Geelong: Historical Walking Tour

Geelong was once regarded in the mid-1800s as the wool capital of the world, and wherever you go there is evidence of that. This is especially the case on and near the waterfront.

There will be many stories. Learn why there is a rabbit painted on 'nearly' every bollard, and why there is a black ball sitting on top of the Old Telegraph

Station. Drop into the Old Wool Store, and then check out the Geelong Mural. It is the first mosaic mural to depict a regional history. Since it is virtually indestructible you can touch it.

This is a fascinating look back in time and one they are sure you will always remember. The tour concludes back at The Carousel and by then, you will be ready to call into one of the many waterfront cafes and restaurants for a bite to eat.

Some of the places you will see: The Carousel and Bollards, inside the original Wool Store, Heritage Railway Station, The Geelong Mosaic or the viewing platform at Geelong Library, The Old Telegraph Station and the first Australian automated Telephone Exchange, the new Arts Precinct, Wol Museum, and Customs House.
