2. Geelong waterfront skatepark
Geelong Waterfront Skatepark has been the benchmark for skatepark design and architecture. The street-style skatepark is also referred to as Waterfront Plaza which is much more fitting considering you won’t find a single transition in the entire park.

4. St Kilda Skatepark
This beachside skatepark was built in Marina Reserve in St Kilda and features a range of different coloured concrete banks and bowls. The big bowl varies from around five to seven feet in depth, with some extensions reaching almost eight feet. There are also numerous stairs, banks, hips and rollovers, with a mixture of granite and concrete across the park. Thanks to its prime location, it gets crazy busy on weekends, but go mid-week if you’re looking for an uninterrupted ride. If you’re more in the mood for a cruise, the foreshore offers a nice, smooth bike path.
