    Fingered Food

    There is a restaurant at the end of Cunningham Pier called Smorgy's (as in smorgasboard). At night this restaurant looks beautiful sitting at the end of the pier, lights on all around. So the scenery is nice.

    The food is a different matter. This is the place that you hear horror stories about, from the people who used to work there. Unfortunately there are a lot of adults that take their kids there, and the kids end up fingering a lot of the food.

    Fun Alternatives: Next to Smorgy's on the pier is 'Buccaneer's'. This is a restaurant, so there's no worry of getting food that's been fingered by kids, and it is also a bit quieter. Enjoy.

    Pictured here is one of the most beautiful towns along the Great Ocean Rd. 'Lorne'. When I'm staying in Geelong, I love coming here, seeing the sites, and having a nice casual lunch. Makes for a wonderful day.

    I am not aware of any tourist traps in Geelong, but that doesn't mean there aren't any :)

    Smorgy’s Restaurant on Cunningham Pier. Many a man has been lured by the prospect of a set price all you can eat buffet and regreted having to spend the evening listening to an animated Seal. Now it is time to be frank. The two times I have been there have been disappointing. Lots of little Fingers in the food and lots of noise. It is not mentioned in any of the tourist literature I have read and the only thing going for it in my opinion is the view.
    Do venture into the café on the other side of Cunningham Pier called Buccaneers. Take a look at the free Aquarium along one wall and if you wish to stop, have a coffee and admire the view.
