’s second largest city Geelong can cater for thousands of delegates in state-of-theart facilities within a stone’s throw of its brilliant waterfront precinct and much admired wine region.
Geelong is a 21st century city with a focus on knowledge, innovation and collaboration. Tour a research facility, take-in an expert-led brainstorm session or engage a thought-leader to keynote your event.
Explore Geelong’s wool and manufacturing heritage, cruise the bay, stroll the promenade or relax in any of dozens of desirable eateries dotting the waterfront and CBD.
Nearby, The Bellarine and beaches beckon with grand refurbished hotels and the serene sounds of the sea. Make Queenscliff your conference central for ready access to a myriad of venues and after-hours options.
Board the ferry for a 40-minute cruise to Sorrento, swim with the dolphins in Port Phillip Bay, dance the night away on the legendary Blues Train, laze-away an afternoon at a spa, tee-off at a premium coastal golf course or team-up for a group guided heritage walk through stunning streetscapes.
The whole region is endowed with gourmet gifts, from harbour-side seafood eateries to silver service restaurants, take-away gems, coffee-worshiping cafés and wineries galore.
Versatile, accessible and loveable at every turn, Geelong and The Bellarine is made for meeting mastery.
