With a recorded population of 5210 residents, Geelong is located approximately 64kms from the capital Melbourne. Located on Corio Bay, Geelong is Victoria’s second largest city and it falls within the Australian Eastern Daylight Time zone Australia/Melbourne. The city with a rich cultural heritage is the gateway to the popular Great Ocean Road and is within a short drive from famous beach-front communities on the Bellarine Peninsula. The Barwon River, which is a perennial river of the Corangamite catchment, flows through Geelong and its surrounding suburbs, adjoined by a number of beautiful parks and the picturesque Buckley Falls in Fyansford. The city takes immense pride in having a large commercial centre that extends down the foreshore, where visitors can enjoy scenic beach-front attractions such as the Steampacket Gardens and the Eastern Beach. Other locations of interest for visitors include a number of historical buildings, galleries, the Botanic Gardens at Eastern Park, the National Wool Museum, the Old Geelong Gaol and a number of other museums.
