Geelong Bollard Trail Walk

Geelong is famous for its Bollards

Friday, 04 August 2017

Over 100 bollards are installed right around the Geelong Waterfront from Limeburner’s Point to Rippleside Park

Artist Jan Mitchell was commissioned by the City of Greater Geelong in 1995 to transform reclaimed timber pier pylons into these remarkable works of art.

Following the Bollard Trail, you will meet some of the unique characters who played a part in Geelong's history, including  a Koori family, dapper young ladies in neck-to-knee bathing costumes, 1930s lifesavers, a Geelong footballer, jaunty sailors, fishermen and a town band.

When you visit, don't forget your camera, you'll definitely want to put yourself into the bollards picture.

A book on the Baywalk Bollards is available for sale from the Carousel at the Waterfront.
