Highlights

Geelong and the Bellarine

Overview

Events

Attend high profile festivals and community events across the Geelong and Bellarine region and enjoy everything from world-class cycling races and music festivals to fine wines, local delicacies and aerial acrobatics.

Blue skies, blue water

In Geelong see stunning aerobatics at the Australian International Airshow or watch colourful spinnakers fly on Corio Bay in Geelong during the Festival of Sails – Australia's largest regatta.

Race for the prize

Cyclists will love the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, with its concept inspired by the prestigious Spring Classics of Europe. Get your lycra on and join in or watch from the sidelines as the race weaves its way across the peninsula from Geelong to Barwon Heads and then on down to Torquay and Bells Beach.

Festival fun

Cruise into Queenscliff in November for a rollicking weekend of music from local and international stars. Join over 100,000 people at Geelong's Pako Festa, a heady mix of international food, parades, folk dancing, workshops, exhibitions and loads of other free activities. June on the Bellarine Peninsula brings with it the National Celtic Festival, with all the colour and fun of Celtic dancing, music, drummers and pipers.

Surf, sun and seafood

Celebrate summer the Portarlington way at the Portarlington Mussel Festival, with fresh seafood and local wines, music and lots of fun for the kids. Sample the region's finest reds, whites and rosés at Toast to the Coast, held at wineries in The Bellarine, Moorabool Valley and the Surfcoast.
