Feel like heading out after a few days with Mother Nature? Frock up and get ready for a night of fun-filled entertainment on the Great Ocean Road.
Spend Saturday nights aboard the Blues Train, a quintessentially Queenscliff experience that combines beautiful scenery, a vintage steam train, and rollicking live music.
Catch some of the country's biggest music stars at festivals up and down the coast. Join in the carnival atmosphere at the Lorne Performing Arts Festival in August, rock out at the Queenscliff Music Festival, or catch local and international musicians at the Falls Festival. Drive further along the south coast for a weekend of folk and country tunes in March at the renowned Port Fairy Folk Festival. Bring your guitar and join in the action.
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.
