Geelong Public Art

Discover the wealth of public art works along the Geelong waterfront from the whimsical Baywalk Bollards to the Cargo Boxes and Paving Splats.

Baywalk Bollards
Over 100 sculptured bollards are installed around the Geelong waterfront. The bollards chronicle characters from the citys past and present, including dapper young ladies in neck-to-knee bathing costumes, 1930s lifesavers, a Geelong footballer, jaunty sailors, fishermen and a town band.

Cargo Boxes
Cargo Boxes (2000) by Maggie Fookes and Bill Perrin are a series of brass and glass boxes containing sculptures and artefacts recognising early imports into Geelong. Internal lighting creates a stunning night feature.

Paving Splats
Paving Splats (2000) by Maffie Fooke and Bill Perrin, are splattered around the central Waterfront precinct as pavement inlays. The splats are made of stainless steel with cast inlays depicting imported and locally made objects.

Barcode Fountain
The Barcode Fountain incorporates a barcode from a truly original and surviving Geelong iconic product: Noddys Soft Drink. The barcode is reproduced on the stainless steel panels of the feature which also incorporates strip lighting.

North
North, by Mark Stoner (2000) consists of seven cement objects resembling sails or fins that vary in size from 2.2 to 3.5 metres high. No two fins are positioned on the same plane and by moving within and around the sculpture the profiles change quite dramatically.
