Eastern Beach Reserve Swimming Enclosure (Geelong)




On the east side of Geelong on Corio bay is the magnificent Art Deco masterpiece, Eastern Beach. It has been a favorite destination for families since opening in the late 1930s. Eastern Beach was fully restored during the 1990's as the first part of the Waterfront precinct rejuvenation.

The swimming enclosure is one of Geelong's most known icons, this huge double platform wooden structure complete with shark gate sweeps in a half circle around 8 1/2 acres of sea water. The enclosure has diving board and floating islands and can hold thousands of swimmers, with a nice sandy beach backing onto the children's pool.

The children's pool is a shallow cement pool which includes a magnificent fountain in the centre. The pool has been an important learn to swim centre for the city for decades and is very busy on warm days.

Eastern Beach has a beautiful red brick art deco kiosk building which is home to one of the city's finest dining experiences, and a large al fresco dining area out the front. The kiosk also sells plenty of ice cold drinks and ice creams for visitors to the beach. The paved area is also home to a lovely lifesavers and change pavilion with red terracotta tiles. A huge playground for the young is on the east side in the parkland and is a favorite all year round.

Rising to the Eastern Beach road above is one of Geelong's most striking architectural features, A white Spanish staircase, they are quiet spectacuar and offer amazing views of the Eastern Beach promenade and Corio Bay. At the half way point there is a large fountain with crane and tortoise statues. These are replicas of the originals which now live in the Botanical Gardens for safe keeping.
