How long have you lived in Geelong and what drew you to the area? I was born and raised in Geelong and the surrounding area, with most of my extended family still in the Geelong region. I left after Uni to pursue my engineering career and chose to return to Geelong after a short stint in Tasmania about 6 years ago. Sometimes you don’t realise what you miss until you leave and come back and Geelong is on the doorstep to so much.
Where’s the best place to get lunch? This all depends on what you want from lunch! A long afternoon at a Peninsula winery is pretty good.
Your go-to coffee haunt? I like my coffee, but I don’t have a regular. That said I do tend to bypass that unique Geelong phenomena that is the drive through coffee shop. Not because of the coffee itself, but because I’d rather enjoy it from somewhere other than the inside of my car!
What’s your favourite local day-trip in the region? At the moment, anywhere along the coast that I can take the dog for a walk along the beach. She loves it as much as I do and there’s plenty of options.
What are your summertime plans? It will be a family and friends driven summer break this year given the last 18 months have limited our ability to properly catch-up. So probably staying near home and enjoying the local area.
