Geelong is classified as a ‘cool climate’ wine region which inherently provides an extended ripening period. Cool climate wines are recognised as the best in the world. The Geelong region boasts a winning combination of rich ‘terroir’ (the overall growing environment of the vine that has a direct impact on a wine’s character) and a cool climate, similar to the renowned French wine regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy.
The National Wool Museum was established in Geelong, Victoria in 1988 as part of the Australian Bicentennial Celebrations. It is housed in the former Dennys, Lascelles Ltd wool store at 26 Moorabool Street, Geelong.
Adventure Park is Victoria's biggest water theme park. The park contains many attractions such as numerous water slides and water playgrounds.
