The Area
Only an hour from Melbourne, Geelong is a city on the move and the signs of change are everywhere, from the stunning waterfront and urban precinct to the craft breweries and cafes that have reclaimed and reshaped the city's old industrial landscape.

Get a dose of sunshine with a stroll along the waterfront, taking in public artworks, landscaped gardens, ice-cream parlours and eateries. Cool off in the art deco-style pool and kick back in the promenade complex and restored pavilion at Eastern Beach.

Sign up for an eco-adventure tour, use it as a base to explore the famous Geelong wine region, or take your pick from a wide range of adrenaline-charged activities.

Take full advantage of Geelong's unique north-facing bay at fabulous waterfront restaurants and cafes, from Cunningham Pier to Eastern Beach. Grab a bite to eat on Pakington Street and visit delicatessens and wine merchants for some take home goodies.

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.

We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location.
