This is a great opportunity to step back in time and have a tour guide that can bring it to life. Had it not been for a ‘sandbar’ running across the bay from Point Henry, preventing many ships from sailing into Geelong, it would more than likely have become the capital of Victoria. It was a time when the ‘goldfields’ were also opening up in Western Victoria and the journey there was a lot quicker than from Melbourne. The Wool growing industry was rapidly growing and evidence of that still exists on our journey.
On our stroll we will see some of the many landmarks Geelong is known for. Including, the painted Bollards which line the Bay, Deakin Waterfront Campus which was one of the original wool storage and handling facilities in Geelong. We visit the original Geelong railway station , the stunning and award winning library, law courts, the Geelong Arts precinct, the Wool museum and Customs House. You will learn of many of the ships and schooners that sailed into Geelong.
