Geelong and The Bellarine is one region with two distinct ‘personalities’. The City of Geelong has emerged from a manufacturing town to be reinvented as a city with an enviable lifestyle.  As Geelong moved further away from its industrial past once manufacturing spaces and warehouses have been reinvented into hip new cafes, bars, restaurants, accommodation and attractions.  This transformation is very evident on the vibrant waterfront that has become the ideal backdrop for a sparkling events calendar that makes Geelong an ideal destination to explore. There’s a magnetic charm about the Geelong waterfront and the views are compelling. Here the Baywalk Bollard Trail stretches along the waterfront featuring over a hundred characters which have shaped Geelong’s history.


Thanks to its fresh sea air, white beaches and buzzing arts community along with the nearby Otways and a relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere, Lorne has been attracting eager holidaymakers for more than a century.

Mount Gambier South Australia

Mount Gambier is a place where you will find unforgettable experiences and create unique memories. Around every corner there is a tale to be told, from shipwrecks to saints, the antics of those who lived in this area with fortitude and humour. The same spirit remains in this vibrant community that welcomes visitors as friends.


Coonawarra is nestled in the heart of the Limestone Coast of South Australia. Located approximately 380km south of Adelaide, 427km west of Melbourne, its a comfortable half-day drive from the two bustling capital cities.

The unique cigar-shaped strip of rich terra rossa soil that defines the region is a one-of-a-kind narrow ridge of earth, just 27 kilometres long and two clicks wide, is known for producing incomparable red wines – in particular, Cabernet Sauvignon.

The famed Coonawarra Strip, as it is known, is home to more than 25 cellar doors, offering an array of food and wine experiences.

From light bites and casual platters to formal dining in our boutique restaurants, the region places great emphasis on showcasing premium local produce alongside its award-winning wines.

Victor Harbour

People come here to Victor Harbor to be immersed in the best South Australia has to offer. To catch a glimpse of wildlife from the shore. To relive their childhood summers. To stand on the very soil where history happened. And what they feel—rejuvenation, adventure, reflection—forever connects them to this wondrously one-of-a-kind place where the hum of community meets the stillness of the sea.

Victor Harbor is the vibrant, creative heart of our Fleurieu, circulating the currents that course through our peninsula. This is a place brimming with life and culture, inviting you to come and experience it for yourself.
