Coastal dreaming – Greater Geelong has it all… The city of Geelong is located on Wadawurrung land around the shores of Corio Bay. It is one of Victoria’s best-known gateway cities and leads to one of Australia’s most famous natural attractions – the Great Ocean Road.
In the mid-19th century, Geelong benefited from the discovery of rich goldfields less than 100 kilometres inland. This gold boom was followed by an even longer period of prosperity based on the export of western district wool which explains Geelong’s beautiful buildings including large distinctive and imposing woolstores and the presence of a National Wool Museum in the CBD.
Today, Greater Geelong has diverse employment opportunities and is seeing a growth in knowledge-intensive industries including cleantech, agribusiness, professional services, finance, manufacturing and in the creative sectors.
This partly explains why couples, young families and investors are getting a foothold in Geelong’s diverse property market which has reported solid positive growth in dwelling values over the past few years.
The booming suburbs of Clifton Springs and Drysdale on the Bellarine Peninsula and Lovely Banks, Bannockburn, Whittington, Waurn Ponds, Norlane and Corio, among others, are all within striking distance of the Geelong township as are some of the state’s best hospitals, government, private and independent schools, galleries and recreational facilities.
Throw in some world-class wineries, Victoria’s prettiest beaches and award-winning, internationally renowned restaurants located within close-knit, affordable, friendly communities and it’s easy to see the appeal.
