GEELONG (Victoria)

Known as an agricultural and pastoral town in the past and as an industrial center after the 1850’s gold rush, Geelong is now experiencing record growth, economic development and investment. Its name originates from the Aboriginal word for bay - jillong. Located on the shores of Corio Bay, this bustling metropolis, second-largest city in Victoria and gateway to the spectacular Ocean Road has always had strong links with the water. Interest in renovating the waterfront and investing in museums and tourism facilities has grown in recent years. View more

The results can be seen in the vibrant waterfront precinct, the Art Deco Eastern Beach and by the number of holiday makers increasing each year.

History & Heritage of Geelong

Discover the splendid highlights and history of Geelong during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Panoramic Drive of Geelong

Board your coach at the pier and begin with a panoramic drive through Geelong where you will receive a wonderful overview of the downtown area. The second largest city in the state of Victoria, Geelong was named in 1837 after an Aboriginal word that means "cliffs," a distinct feature of the surrounding area. During your panoramic drive, you'll pass many of the city's most important landmarks, including the lively waterfront and serene Botanic Gardens, before arriving at the National Wool Museum for a visit.


National Wool Museum

Next, proceed for a visit to the National Wool Museum, a must-see for visitors to Geelong. The museum showcases the people, geography, machinery, skills, textiles, and history associated with the boom years of the wool industry. After meandering through the museum galleries, you'll watch a sheep-shearing demonstration by a local farmer who will be happy to share his knowledge about the wool industry, which has dominated the country's economy.


Old Geelong Gaol

Continuing, you will make your way to the Old Geelong Gaol. Built during the mid-1840s, the former Victorian-era maximum-security prison closed in 1991. However, the interior remains much as it was. During your visit, you'll see the mural a prisoner painted in Cell 47 called the "Window to Freedom," the former gallows, several solitary confinement cells, and the exercise yard. It's a sobering look into prison life, and afterwards you'll be glad to walk outside again.


Following your visit, you will re-board your coach and return to the pier.

The Great Ocean Road & Twelve Apostles

One of the world's most famous coastal drives, the Great Ocean Road is spectacular and breathtaking. The mighty Twelve Apostles are world-recognised icons of the Great Ocean Road, located southwest of Geelong in the Port Campbell National Park. Twenty million years ago, the forces of nature began weathering the soft limestone of the Port Campbell cliffs. The resulting rock islands of up to 144 feet (45 metres) high were left isolated from the shore, standing just off-shore 'as if a group of apostles waiting to be sent'. Join this full-day outing to one of Australia's most spectacular geological sights via coach.


Great Ocean Road, Panoramic Views, Apollo Bay, Free Time

Boarding your coach at the pier, you will begin driving in a southwesterly direction along the Great Ocean Road, which winds along Victoria's windswept shoreline, a rugged area known as the Shipwreck Coast because an estimated 700 ships have been lost here. A stop is made in the town of Apollo Bay which features an historic downtown and a serene beach. Enjoy approximately 1-hour of free time here, where you may take a refreshing walk, enjoy lunch on your own, and perhaps see seals frolicking just off shore.


Otway National Park, Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge

Your journey continues as you travel through the Otway National Park containing lush green forests before reaching the magnificent Twelve Apostles. The winding road offers spectacular views of the Ocean with the Twelve Apostles and the site of a tragic, yet romantic shipwreck at Loch Ard Gorge. Extensive boardwalks and viewing platforms ensure you truly experience the sweeping, awe-inspiring vistas while marvelling at the rugged cliffs.


Your return route to Geelong has you passing through Victoria's rural farmlands before arriving back to the pier.
