Geelong

Cunningham Pier

Arrive in Victoria via Geelong's Cunningham Pier and quickly become acquainted with Victoria's second largest city and the iconic Great Ocean Road beyond it.

On the waterfront
Just a few minutes walk from the Geelong city centre, Cunningham Pier is an attraction in itself. The iconic building at the end of the pier houses an elegant brasserie and a bar with views to savour.

The rejuvenated waterfront area will account for many hours of sightseeing thanks to a handful of cafes and restaurants, the Art deco sea baths and the yacht club marina. Highlights along the promenade are the colourful curved bollards paying homage to the city's historical characters.

Geelong and beyond
Half and full day shore excursions will allow you to explore the city's 100 National Trust listed buildings and its history as a wool shipping port. Take in a vibrant festival from the rich calendar of cultural and sporting events. Travel out of town and into the Geelong wine region and discover rich contrasts of natural beauty and acclaimed wines.

The Great Ocean Road
Take advantage of Geelong's proximity to the Great Ocean Road, one of the world's most scenic drives along kilometres of pristine beaches between dramatic cliffs and tranquil mountainsides. Make a beeline for the 12 Apostles, a series of huge rock stacks that rise majestically from the Southern Ocean. Take a helicopter ride over the famous natural wonders for a truly unforgettable experience.

Transport can be arranged from the cruise ship terminal to both the city centre and to Melbourne International Airport, and a meet and greet service can be arranged.
