Overview

Public art

Discover the wealth of public art works along the Geelong waterfront from the whimsical Baywalk Bollards to the Cargo Boxes and Paving Splats.

Baywalk Bollards

Over 100 sculptured bollards are installed around the Geelong waterfront. The bollards chronicle characters from the city's past and present, including dapper young ladies in neck-to-knee bathing costumes, 1930s lifesavers, a Geelong footballer, jaunty sailors, fishermen and a town band.

Cargo Boxes

Cargo Boxes (2000) by Maggie Fookes and Bill Perrin are a series of brass and glass boxes containing sculptures and artefacts recognising early imports into Geelong. Internal lighting creates a stunning night feature.

Paving Splats

Paving Splats (2000) by Maffie Fooke and Bill Perrin, are 'splattered' around the central Waterfront precinct as pavement inlays. The splats are made of stainless steel with cast inlays depicting imported and locally made objects.

Barcode Fountain

The Barcode Fountain incorporates a barcode from a truly original and surviving Geelong iconic product: Noddy's Soft Drink. The barcode is reproduced on the stainless steel panels of the feature which also incorporates strip lighting.

North

North, by Mark Stoner (2000) consists of seven cement objects resembling sails or fins that vary in size from 2.2 to 3.5 metres high. No two fins are positioned on the same plane and by moving within and around the sculpture the profiles change quite dramatically.

Street art

Geelong is a city alive with colour. Stroll from corner to corner through central Geelong and see the countless murals, paste-ups and stencils bringing urban spaces to life. With a local program pioneered by local boy and world-renowned street artist RONE encouraging artist engagement, and the Powerhouse Museum championing the art form, Geelong is fast becoming a hotbed of new talent.
