About The Geelong Region

Geelong, with a growing population nearing 270,000 as of 2021, is the second-largest city in Victoria, next only to Melbourne. Covering an area of around 1,329 square kilometres, Geelong sprawls on the western shores of Corio Bay some 75 kilometres southwest of Melbourne’s central business district.

Geelong’s History

Geelong was founded in 1838 and grew to become a major working-class port city in Australia. The city remains as one of the country’s fastest-growing regional areas, as it has shifted from heavy manufacturing that propelled Geelong’s economy for most of the 20th century. The city’s sustained economic strength revolves around the following:

  • Emergence as a hub for health, education, and advanced manufacturing
  • Proximity to Melbourne, which is just some 45 minutes away
  • Nearby beaches and other leisure facilities

Geelong is just 20 minutes to the water-based lifestyle in the Surf Coast and the Bellarine Peninsula. Because of this proximity, there has been a strong rise in demand for holiday homes in the city, particularly from Melbourne homebuyers.

A rich mix of economic drivers

Several large employers have also relocated to Geelong, thus further boosting residential demand in the city. The major employers in the city include the headquarters of retail chain Target Australia, Notably, there are several shopping precincts in Geelong’s CBD, with Westfield Geelong and Market Square amongst them.

The Geelong area hosts major research laboratories as well. These include the CSIRO Division of Textiles and Fibres Technology, the CSIRO Australian Animal Health Laboratory, and the Marine and Freshwater Resources Institute.

Several public and private schools serve local and overseas students in Geelong. Some of these institutions are historic schools dating back to the late 1800s, like the Gordon Institute of TAFE.
More affordable, abundant home picks

Geelong draws homebuyers because its home prices are relatively more affordable than in Melbourne. Moreover, there is a wide-ranging mix of single-family houses and townhomes to choose from in Geelong. Some of the most sought-after residences are located in the gentrified streets of Belmont, Geelong West, and Newtown.

The Geelong Property Market

The pricing of sales-listed single-family residences in Geelong can start from around AU$550,000 for a house with two bedrooms and two baths. On the high-end, the listings can include four-bedroom residences with a floor area of 330 square metres priced in the AU$2.45–2.50 million range.

Fantastic service from Scott & his support staff. All questions answered, I’s dotted and T’s crossed. Nothing to too difficult for them and all concerns were addressed. Everything was a smooth process. For us being self employed it was probably the easiest refinance we have ever dealt with. So happy to have come across and been recommended AWFS.

Even after settlement, our broker kept in touch if we had any questions and will continue to keep in touch. Always on the lookout for better deals. Thanks again Scott & team. You definitely have a client for life 🙂
