Geelong is a port city located on Corio Bay and the Barwon River, in the state of Victoria, Australia, 75km south-west of the state capital, Melbourne. Bring the kids along to Werribee Open Range Zoo and Sovereign Hill. Get out of town with these interesting Geelong side-trips: Cowes (A Maze'N Things, Koala Conservation Centre, & more), RAAF Museum (in Point Cook) and Ballarat (The Gold Museum, Kryal Castle, & more). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Eastern Beach Reserve, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, get in on the family fun at The Carousel, and examine the collection at National Wool Museum.
