Geelong Saleyards

The Geelong Saleyards permanently closed to the sale of sheep and cattle on 31 August 2017.

From 30 July 2018 the poultry sales no longer operate at the Geelong Saleyards.

We continue to work with representatives of the livestock transport industry to determine the future of the facility’s truck wash. The truck wash will remain open in the meantime.

Following the permanent closure of the Geelong Saleyards to the sale of sheep and cattle, the City commenced preparation of a draft Geelong Saleyards Precinct Plan in consultation with stakeholders. The plan will provide strategic direction for the future land use of the site. The community will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the draft plan.
