Australian pop-up mini-golf favourite Pixar Putt is set to help revitalise the Geelong region when it opens at Transvaal Square on the Eastern Beach waterfront from later this month.

Tickets are now on sale for the open-air attraction is made up of interactive putt-putt holes inspired by the stories, characters, and icons from some of Pixar’s most beloved films including Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., Soul, The Incredibles, Onward, Finding Nemo, A Bug’s Life, Wall-E, Inside Out and more, and will feature a new hole from Disney and Pixar’s recent hit movie Luca.

The experience from December 23 to January 30 is perfect for players of all ages and is sure to become a popular destination through the summer holiday season.

And when the sun goes down, Pixar Putt After-Dark sessions will be available for adults 18 and older from Thursday to Saturday nights from 7-10pm, where patrons can also enjoy all the local food and beverage offerings throughout the Geelong waterfront.

“Pixar Putt has had over 350,000 mini golfers putting to infinity and beyond since we launched in 2019 and we are thrilled to head to Geelong for the first time this December,” TEG Experiences managing director Rachael Carroll said.

“We can’t wait to showcase this Aussie-fan favourite attraction which has recently won a new legion of international fans in New York City. When it came to finding a summer location for Pixar Putt, the Geelong Waterfront seemed the perfect spot. There is plenty of space at Transvaal Square for patrons to stay safe, have fun and kick some serious putt!”

Geelong mayor Stephanie Asher said securing the attraction was a major coup for Geelong.

“Pixar Putt usually only tours capital cities so we’re proud to secure this attraction for Geelong to boost business recovery over the vital holiday season.

“Experience favourites from Pixar films including Buzz Lightyear, Sully and Wall-E across the 18-hole course design and enjoy a round of mini golf on our beautiful waterfront.”

To comply with Pixar Putt’s COVID Safe protocols, it is recommended that patrons book online and in advance to secure a preferred tee-off time. Course capacity is limited, so door sales will be possible, but subject only to session availability.

Pixar Putt patrons will also be able to take advantage of Ticketek’s partnership with Afterpay.

The safety of patrons and staff is TEG Life Like Touring and The Walt Disney Company’s top priority and Pixar Putt will operate with a commitment to a COVID Safe environment under a full COVID Safe Plan. Pixar Putt’s COVID Safe measures include capped player numbers on the course at all times; physical distancing measures in queues and on course; sanitiser stations located onsite; plus, sanitising of all golfing equipment between users for every session each day.
