Geelong's waterfront playground is the only place to be when the sun is shining. Built in the 1930s, it's as popular today as it was nearly a century ago, and it's not hard to see why — the beachside reserve boasts lush green areas with barbecue facilities and undercover picnic tables, a historic fountain, public artworks and the city's famous ferris wheel.

The centrepiece is the semi-circular, double-platform wooden promenade, one of Geelong's most recognisable sites. The 200-metre boardwalk encloses more than eight acres of seawater, and also features diving towers, slides and swimming pontoons, making it an ideal spot for a day by the water.
