Discover Geelong’s remarkable 20th Century architecture.

Take advantage of these sunny early-winter days and discover Geelong’s remarkable 20th Century architecture in the CBD!! The 20th Century walking package is for all locals, visitors and tourists who are coming to/in Geelong!

Receiving great reviews, people love the pocket-sized booklet! It highlights the roles of Geelong’s 20th Century architects including Percy Everett who was the first architect trained by the Gordon Technical College. Percy Everett in 1934 went on to become the Chief Architect of the Victorian Public Works Department. In this role he oversaw the designs of public buildings throughout the State – schools, court houses, hospitals. The Former Geelong Court House and The Gordon’s Textile College date from this period of his work.

The CBD Walk takes one and a half – two hours, starting and ending in Johnstone Park at the Hitchcock Memorial Bandstand.

There is also a bonus list of 20th Century commercial, industrial and residential places to visit outside the CBD – discover the 20th Century in Geelong’s inner suburbs.
