Eastern Beach strollers.
Dalgety’s Woolstore was one of
the many wool receiving facilities
in Geelong around fifty years ago.

These lifesaver bollards are but a few

They adorn the Waterfront end of Moorabool Street,
Geelong’s main street.
Two blocks up the hill, on the horizon,
and you are in the heart of thee Central Business District.

there shopping complexes springing up
about twenty minutes drive away.
The better parking facilities attract many locals
and we do not venture into the CBD unless necessary.
