Suburb profile: Belmont, VIC 3216

Belmont is a large southern suburb of Geelong, Victoria. The name means "beautiful hill".

Belmont is geographically separated from the Geelong central business district by the Barwon River. With the Great Eastern Highway at one side, the suburb is primarily residential, with some light industry along Barwon Heads Road.

The suburb is part of the City of Greater Geelong local government area and only a 10 minute drive from the Geelong CBD.

In Belmont you’ll find nice places to walk along the river and decent shopping options (Belmont Forum offers terrific local shopping), plus a theatre complex for entertainment. The Centenary Park is beautiful and clean, with a playground for the kids and ducks and birds. There are also some nice restaurants, but it does lack a nightlife – with no local bars or pubs.

Belmont is served by a number of Primary and Secondary schools:

  • Belmont Primary School.
  • St Bernard's Catholic Primary School.
  • Belmont High School.
  • Roslyn Primary School.
  • Oberon Primary School.
  • Oberon High School.
  • Oberon South Primary School

Belmont is becoming a more desirable place to live. It is getting better and better because of its location.

Belmont has a large number of reserves and a number of local sporting clubs. The extensive Belmont Common area follows the Barwon River to the east of the suburb, and has a path along both sides of the river for people to utilise on foot or bicycle. The Common also houses the Barwon Valley Public Golf Course,[23] golf driving range, a number of baseball fields, motocross course, indoor and outdoor shooting ranges, dog obedience school, and cricket and football ovals. Further major reserves are Winter Reserve and McDonald Reserve. Established in the late 1960s,[24] both reserves have a number of ovals that see heavy use during the football and cricket seasons.

The suburb has an Australian Rules football team, South Barwon Swans, competing in the Geelong Football League and the Belmont Lions team competing in the Geelong & District Football League. The Barwon Valley Activity Centre houses indoor basketball and netball courts. The centre is also home to a Sunday market and a number of special events. Belmont has a number of children's playgrounds throughout the suburb, the major one being the Barwon Valley Fun Park. Belmont is becoming a more desirable place to live. It is getting better and better because of its location.
