“Great for families.”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

I reside in Geelong and have visited Eastern Beach on many occasions, it is very family and child friendly with large open grass areas where there are BBQ's to use. It is lovely to walk the promenade when it is warm and to swim in the ocean as well. It is central to everything including the Geelong CBD area, its a 5 minute walk up the hill to cafes and bars. It offers a great playground and an awesome place to exercise, you will often see walkers, cyclists and other individuals using the pathway for their daily dose of sun and exercise. This is somewhere I would recommend anybody to visit.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Loved walking along the beach. Interesting all the way with things to see along the waterfront. The painted bollards alone are worth the walk to see all 104 of them!

“Lovely Eastern Beach”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

I feel so lucky to have Eastern Beach in my home town. I always say when I am there that we don't realise how good it is. If it were in Melbourne you would never be able to get a spot because it would be so crowded. The free pools are great, it is picturesque, the cafe and restaurant are lovely and the kids park is exceptional.

“Enjoyable stroll”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The perfect place to talk a walk with your loved ones, especially on a great, sunny day. There are lots of places to take photos here. Don't forget to spot the wooden statues and try out the many eateries you encounter on your walks.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

There is plenty going on in Geelong at Eastern Beach
The whole family can enjoy a stroll along the foreshore, take photos of and with the painted bollards, walk along the wharf ( we saw dolphins ). and buy your traditional fish and chips at the end.
Good family entertainment and relaxation
