Overview

Boating & sailing

Set off on a voyage by sea and discover the hidden gems of a region blessed with a charming coastal location and bountiful boating opportunities.

Head to bustling Queenscliff Harbour and hop aboard a scenic charter boat ride into Port Phillip Bay, take a vessel out to a deserted island for the ultimate picnic experience or book a guided tour and let someone else navigate The Rip, considered one of the most treacherous stretches of water in the world.

Marine life

Join a tour and cruise out across the waters of Port Phillip Bay. Breathe in the fresh sea air and get up close to all manner of marine life, including dolphins, fur seals, albatrosses and penguins, all in their natural environment.

Festival of Sails

Book your holiday to coincide with the ever-popular Festival of Sails, running since 1844. Watch from Geelong's stunning waterfront as the colourful spinnakers fly on Corio Bay and join in the festivities during Australia's largest regatta.
