Things to see and do around Avalon
Avalon Airport hosts the Australian International Airshow every two years. The Airshow displays a wide mix of daredevil aerobatics, historical aircraft and re-enactments, and the showcasing of the very latest aerospace technology – this is an unmissable event.
Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles
A must see experience for anyone travelling to Victoria. The Great Ocean Road is a 243km road that stretches along the coastline of Victoria which includes the 12 apostles. The Great Ocean Road is perfect all year round, and a must see experience. Rent a car from Thrifty and take in the wonderful scenery, with the start of the Great Ocean Road in Torquay being on 30 minutes from Avalon Airport.
With your rental car, take a trip to see the beautiful Geelong waterfront. The region is characterised by the multi-award winning Waterfront overlooking Corio Bay, the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula, the Barwon River, You Yangs Regional Park, wetlands, beautiful parklands and wildlife sanctuaries. Geelong is also the gateway to the world renowned coastline of south-west Victoria via the Great Ocean Road.
