Geelong, Australia Cruise Port

Geelong is a historically fascinating location including a tale of William Buckley, the 'wild white man' that survived false imprisonment and a prison escape into the Austalian wilderness by living with the Aborigine Wathaurong people who thought him to be a reincarnated member of their tribe. The waterfront port has a story of its own. Until 1996, Corio Bay's north shore was almost exclusively devoted to maritime and general industry. Since then a government project went into effect to make this port more family and tourist friendly.

The starting efforts of this project resulted in a New Deakin University campus, a restored Eastern Beach for families with children - tourists and locals alike, and new restaurants and waterfront promenades. Additional items to beautify this once industry only area include sculptures such as the Baywalk Bollards and other modern art, both on and in the ground. To give this area some flare the project committee approved the restoration and installation of a steam driven carousel pavilion, and the construction of luxury hotels and apartment buildings, plus the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. The project culminated at the end of the millennium with the reconstruction of the Steampacket Gardens for the holding of multi-purpose events and activities, the integration of the Eastern Beach Mineral Springs, and the beautification of the surrounding streets with new furniture, lighting, rebuilt roads and powerline relocation. Geelong no longer looks like it use to, and it is waiting for you to see.
