Known by some as the ‘wool centre of the world’ in times gone by you’d be forgiven for skipping Geelong as a quick-break destination..  Not any more. Geelong has emerged as a  vibrant city offering  visitors a taste of the coast, adventure on the water, and spoonfuls of mother nature. Go surfing or SUP-ing at world famous Bells Beach, enjoy a walk through the Great Otway National Park, or immerse yourself in local culture, by getting along to the AFL.
