Armstrong Creek, 3217
The emerging suburb of Geelong.
Armstrong Creek, a new and emerging suburb only 10 years old, is situated south-west of Geelong. This up-and-coming area, previously used for farming, provides residents with abundant natural attractions. The pretty Armstrong Creek runs through it, the magnificent Barwon River and its parklands are to the north, and the Sparrowvale wetlands, a diverse and sustainable wetland and wildlife reserve are all yours to enjoy.
Stunning beaches await at the popular seaside towns of Barwon Heads and Torquay just moments down the road. From Torquay, you can visit the famous Bells Beach or commence your drive down the world-famous Great Ocean Road.
Armstrong Creek connects you with the environment, allowing you to slow down in line with nature and all on offer. When surrounded by this much natural beauty and open space, it's no surprise that Armstrong Creek residents choose to take advantage of the sustainable lifestyle options - great bike paths, walking tracks, good bus connections, and even sustainable water use!
Tucked away in this quiet, peaceful suburb of Armstrong Creek, it's hard to imagine the mega Waurn Ponds shopping centre is just moments away, or even the large supermarket centre at Warralily. Both shopping centres are accessed by a public bus which services Armstrong Creek residents. The regional city centre of Geelong is 17 minutes away by car, and train stations at Marshall or nearby Waurn Ponds mean you can easily train into Geelong, or keep going to Melbourne, or alternatively out towards Western Victoria.
The focus at Armstrong Creek is on building strong communities. It has been extremely popular with young families, first home buyers, or people looking for a lifestyle change. Armstrong Creek has established childcare centres, primary schools and secondary schools, all at your doorstep. Or you may choose to look a bit further to the nearby regional city of Geelong for more schools and universities.
