Thumbnail Title Description

Celebrity Surfers

The best part of Bells Beach Pro is following the professional surfer match ups as they compete in many heats building up to the final. The venue hosts other events to fill downtime. Because the big waves also took the long weekend off there was a lot of downtime. We watched a mini competition between Australian celebrities, including rugby players, golfers, TV personalities and actors., 2/17/2006

Watching the action from Bells Beach gets you up close to the action. There was a music festival staged at the top the hill, 2/17/2006

Hall of Fame

Jack Eden Long Board The Surfing Hall of Fame and museum is located in Torquay and a great place to psych yourself up before hitting the world-class surfing only a few kilometres away. , 2/17/2006

Crash Test Dummy

While the surfing competition was delayed, we found other things to do in Geelong. The Ford museum has interesting displays including this crash test dummy kangaroo. I suspect this is the only car factory in the world that employs kangaroo crash test dummies. , 2/17/2006
