About Us

Corio Bay Camera Club provides a friendly atmosphere where members and visitors can socialise and improve their photographic skills. We encourage membership from all age groups and skill levels. Experienced members actively assist newcomers.

The club was formed in June 1954 as the Ford Camera Club by a group of Ford employees and has been a member of the Victorian Association of Photographic Societies since 1956.

We have been known as the “Corio Bay Camera Club” since September 1, 1977 and became an Incorporated Association in April 1985.

Visitors and prospective members are always welcome to come along to our meetings which are held at 7.30pm on the 2nd, 4th & 5th Thursdays of the month from the fourth Thursday in January to the last Thursday in November at our rooms at Osborne House, Swinburne Street, North Geelong, 3215.  See Map

Special Interest groups also meet at other times.  Contact Us for more details.

The annual adult membership fee is $50 (Pensioner, Junior, Student or Concession $40).
