As Victoria’s largest regional town, there are loads of shopping options in Geelong.

The central city area has a high concentration of malls with major department stores and chains, as well as a good mix of speciality shops and independent boutiques.

There are fairly large-scale shopping centres in major suburbs such as Belmont, Waurn Ponds and Corio. 

Pakington Street, running through Newtown and Geelong West, is vibrant and fashionable. Shops here tend to be independent and perfect for finding on-trend fashion or unique homewares.
