18 Best Geelong Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Geelong is south west of Melbourne on the Port Phillip Harbour, approximately 1 hour drive away. Visitors come from near and far to see the unique and beautiful shores of the Great Ocean Road. This 243 km stretch of coastline is highlighted by the 12 Apostles (rock stacks formed by the sea) and the Loch Ard Gorge, where the ship, the Loch Ard, finished her final voyage on the rocks.

A day in Melbourne could also be an option, or catch the ferry across to the Mornington Peninsula. Set out to explore the Bellarine Peninsula on the Bellarine Rail Trail, or spend the day at Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park.
