A guided walk through an important period in Geelong’s development.
Presented by Geelong and Region Branch of the National Trust (Victoria)
Geelong’s 20th Century public and commercial architecture still flourishes in the CBD – if you know what to look for. This walk will show you how to see 20th Century style from Art Nouveau and Art Deco to Moderne; there are many outstanding examples, including the T&G Building.
Dress for the weather; wear walking shoes, a hat and bring a water bottle.
Your guides will reveal Geelong’s 20th Century CBD architecture.
Meeting at Percy Everett’s Rotunda in Johnstone Park, we move to the significant State Offices. The Gallery in Little Malop St displays Moderne style, but the Court House in Gheringhap St (Percy Everett again) is pure Art Deco. The Telephone Exchange adjoining shows high-value public architecture.
In Ryrie, Moorabool and Malop Streets we can see from the upper floors that shop owners in the 20th Century varied their design styles. However, few street-level shop fronts have survived.
