On arrival in Melbourne Airport, proceed to the Hertz Rental Counter to collect your car and travel south west from Melbourne on the Princes Highway to Geelong, the largest provincial city in Victoria (Optional: Werribee Open Range Zoo, an African themed zoo). The City of Geelong has emerged from a manufacturing town to be reinvented as a city with an enviable lifestyle. This transformation is very evident on the vibrant waterfront that has become the ideal backdrop for a sparkling events calendar that makes Geelong an ideal destination to explore. There’s a magnetic charm about the Geelong waterfront and the views are compelling.
