The Carousel

About The Carousel

Come and spend some magical time at the beautifully restored Carousel at the Geelong Waterfront.

The Carousel is an ideal accessible meeting place for the community, and we take pride in providing a memorable experience for all ages and abilities.

This has been made possible with improved access to the pavilion and the welcome installation of a mobility lift and recharge point. The mobility lift enabled a wheelchair to go on the Carousel ride and was specially designed to respect and complement the history of the Carousel.

Geelong’s beautiful waterfront carousel is truly one of the jewels of Geelong; it is one of the “must-see” attractions for any visitor to our magnificent city. Proudly overlooking the harbour with spectacular views out to Corio Bay, the modern sail-like steel and glass pavilion glistens in the sun and is a striking focal point of our waterfront precinct.


What to do at The Carousel

Boasting 36 beautifully restored and crafted horses, the Carousel stands as a testament to the hard work of dedicated artisans. It took an impressive two-year journey for these craftsmen to recover this carousel from Castlemaine’s Victorian gold district before carefully restoring each horse with over 300 man hours put into 24 original pieces – 12 additional replicas were made using traditional processes that included sourcing real coach wood from America in order to create authentic matching designs. Today, this stunningly beautiful ride is ready for its admirers!

Enjoy a moment of nostalgia when you visit the wonderful carousel in Geelong! Not only beloved by children, but this piece of yesteryear is also perfect for parties and wedding receptions. Snap special memories with free entry to the pavilion, or take it up a notch – hop onboard and enjoy an enchanting ride on this beautiful vintage attraction at an affordable price point. A disabled lift makes sure everyone can get on board without any hassle too!
