Belmont Vic 3216 – Interesting Facts

Belmont is a southern suburb of Geelong which is located on the southern side of the Barwon River. The area was originally inhabited by the Wathuarong people for at least 25,000 years prior to European settlement.

The first European to settle in, what is now known as Belmont, was Dr. Alexander Thomson. He later went on to become the Mayor of Geelong. His homestead was named “Kardinia”.

The Barwon River originally hampered settlement on the southern side of its banks however wooden bridges were later installed which made access alot easier. These earlier bridges were washed away however due to floods. These floods also cause alot of issues to this day.

Most of the main streets and roads throughout Belmont were named after properties from this early settlement era. One of the better known and used Roads in Belmont is “Roslyn Road”. Roslyn Road was named after a track which led to a homestead which was located in the Wandana suburb.

The suburb continued to flourish in the coming decades as land owners begain to subdivide their land into smaller allotments. The Geelong Grammer School was originally a significant holder of land in the Belmont region. However they decided to sell due to the increasing popularity of subdivisions in the greater Belmont Victoria region. Once the Geelong Grammer sold their Belmont land holdings, they purchased land in their current location in Corio.

Belmont is also home to some of the oldest period style homes in the Greater Geelong area. The Belmont area always tends to see greater capital growth due to it’s larger allotments and ammenities. One of the better known shopping strips in the Greater Geelong area is “High Street Belmont”. Homes within walking distance of High Street are always in high demand.
