Leura Park Estate Vineyard established in 1995 and located on 150 acres, Leura Park Estate is a renowned producer of premium maritime climate wines, 100% estate grown and predominantly hand-picked. As a James Halliday 5-star Australian Wine Companion, Leura Park winery specialises in Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Sparkling’s, renowned Pinot Noir, and acclaimed Pinot Gris (25 d’Gris).
Geelong Waterfront Tours set off from Steampacket Gardens, not far from the Carousel, and near the coloured Buoys. These tours cover the beautiful Corio Bay and start in the Steampacket Gardens running along the Waterfront, then into Eastern Park for a lap of the “tan.”
Marketing and advertising include Facebook, What’s on Magazine, and running newspaper and magazine ads. Word of mouth generates business, and customers seeing it for themselves at the Waterfront in Geelong while tours are taking place. Photos are posted on the Facebook page for every tour to encourage return customers. Leura Park includes Segway Geelong when they advertise the restaurant and winery tours.
Peak times are from November to March, with January being the busiest month. Busy times are from August to October and April to May, with quieter months during winter from June to August.
