It is a charming place with a laid-back atmosphere making travel to Geelong an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne. Geelong acts as a gateway to the Great Ocean Road region and the coastal towns of the Bellarine Peninsula. Geelong is an industrial town but recent closures of several manufacturing units have lead to the city being in a phase of transition and reinvention.
The Corio Bay waterfront and the city center with historical buildings, numerous restaurants and bars, a host of art and culture related activities, fun filled parks and beaches, all make Geelong an ideal place to visit.
Geelong tourist information is available through two main visitor centers in the city where you can pick up a Geelong travel guide. Geelong and Great Ocean Road Visitor Information Office on Princess Hwy, Little River and Geelong Visitor Information Centre at Moorabool Street both offer visitors guidance and assistance to be able to make the most of their trip.
