Greater Geelong and The Bellarine


Greater Geelong and The Bellarine

Be drawn by a glittering city waterfront and a backyard brimming with seaside ambience and gourmet thrills.

Within 30 minutes’ drive of Melbourne you’re in Werribee’s tourist precinct on the doorstep of the Werribee Open Range Zoo, a grand historic mansion and a world-class conference venue.

Further down the freeway, find a 21st century city that’s always open for business, knowledge and innovation. Geelong entices with its own range of event facilities, accommodation options and incentives including a plethora of top-class eateries and exciting wine sub-regions within easy reach. Celebrate with a twilight party-boat cruise or wander the promenade.

Take your team on a tour through the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre (a state-of-the-art architectural wonder), provoke fresh thinking at the Geelong Gallery or laugh through a comedy show at Geelong Performing Arts Centre.

The Bellarine is a beauty in its own right. Let it tempt your group with rural charm, glamorous heritage hotels and seaside villages boasting foodie experiences fit for all. Breweries, cideries, wineries, cheesemakers, olive growers, mussel producers and seafood catchers abound.
