Australia Day inGeelonghas many activities organized by the various groups found throughoutGeelongbut the best one to attend is the Australia Day cruise held by….well, no one’s really sure! This event started ten years ago and continues to grow bigger every year as the word spreads and this year saw a fantastic number of cars and bikes fill theSt. Helenscar park beyond capacity! Cars came as far as the other side ofMelbourneto participate in this annual event which celebrates one of the many things that make us Aussies.
After checking out the cool rides and catching up with friends, the convoy of cars and bikes heads off for Portarlington, down on the Peninsular. After a short rest, be it at a pub or pie shop, the laid-back cruise makes its way along the foreshore to Queenscliff for another large and impromptu show of cars and bikes with a bite to eat in the main street. So if your Australia Day is lacking that injection of automotive stimulation, then mark this one down in your calendar for next year and get there early as parking will fill quick!
