Accommodation in Bellarine Peninsula

Nestled along the shores of Port Phillip, Geelong is one of the most populated areas in Victoria. The city prides itself on its generous supply of parkland and the transformation of its waterfront district into an ideal place to eat and play. Enjoy a tranquil walk through the Balyang Sanctuary, go shopping in the store-rich city centre, and get off the beaten path by taking a 4WD trip along the roads leading to Great Otway National Park.

Places to see in Bellarine Peninsula

Among the first stops you’ll likely want to make upon your arrival in Geelong is the city’s famed Waterfront, which serves as the ideal setting to get acquainted with the culture in this area. More than a handful of restaurants line the piers along this part of the coast, with plenty of playgrounds and parklands that are perfect for picnics. Geelong also offers an assortment of activities, including a trip to the National Wool Museum or the city’s expansive art gallery. Alternatively, you can give your brain a break and treat your tastebuds by taking a tour of the Little Creatures Brewery. Here you’ll have a chance to sample some of the beer chain’s best suds, and satisfy your hunger with one of their mouth-watering kangaroo skewers.

The Geelong Botanic Gardens are another big draw for first-timers in this territory. This landscape of lush lawns exists to conserve an immense number of plant species, while also treating your senses to a vibrant variety of rare and regal flowers. And if you seek an experience that’s more artsy and industrial, the Geelong Powerhouse is an indoor space that encourages the creation of graffiti and other forms of street art.

Weather

With comfortable summers and moderate winters, there’s never a bad time to visit the port city of Geelong. The temperate oceanic climate in this corner of Oz results in reasonable thermometer readings throughout the year. Highs in the summer hardly ever exceed 25 degrees Celsius, while winter lows often don’t descend below 5 degrees. Geelong’s proximity to the Otway Ranges and the city’s position relative to the mountains results in reduced wind, which makes rainfall somewhat of a rarity. In fact, precipitation here is so infrequent that Geelong is considered the country’s largest city that receives the least amount of rainfall.

Hotels

No matter your travel needs or budget, you can find plenty of Geelong hotels to choose from here on Expedia.com.au. Travellers on a budget can stay at comfortable, well-appointed motels and hotels throughout the city. You can also indulge in a 4-star hotel experience near the waterfront or close to one of the city’s parks. Swimming pools, room service, kitchenettes, and more accommodation in Geelong is available to ensure you have every convenience you need.

Travel Basics

To enjoy the warmest temperatures offered by Geelong, visit the Victoria city in January and February, when the average high temperature is between 25 and 26 degrees Celsius. Geelong is driest during these months as well.

There is plenty of opportunity to play on the water in Geelong, but some safety concerns should be minded. Only swim in areas with yellow and red flags, which signal the presence of lifesavers along the beach. When no lifesaver is on duty, avoid the water or stick close to shore.

Geelong is waiting for you, so start planning your next trip to the southern Australia coast today. Whether you take a weekend trip from Melbourne or soak in the sun for a week, you are bound to enjoy a relaxing escape when you visit Geelong. Accommodation is diverse in this Victoria gem.
