What a day trip to Geelong to visit some longtime supporters of 3KND. Listeners who have throughout the lockdown continued to engage our station which have been a delight. We caught up with Lyn at All Seasons Cafe then Carmen at the yacht club. We missed Evelyn through miscommunication which was sad but all in all a great day. The food and company was outstanding with Gypsy, Wendy and myself full of long stories as we drove back to Melbourne.
Geelong is Victoria's second largest city just south west of Melbourne and is the gateway to the famous Great Ocean Road, which begins just south of Geelong at Torquay. Best known for its Waterfront esplanade that lines the bay. The Esplanade features a 19th-century carousel, plus a curved art deco boardwalk and sea bath at Eastern Beach. Geelong also has a large collection of public art. Scattered throughout the city are the brightly coloured Bollards who highlight historic events and people who shaped the city.
The city also offers picturesque coastal walks, Botanic Gardens at Eastern Park and the Barwon River meanders through Geelong and its surrounding suburbs before reaching Bass Strait. The city's cultural precinct includes Geelong Gallery, the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre and the Geelong Performing Arts Centre. And of course Geelong is home to the Geelong Football Club. Carn’ the Cats!
Geelong is part of the traditional lands of the Wathaurung people and Aboriginal culture and community is strong and vibrant in Geelong.
With out community engagement KoolNDeadly would have no purpose. This is fundamental to our existence and something we value. We thank the Wathaurung nation for allowing us to journey through there country.
