Summer in Geelong and The Bellarine is Worth the Wait

Summer in Geelong and The Bellarine is Worth the Wait

There’s really no time like summer in Geelong and The Bellarine with a combination of stunning environment, glorious beaches, memorable experiences and delicious menus, the region is a sensational spot to spend the holidays.


Sip on a cold beverage in a seaside beer garden like, Queenscliff Brewhouse, Sailors' Rest on Geelong's Waterfront, or At The Heads in Barwon Heads. 


Head to The Pier View Lolly Shop, Queenscliff Harbour or stop at one of the many ice cream trucks along the coast, and race against the heat so your soon-to-be-liquid ice cream doesn't run down your forearm.


Try a crisp wine at Nicol's Paddock, snuggle into crisp linen at Lon Retreat and taste a crisp menu while dining alfresco at Basils Farm.


And go shopping for a new book, sunnies, Gifts or a board to take to the beach. 


All the great things you love doing here may be a little different as we do our best to keep you safe during your visit.

Opening hours may differ and wait times may be a little longer than usual.

Staff are all doing their best to follow regulations, so please be patient and kind as we welcome much of Victoria back for a well-earned break in our neck of the woods.

It’s a good idea to book ahead, remember go with the flow (you’re on holidays, after all, no need to rush!) and bear with us - it will always be worth the wait.
