Geelong is a port city located on Corio Bay and the Barwon River, in the state of Victoria, Australia, 75km south-west of the state capital, Melbourne.

Get out of town with these interesting Geelong side-trips: Cape Schanck Lighthouse (in Cape Schanck), St Anne's Winery (in Bacchus Marsh) and Apollo Bay (Mariners Lookout & Bay of Apostles). Spend the 11th (Sun) exploring the striking scenery along The Great Ocean Road. Spend the 4th (Sun) exploring nature at You Yangs Regional Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Safety Beach, stop by Portal 108, enjoy the sand and surf at 13th Beach, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Werribee Open Range Zoo.
