If you meant Knox Grammar in Sydney, then I visited both schools personally, and they are very different.  So it depends on what you are looking for in a boarding school.

Knox Grammar is in a northern suburb in Sydney called Waroonga.  It is a city school, next to the railway station, and they are adding a new complex currently.  It has a large student population and the boarder to day student ratio is 1 in 2.  So it is more like a seconday school in Hong Kong, next to the main road, a little crowded in my view.

Geelong is a small town with 160,000 people one hour drive from Melbourne, south-west. There is nothing in the surrounding, all residential houses, and it takes 15 minutes just to get to the township of Geelong.  It has a lot more open spaces, even its own stable for hourses.  The border are 1 out of 2 in the student population.

Geelong is more famous worldwide.  Even Prince Charles of Britain is an alumni.
