Things to do in Geelong with kids

Gee whiz, it’s Geelong! This town is right by the water, so kids can spend the day building sandcastles, paddling in the waves, or rockpool rambling!

But this is Victoria, which means that there are a host of other fun things to do with kids too! Those active kids have PLENTY to do, such as scaling the walls at the Rock Adventure Centre, or trying to beat that other team in the combat style Laser Strike Geelong.

Kids can learn all about fun facts at the many museums, from the fascinating National Wool Museum, to the Queenscliffe Maritime Museum, or explore the beauty of nature in the Geelong Botanic Gardens.

If you find there is too much to do in one day (and you might!) then Geelong also have great places to stay, like Eldorado Tourist Park. Get out and make it a weekend!

So let’s hear you say it – “Gee…we can’t wait to get to Geelong!” Neither can we! Have an amazing family day out!
