Geelong will transform into a motoring lovers paradise on the last weekend of November when the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival returns to our spectacular waterfront.


In the tradition of the Geelong Speed Trials, the Geelong Revival has been an annual event on Geelong’s calendar since 2012, adding to an already impressive range of automotive events. The Geelong Revival has something for anyone from the true car enthusiast to someone who has a fleeting interest in the car and the culture associated with it. The entire waterfront comes alive with car displays, retro caravans, music, motorcycles fashion parades, food and motoring themed vendors.

The highlight of the event is the incredible speed trials, Richie Boulevard transforms into a race strip where vehicles from all eras of motoring history battle it out in a series of quarter mile speed trials. The sight, smells and sounds are thrilling, with incredible views available on the lush grass overlooking the track.

For car enthusiasts, expect to see the unexpected there will be some of the most exotic and rarest cars in Australia on display as well as a wide range of favourites and classics. The event is free and there are ticketed areas including a VIP area and the pits where visitors can get up close to many of the amazing vehicle and even meet the drivers and crew.
