I love heading down to Eastern Beach every time I head to Geelong. It reminds me of a simpler time, a place to go with your family for a swim and a play on the play ground and an ice cream cone. The facilities here are amazing with plenty to do and see.

It is obvious that a great deal of thought has gone into the landscaping and design of the waterfront to provide a beautiful, utilitarian area for the use of visitors. We were extremely impressed and would come again. Dinner on the waterfront was highlighted by the Christmas Tree in the water providing a spectacular display. Great atmosphere for children and...

Love this place! Great for a run or walk with a good pathway to make use of. Pretty views which are as lovely at sunrise as they are at sunset. The pier is really pretty as well.

Plenty of activities compressed into a short walking distance. We were lucky enough to be there to see the famous floating christmas tree light up in all its glory.

Pleasant walk and scenery ranging from the promenade at Eastern beach, to the foreshore near the yacht club, and along to the carousel and restaurants at the pier.

Similar to other beaches, this one also has sand, water, sun, wind and people. But it's different too and lovely tho. The street sculptures are great, but it's the vintage sea "baths" that are the main drawcard. The art deco buildings and fountain are fabulous - you should visit for them alone - but take a walk along the double-decker... More

A gorgeous place to spend a Christmas-time day, walking in the summer sun and eating at the famous boat house restaurant. A great place to visit.

Restful area with good restaurants and sculptures. Many of the original homes have been preserved and offer an insight into early architecture. The views of the bay are lovely.
