Geelong & Bellarine

It’s where the Ute was created, where mechanical refrigeration was pioneered and where the late Stuart Devlin, granted the Royal Warrant of Appointment as Goldsmith and Jeweller to Queen Elizabeth II and designer of Australian currency was born.

Geelong’s design credentials have been internationally recognised, designated as a UNESCO City of Design. Geelong’s future as a City of Design has been realised through architecturally and culturally significant design projects such as the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre and the Geelong Performing Arts Centre redevelopment.

Add a north-facing bay, world-famous theatre companies; intriguing gallery hubs; and laneways and byways to explore; and you have a city-defining its future through design and culture.

Head on out along the Bellarine Highway to explore independent galleries; grand architecture and the community arts hub, The Potato Shed. Celebrating 25 years of riding the rails along the Bellarine, the legendary Blues Train travels between Queenscliff and Drysdale return. A world-famous, unique blues music experience, The Blues Train also showcases the best in local award-winning wines and food.

From premier arts venues to rip-roaring train rides, the region brings the thrill of art and culture to life.
