Regardless of what car you drive or the automotive community you are among, you will be welcome within the Caffeine and Gasoline community

The vision is to combine the car scene in Victoria, safely and responsibly to include a wide variety of automotive styles at these events, to showcase the Victorian car community by hosting frequent events to encourage people to bring out their pride and joy for a Saturday morning jaunt.


Dinner at Wharf Shed Cafe
For quality food with a stunning ocean backdrop and a relaxed atmosphere, you can’t go past our waterfront restaurant. Since the late 1990s, the Wharf Shed has been a prominent feature on Geelong’s redeveloped waterfront landscape and a popular dining option for our many customers.

Food & Drink

At the Wharf Shed we pride ourselves on offering great extensive menu at a reasonable price. Our menu offers something for all taste buds and dietary needs, from international flavours to street food and standard restaurant meals, all made using only the best Victorian and local produce from a range of high-quality suppliers. We also double as a popular waterfront bar for locals and visitors, with an extensive range of standard and craft beers

Christmas in Geelong – Opening Night
Families who mark the annual tradition of lighting the tree at the Waterfront will also be treated to the biggest Christmas entertainment line-up yet! It will feature an impressive line-up of entertainment.

Renowned performers, Taylor Henderson and Denis Walter will headline the launch of our Christmas in Geelong program. 

Angie Hilton and dancers will bring the Christmas groove, Kate Daley and Steve Hobbs will serenade you with some all-time favourite Christmas tunes and Geelong’s own ‘piano man’, Andy Pobjoy will accompany Shandelle Cooke to get you into the festive spirit. 

Roving entertainment kicks off at Steampacket Quay with Christmas characters, music and face painting at 5.30pm ahead of a two-hour stage show commencing at 7pm with a Wadawurrung Welcome to Country and performance opening the show.
