Soak up the atmosphere of a buzzing live music and lively pub scene in Geelong's city centre. Unwind at a beachfront bar as the sun goes down, or get your party shoes on and dance the night away at a popular club.
On with the show
Get your culture fix at the Geelong Performing Arts Centre and choose from a world-class program of music, theatre, comedy and dance. Spend Saturday nights aboard the Blues Train, a quintessentially Queenscliff experience that combines beautiful scenery, a vintage steam train, and rollicking live music. Learn Irish step dancing at Portarlington's National Celtic Festival or settle in for a weekend of great music and headline acts at the Queenscliff Music Festival.
Throw down a bet with some friends at the track, watch the greyhounds in action, or head to the speedway for a night of hi-octane thrills and spills.
There's no shortage of sporting action in Victoria's second largest city, Geelong. Cheer on local basketball heroes in the Geelong Arena and soak up the atmosphere at an Australian Rules football match starring the Geelong Cats, one of the country's finest teams and national champions in 2009 and 2011.
Stars and strikes
For a bit of family fun, catch the latest release movies at a local cinema, get a crew together for some ten pin bowling, or hit the bingo parlour for a whole lot of laughs and prizes. For a dose of summer excitement, make a dash to the water slides of Adventure Park in Wallington, Victoria's biggest theme park.
