On one of the many hot days in Australia, we paid a visit to Geelong. Geelong is a city south-west of Melbourne, about 1 hour away from where we were staying. The city’s waterfront as a great place to spend a lazy day when it’s hot.
There is a 19th-century carousel, which we drove past but sadly didn’t go to. There’s also a Ferris wheel that dominates the skyline.
We ate in one of the bars on the waterfront and then walked down to the pool, grabbing an ice-cream on the way. There is a public outdoor swimming pool by the beach. It’s quite shallow and ideal for those with kids. There’s also a section of the sea that’s cornered off so you can swim in the salt water without risk of being bitten by sharks! The sea bath has floating islands, a diving tower and diving boards.
Throughout the city, you’ll find colourful sculptures and status that document the history of Geelong.
Anyway – let’s let the pictures do the talking!
