One step backwards in Geelong


When I was in Australia I forgot about posting the pics of my one-day escape to Geelong and  the Bellarine Peninsula.

Well, acutally, maybe it is because I have not much to say about it save that Geelong has a good footy team (named The Geelong cats), that it is an industrial port and city located right at the beginning of the Great ocean road and nearby the Bellarine peninsula, a food and wine destination. The Bellarine Taste Trail brings together many of the gourmet offerings of the region including wineries, restaurants and cafes and producers of beer….  Geelong’s main tourist attractions are the « Bollards », big wooded sculptures with different characteristics and shapes made by the artist Jan Mitchell. There are over 100 bollards stretching the waterfront (some of them look definitely French as you can see on the pictures). The message of the masterpiece seem quite multicultural actually.

Otherwise, the Eastern beach has a beautiful hill providing landscape and views of Corio Bay. Locals and tourists also come here to enjoy the swimming and picnic area. They can also visit the Wool Museum, and apparently it is not as borring as is might sound.
