Geelong’s laneways culture is thriving with visitors enjoying the new alfresco spaces, trees, public art and improved lighting at the western end of Little Malop Street.

Funded by the Victorian Government and the City of Greater Geelong, the upgrade includes a greater number of outdoor eating options, a projection wall with opportunities for installations and exciting street art – along with trees and planter boxes that all contribute to the enjoyment of this thriving city hub.

The project has created a vibrant laneways experience and an extension to Geelong’s exciting cultural precinct. Theatre patrons and art aficionados are loving the chance to enjoy the restaurants, cafes and bars before or after a seeing a show at GPAC or an exhibition at the Geelong Gallery. The laneways are also building a reputation as an entertainment precinct and a magnet for music-lovers seeking a dose of live music.

If you fancy sampling the perfect coffee, a superb glass of vino, a meal to remember, or simply experiencing an eclectic mix of traders, Geelong’s laneways will be at the top of your destination list.

The laneways are bustling day and night and this cosmopolitan precinct rivals Melbourne’s popular laneways, and adds to the many reasons to live in, work in or visit central Geelong.
