A town in Victoria, Australia which is often subjected to prejudice from cretins who shat themselves when they entered Norlane, ran off, and thus formed their half-arsed opinions based on those experiences.
Contrary to somewhat popular belief, the town is not filled with racist right-wing hicks. If it was, then Melbourne would be the Nashville of Australia.
Of course, like every town, it has it's bad eggs. According to the Victoria Police Crime Statistics, Aug 2008, more than half of the municipalities in Victoria half a worse assault rate per 100,000 people per year than Geelong. For example, Geelong's rate is 559 assaults per year per 100,000 people. The Melbourne CBD rate is 2628.7.
Part of the reason that Geelong's "ghetto lifestyle" has been publicized is because of the Geelong Advertizer in association with The Herald Sun, both News Corp. owned, know that fear and social prejudice sell. Unfortunately, some people are still blinded to Murdoch's tricks.
The real problem with Geelong is (to paraphrase The Clash) are the bourgeois cunts (yes, not every in Geelong is working class, not that that's something shameful) who, instead of feeling bad and trying to help the disadvantaged in the town, make fun. That and the tossers who live in Geelong who call the town a shit hole, then vandalize it beyond recognition. The same can be said for many towns, mind you.
All in all, Geelong is a decent town to live in, one that is constantly expanding and welcomes it. ...
A small town in Victoria known for an Australian Rules Football Club whose moniker arose from a black cat that apparently brought the team some luck in the 1920's.
The town is also famous for its 'bogans', though these populate the towns north - an area closest to the Bogan Capital of Melbourne. The central suburbs of Geelong are highly affluent and characterised by families who send their children to over-priced schools such as Geelong Grammar and Geelong College. Everyone one else in Geelong is Catholic; their children attending single-sex schools such as St Joseph's and St Mary's.
The town is considered a 'great place to bring up children'. This is another way of saying that parents in the town feel they don't have to worry too much about their children in such a 'safe town'. This wonderful myth and parental apathy extends into the child's adolescence, where the 'youth' of Geelong are free to run wild and experiment heavily. Interesting sub-cultures are often created in the process, before the late-adolescent Geelong person is old enough to leave the town (usually as soon as possible) for a real city.
Those who escape the town usually have a wonderful sense of humour, become incredibly successful, and feel a continuing sense of empathy toward black cats and the Geelong Football Club. They also become over-protective parents.

A small city about 45 minutes from Melbourne. Mainly made up of suburbs populated by unsophisticated and intolerant white people (see hicks
). The waterfront has some nice restaurants but other than that it's boring. The younger population are especially unintelligent compared to other cities - they all dress, talk, and act in the same retarded manner. Overall Geelong is nothing special. People who actually like this city probably don't know any better.

Geelong local: Yerrr Geelong is fully sick mate!!
