Wangim Walk Wave Attenuator

Geelong’s new $10.1 million, 440m Wave Attenuator is now open, being a major milestone in the Geelong Waterfront Safe Harbour Precinct Project.

Named after the Wadawurrung language for Boomerang, Wangim Walk stretches out over Corio Bay to form one of Australia’s longest on-water walkways, providing safe harbour to the Royal Geelong Yacht Club and allowing the public to walk on water.

Funded under the $370 million Geelong City Deal, this project is funded and supported by the Australian Federal Government, Victorian State Government and City of Greater Geelong as well as the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.

Wangim Walk is protected with a safety gate installed at the start of the landmark, allowing the attraction to be closed when the weather turns dangerous.

 

Opening Hours

6am to 10pm, pending weather conditions.
