The Geelong & Region Branch of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) presents a booklet on Some Highlights of Geelong’s 20th Century Architecture.
Exercise your heritage interests in Australia’s UNESCO City of Design!
Take a self-guided walk through the CBD and enjoy Geelong’s outstanding 20th Century Architecture, from Beaux Arts to Brutalist, and from Art Deco to Streamlined Moderne. Meet an interesting array of architects.
The Highlights booklet was designed to support the Branch’s Geelong Design Week 2020 events, which were cancelled due to COVID-19. It is now available for you to enjoy. The package includes:
- A pocket-sized illustrative booklet Some Highlights of Geelong’s 20th Century Architecture showing buildings of interest on the CBD Walk, with map
- A listing of other interesting 20th Century areas and places beyond the CBD that you can visit by car; or walk around them in suburban sections.
The CBD 20th Century Walk begins and ends at the Hitchcock Memorial Bandstand in Johnstone Park. It will take you about one and a half to two hours. See outstanding 20th Century buildings in Little Malop, Gheringhap, Ryrie, Moorabool and Malop Streets from new street level angles.
Buy the 20th Century Architecture Tour Package for yourself ($8 including postage, plus 50c booking fee) or consider it as a gift for family and friends.
The booklet will be available to purchase from the district’s National Trust properties when they re-open. Scroll down for information on opening times.
