Discovering Geelong

Geelong is the second largest city in the state of Victoria (Australia) and has one of the country's most dynamic city centres. The city's landscaped foreshore, The Waterfront is absolutely beautiful. It is one of the few facing north in Victoria, overlooking Corio Bay. The attractions along The Waterfront include The Cunningham Pier, the Baywalk Bollards and restored historic buildings.

Deakin University's School of Architecture and Building is in an historic woolstore building along the waterfront, located along Western Beach. The building was smartly adapted and re-used to house the School. Old wooden beams were left whenever possible and thus became architectural details enhancing the School's studio ambience.

The School's Gallery on the fifth level boasts of a magnificent view of the Waterfront and Cunningham Pier.
