Is this the best beach destination for kids? With a gorgeous FREE circular children’s swimming pool, numerous beach spots perfect for wading and sand castles, a great playground, grassy picnic spots, the promenade...seriously it doesn’t get much better! Mamma says Geelong’s Eastern Beach is a wonderful sunny day destination – midweek it can be a quiet place for you to relax and unwind with your pre-schooler and weekends you’ll find it teeming with kids of all ages diving and swimming in the protected waterfront with their families lounging and relaxing.
It has a somewhat historical seaside feel to it too – so leave all your city worries behind and go on a little holiday trip to Geelong.
Oh and be warned you will want to keep coming back to explore all along the shoreline. It is picture perfect.
Mamma’s special mentions: The Hilite - Giant Ferris Wheel operates here during the Summer months until April 30 and is great fun! wanna know more? click here Or if you are up for a little stroll then head to the other end of the waterfront to the Poppy Kettle Playground.
the nitty gritty
toilets - pram access - lots of shade for the playground - no shade on the pool - picnic areas - park benches - cafe (currently closed)
