About Leopold

Leopold is a residential suburb on the eastern flank of the city of Geelong where real estate properties can be in high demand. Two major thoroughfares—Bellarine Highway and Portarlington Road—cut across Leopold.

This makes it an ideal place to live in, well-connected to the various points of interest in the region.

Leopold itself boasts several homegrown attractions within its area of approximately 27 square kilometres. This suburb flaunts 19 parks accounting for almost 3 per cent of its total area. These recreational areas, many of which feature charming wetlands, and waterholes include:

  • Gateway Sanctuary, a wildlife preserve with an extensive children’s playground, picnic areas, and BBQ facilities
  • Leopold Memorial Recreation Reserve features track ovals, netball and tennis courts, and a skate park
  • Lake Connewarre State Game Reserve, one of Victoria’s most significant wetland areas and habitat to a wide range of fauna, provides a boat ramp, picnics, and fishing
  • Estuary Boulevard Reserve overlooks Geelong and surrounds and features a spacious playground, BBQ facilities, and lush open areas ideal for family picnics

Delights of the Water and Shopping

Water-based recreational activities are also popular amongst Leopold residents. They enjoy easy access to Corio Bay to the north and the popular beaches around Ocean Grove. Similar nearby destinations include those at Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale.

Economic activity in Leopold has gone a long way too since its rural, fruit-growing origins. This suburb is now home to the modern shopping centre Gateway Plaza Leopold. This sub-regional shopping hub has K-Mart as its anchor. The tenants of the 25,510-square-metre Gateway Plaza also include ALDI, Coles, and Bunnings Warehouse.

Rising Population Demands New Houses

Leopold’s charms attracting new residents is evident in the suburb’s strong population growth. During the 2011–2016 census period, the population of Leopold rose 26.7 per cent from 10,111 to 12,810.

New real estate developments are being pursued in Leopold to accommodate its growing population. One of these projects is the Allure Leopold which is being developed nearby the scenic Lake Connewarre.

Also in the works is the Sanctuary Springs Estate comprised of 300 home sites. This new community is accessible from Bellarine Highway and bills itself as a boutique development.

Despite these new real estate development projects, there is still a lack of available stock in Leopold’s residential property market, local real estate agents say. Looking at sales-listed houses, prospective buyers will find the median price at $640,000 for houses designed with three to four bedrooms.

AWFS team helped us with our first home finance. Their support and guidance was on the point. Special thanks to Andrew and Sanda for pushing through my application with the bank within a week to meet my settlement. Great team, will reach out to them for my future investments.

Thank you to Andrew at AWFS for helping us arrange finance to buy our first home. Andrew is communicative and professional, answering any queries we had and making things so much more understandable for us both. Highly recommend!

- Maisie Barlow

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 🙂
