Weekly Photo – The Geelong Waterfront and its Bollards

Geelong Bollard


If you take a stroll along the Geelong Waterfront you’ll notice painted bollard characters along the way.

Created by artist Jan Mitchell and made from bollards recovered from the Yarra Street Pier after it was destroyed by fire they depict the people, both famous and ordinary, who have a place in the history of Geelong.

This bollard, titled 1920’s Woman, is on Western Beach, the former lady’s swimming beach.  She represents a time when mixed bathing was prohibited.

    1. They are pretty cool. There is a leaflet from the council that explains who each one is and their contribution to Geelong.
