The Geelong Camera Club prides itself on being an informal, enthusiastic and friendly club which extends a warm welcome to anyone with an interest in photography.

We meet every Wednesday night (with a short break over the Christmas, New Year season) at 7.30pm at our clubroom

Geelong Camera Club Inc, founded in 1889, is proud to be the longest continually operating club on the Australian mainland and currently has about 120 members.  

We offer an interesting and varied program throughout the year, including guest speakers, members evenings, regular competitions, practical sessions, weekend outings and Special Interest Groups. 

Club members vary from beginners to competent experts all with the aim of sharing knowledge, developing skills and participating in the practice and enjoyment of photography. 


Visitors and prospective members are always welcome to come along to our Meeting nights which are held 7.30pm Wednesday evenings at the Barwon Valley Activity Centre, Barwon Heads Road, Belmont 3216 (opposite the Kmart carpark).
