The Area

Geelong combines the best elements of a cosmopolitan city with some of the world’s most magnificent surf beaches just a stone’s throw away. Only an hour’s drive from Melbourne, Geelong offers a range of lifestyle choices - inner city, suburban, waterfront, coastal and rural - with greater value for money than equivalent properties in nearby Melbourne. 

The city’s vibrant retail heart is alive with cafes and restaurants and cinemas. And overlooking Corio Bay, with its backdrop of ships and yachts, is the pier and waterfront precinct which has been transformed to accommodate stylish new eateries, beautiful landscaped gardens, fantastic public art encircled by walking, cycling and skating paths.

The regional city educational facilities include two top private schools and the Deakin University and the Gordon Institute of TAFE.

Geelong is also the jumping off point for the spectacular Great Ocean Road and a range of surf beaches including the world famous Bells Beach where international surfing championships are held.
