Knowing your place neighbourhood walks

Knowing your place is about connecting with your neighbourhood by walking, riding, skipping, skating, pushing, scootering, rolling and finding interesting landmarks along the way.

We are developing a series of walks to explore your neighbourhood!

Being active pathways

'Active transport’ is about how you get about by walking, gopher, wheelchair, bicycle, scooter and pram and includes journeys to public transport.

The City of Greater Geelong is working on connecting the cycle/walking paths around the municipality.

Walking facts

  • Walking is not only good for physical health but for mental health as well

Join a walking group

If you would like a fun, social and easy way to get active why not join or start a local walking group. To find out where your nearest walking group is, or if you have some interesting stories to tell about the history of your neighbourhood please contact Amanda Stirrat at the City of Greater Geelong by email ([email protected]).
