Redefining the future by adopting a clever and creative vision, Geelong is transitioning from a manufacturing metropolis to a city recognised for design innovation.
As Australia’s only designated UNESCO City of Design, Geelong is internationally recognised with architecturally and culturally significant projects such as the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre (The Dome); the redevelopment of the Geelong Arts Centre; the award winning contemporary song-line arts walk, Mountain to Mouth and Geelong After Dark, the annual artistic exploration of the heart of Geelong.
Home to Australia’s Word for Word National Non-Fiction Festival; Geelong Design Week; and the internationally celebrated Back to Back Theatre, Geelong is becoming a destination for engaging and thought-provoking art.
After you’ve explored the outstanding collection of Australian and European painting, sculpture, printmaking and decorative arts at the Geelong Gallery, download the Geelong Arts & Culture Trails app to discover the creative hubs that are located throughout the City and surrounds.
