Melbourne

Melbourne to Laverton is 23 kilometres

Melbourne is Victoria’s capital and provides non-stop activity and 24 hour entertainment. There is an almost endless range of places to eat, things to do and places to go. Melbourne is renowned for its quality restaurants, theatres, galleries, museums, shopping, gardens and major attractions.

Laverton

Laverton to Werribee is 12 kilometres

About 18km south-west of Melbourne, Laverton is home to a big RAAF base, and locals claim that you just have to see both the RAAF Museum and nearby Point Cook Coastal Park. The park itself provides a variety of experiences for visitors, including bird watching at Spectacle Lake, scenic walks and breathtaking views from The Tower - a viewing platform for the ecologically fragile Cheetham wetlands. The RAAF Museum, as a fully-operational flying unit, allows visitors to watch pilots and technicians at work and inspect the wide range of aircraft on display.

Laverton is part of the Werribee commuter community which has developed round the core of Werribee Park - a vast private estate which was the family seat of the Chirnside brothers, who owned vast pastoral tracts in the Western District. Based on a 60-room Italianate mansion the park is now owned by the Victorian Government and its gardens, wildlife reserve, picnic grounds, golf course and tennis courts are open to the public.

Werribee

Werribee to Geelong is 42 kilometres

Werribee and the greater region of Werribee Park offers visitors a wealth of activities and attractions that are easily accessible from Melbourne including Victoria’s Open Range Zoo, Werribee Park Mansion, Shadowfax Winery and the State Rose Garden.

The Chirnside family originally owned much of the Werribee Plains and built Werribee Park Mansion in the late 1870s, the largest private residence in Victoria. Today the mansion has become one of Victoria’s major tourist attractions and was bought by the State Government and restored to its original splendour so visitors can see just how one of Victoria’s richest and most privileged families lived. The 12 hectares of park include manicured gardens and a farm yard area complete with blacksmith facilities.

Activities and attractions:
  • Visit Werribee Park Mansion, Victoria’s finest colonial homestead and the state’s largest private residence
  • Inhale the perfume of 4,500 plants at the State Rose Garden (best in November to May)
  • Come face-to-face with giraffes, zebras, meerkats, wallabies and emus at Victoria’s Open Range Zoo
  • View the largest collection of military aircraft in the Southern Hemisphere at the Point Cook RAAF Museum
  • Watch migratory wading birds at the Point Cook Coastal Park in summer
  • Go walking in the You Yangs Regional Park

Geelong

Victoria's largest regional city has its own airport and offers you a picturesque waterfront, parks, gardens, beaches, great dining and plenty of shopping!

Geelong’s waterfront - uniquely facing north in Victoria - has an exciting array of restaurants, bars and attractions, from Cunningham Pier, past the Royal Geelong Yacht Club to Eastern Beach. The waterfront has undergone a $170 million redevelopment over the past five years. The landscaped foreshore contains several restored historic buildings which contain Deakin University and a world-class concert stage, Costa Hall.

Eastern Beach features a famous art-deco, bayside swimming pool complex, parklands, and restaurants. The nearby historic Botanic Gardens now include a new 21st Century Garden with native plants against a background of Australian colours. Smaller reserves and parks dot the foreshore and inner city Geelong.

The western end of Little Malop Street is the city’s cultural precinct, with fine cafés, studios, and art galleries all within walking distance including the Geelong Performing Arts Centre and the Geelong Art Gallery. Geelong's commercial and retail centre radiates out from Moorabool Street, the backbone of the town's 1838 survey. Major shopping centres such as Market Square and Westfield’s Bay City Plaza can be found close by.

Further south, past the home of the AFL Cats and Kardinia Swimming pool, the Barwon River offers both active and passive recreational opportunities and has picturesque paths extended right along both its banks for many kilometres.
