If it’s been a few years since you last visited Geelong, you may be forgiven for thinking it’s not much more than a big country town. But Melbourne’s little sister is all grown up. Now you’ll find arts, food and culture to rival the bigger metropolis. But without the congestion that can make city living unbearable.
During the day, Geelong hums with activity as workers head to the office and head out for lunch. At night, the city’s restaurant and bar precincts come alive as people wind down (or indeed, just get things started).
On the weekend, it’s time to explore the region, with boutique wineries, beaches and great walks just down the road. Or hit the shops and pick yourself up something cute. With so many great brands local to Geelong, you’ll never be short of a new find.
When it comes time to get out of town, you’ll find Geelong an ideal hub for almost any destination. Head up the highway to Melbourne by car, bus or train – or indeed, ferry. The new Geelong ferry (plus the longstanding Portarlington-Docklands route) offers a different kind of commute.
When holidays come around, Geelong is an ideal starting point. Avalon airport – just 30 minutes by car – offers Australian and international flights. And of course, you’re not that far from Melbourne airport either.
And with Geelong now the new home of the Spirit of Tasmania, a trip to the Apple Isle has never been easier.
There’s plenty of activity when it comes to building in Geelong, offering everything from brand new town centre apartments to family homes in fast-growing suburbs. Of course, Geelong’s history means there are plenty of heritage and older style homes in more established suburbs if that’s more your style.
While house prices have gone up in recent years, there’s still plenty of value to be found around the region.
When it comes time to move, it’s good to go with a removalist who knows the region. One you can trust to get you into your new place, without the worry of high costs or poor service.
