When great minds from different political backgrounds can work together the results are always good. The waterfront at Eastern beach Geelong is just that. A beautifully restored seaside promenade with excellent eateries, loads of parking and excellent facilities. Worth the leisurely drive from Melbourne.

A beautiful spot for walks with plenty of good cafes and restaurants. Geelong seems to have changed and is now a hot hipster spot. Great house prices too compared with Melbourne.
