I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.

There is so much to see and do in Geelong. From School Holiday programs to lots of activities, there really is a lot around Geelong for your children to get involved in.

For the working parents, the School Holiday Programs are a great option to make sure your children are entertained and well cared for, while you are working.

If you're not working and have the luxury of taking your children out to activities, there is also a lot of events happening in Geelong. See if you can fit some of them into the two weeks of school holidays.
