Festival Dates 26-28 January, 2018


Geelong is extremely busy over the Festival Of Sails period and therefore we encourage you book your accommodation early.

Geelong has a wide variety of accommodation many of which are walking distance to the Festival of Sails event. A great resource for finding accommodation is the Tourism Geelong & Bellarine website, which includes all surrounding districts including the Great Ocean Road, our famous surf beaches like Torquay (20km), Barwon Heads (28km), Ocean Grove (26km), Point Lonsdale (30km) and bay side resorts like Portarlington (26km).

We also have an extensive list of accommodation options below, with details and websites linked for your convenience.
