The Geelong Revival returns to Geelong’s waterfront November 27th to 29th in what will be a massive weekend of motoring. The event now in fourth year builds on the heritage and spirit of the Geelong Speed Trials that were a prominent event on our watefront for decades.


The event has grown stronger ever year and this year promises plenty of new surprises. As well as the roar of engines from a wide range of current and classic vehicles sprinting down Richie Boulevard the event will see a city cruise, huge motorshow spanning the entire waterfront precinct, fashion parades and some wonderful entertainment. Divinyls tribute band Temperamental, Sammy Ownes Blues Band are two of the great acts performing during the festival.

This year the vehicle displays extend to motorcycles and vintage caravans and there will be a massive expo on Steampacket Gardens and the Eastern Beach lawns.

Entry to the Geelong Revival is free, and there will be plenty of magnificent places to view the sprinting on the grassy rise above Richie Boulevard. For those wanting to make their experience even better there is a VIP ticketed area and the chance to visit the vehicle in Pit Lane.

Kicking of the festival, there will be a city cruise that starts at the Geelong Museum of Motoring and Industries at North Geelong. The drive then travel through Batesford and Ceres before meeting at the Deakin Waterfront carpark in the city around 8:00 PM. Moorabool Street and Geelong’s waterfront around Cunningham Pier will be the best vantage points for spectators who will get to see an expected 500 plus incredible vehicles.

The event is expected to attract over 40,000 people so shuttle busses will run between the Geelong Railway Station and the Limeburner’s Point Boat ramp between 6:00 AM and 7:00 PM to make it a little easier to reach the festival.
