Accomodations in Ocean Grove,near Geelong

by sanfrid

Hi! We are a retired Swedish couple going to spend X-mas/New Year with our daughter and family. They rent a rather small house in Ocean Grove and we are looking for somebody who might have an extra bedroom to rent for us? Or know some BB? "House-sitting" would also be ok. Thanks!

Travel Tips for Geelong


by Marpessa

Walking. You see more on foot then you do in a car or bus. Walking in any city or town is a way to get closer to understanding a culture, because you're not looking at it through a window, you're in amongst the crowd. Since this is my home town, (when I go away) I miss the familiarity of knowing exactly where things are. Other than that, being outdoors, playing cricket with the family, or going down to the beach.

Geelong, Getting Here - Getting Around

by cassiejoy42

Geelong's Waterfront is one of my favourite places to go on a sunny day.

Come to Geelong on the 6th of November to celebrate the Carousel's 6th Birthday.

You can get to Geelong by plane - to Tullamarine Airport or Jetstar (Avalon), or by train or by bus. Or you can drive down the Princes Highway to Geelong. When I take my daughters with me to Geelong Waterfront, we usually have a nice long walk along Eastern Beach and Western Beach. Sometimes they have a play at Poppy Kettle Playground - you are never to old to release your inner child so adults are allowed to play here too!

Then we either have a gelati from the gelati van at Eastern Beach or we walk up Yarra Street to the ice cream parlour (Sweet Susies) that is located not far from Bay City Plaza and Market Square (almost on the corner of Malop Street and Yarra Street).

Commencing the scenic drive

The whole Great Ocean road is great, though not everyone has time to see it in its entirety.
I'd recommend starting the trip at the trendy surf town of Torquay with its world famous competition surf beach, Bells Beach.
The next major small town on the map is Anglesea, more of a fishing town and less commercial, followed by Lorne, almost as famous a holiday/swim summer holiday destination to Victorians as Torquay.
Apollo Bay is another 30 kms further away down the coast, and 'off the beaten track' a little, so it's less trendy and has less resort development, though that is now changing with the price of real estate now rising there also.
From Apollo Bay, the next major stop is a considerable distance, but well worth a view of the 12 Apostles (see Travelogue pics). The Great Ocean road ends around the town of Portland.
A word of warning: I'd never attempt to see the whole Road in one day. For one thing, there are too many nice towns and attractions to see, and another is the road you're driving on.
For most of the way you'll have cliffs on one side above you, and a sheer drop to the ocean on the other side. The road curves are for the most part very tight, so you can only do 40 - 70 km/hr at most.

National Hotel

by cassiejoy42

Most towns and cities in Australia have the famous "pub" or hotel on every corner.

At one stage there were about 95 pubs in Geelong.

Nowadays there are lots of pubs, bars, night clubs, wine bars and restaurants and cafes available - in Geelong - where you can have a meal, a drink, a dance, a glass of wine, coffee and a cake, or coffee with a meal.

Here is one of our landmark hotels - The National.

If you are down at the Waterfront and you want to go and sit in a traditional pub where there is a bar, with a barman serving, then walk up Moorabool St from the Waterfront and you will find the National Hotel on your left, halfway up the hill.

Come in and meet some of the locals and find out about the local activities and functions that are happening around Geelong from the real, fair dinkum, locals.

Well... this is another Scandinavian related tip. As when I was in Scandinavia I noticed that a lot of guys wear white pants. Just letting you guys know however that 'Aussie blokes' (guys) here don't wear white pants unless their going to play a game of cricket.

Sure some of them might wear a light pink t-shirt (if it's by 'Quicksilver' or some beach clothing company like that), but white pants... no way.

White board shorts are okay though.

This is just in case any of you are worried about making a fashion faux paux.
