District Governor’s Welcome


John Pohl 2

It is with pleasure I invite you to experience a ‘Sea Change in Geelong’, the heart of the Bellarine District of Victoria from 23-26 March 2017.

Our Conference Committee has put together an exciting program of thought-provoking and entertaining speakers and entertainment in a unique venue – The Pier. This function centre at end of the Cunningham Pier takes you out into Corio Bay for a spectacular conference experience.

As you approach the conference hall, you will be met with a gallery of Rotary Showcase displays highlighting Rotary local and international programs as well as local Geelong exhibitors

Geelong is a vibrant city and has a wealth of venues just waiting for your visit. The Australian TV series ‘Sea Change’ was filmed at Barwon Heads, a quick 25 minute drive from Geelong and is a fascinating trip down memory lane for film buffs. Geelong is an ideal springboard for exploring the many sights and venues around the Bellarine Peninsula area.

Why not make this ‘Sea Change in Geelong’ a memorable holiday. It is all here, great accommodation, great venue, sightseeing, inspirational speakers, top class food and above all, enjoyment and fellowship.

See you there

John Pohl
District Governor 2016 – 17
