Geelong and The Bellarine…a refreshing place to meet!

Geelong is Victoria’s largest regional city – a vibrant, innovative mix of heritage, tradition and future-facing innovation. It’s a mecca for researchers, creatives, big thinkers, and movers and shakers. Geelong’s alter ego is fun-loving and free-spirited, borne of all things bayside, beachy, active and natural. Its shimmering waterfront boasts robust conference capability and appealing venues within walking distance of leisure, cultural, commercial, dining and retail precincts.

The Bellarine is a premium conference and event destination in its own right – superb venues and stand-out incentive activities, all cloaked in a round-the-clock, soul-pleasing blanket of fresh sea air, beach-side charm and rural allure. There are golf courses galore and wineries aplenty. And all within a 90-minute drive of Melbourne. Choose from unique conference and meeting spaces including traditional styles and settings with a difference. There are grand hotels, almost-on-the beach function centres and plenty of outdoor and flexible spaces to suit groups of every size and shape. The twin towns of Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale are your gateway to a plethora of make-your-day activities your team will love experiencing.
