Suburb Overview

Belmont is a southern suburb of Geelong, Victoria, Australia. The name means "beautiful hill". Belmont is geographically separated from the Geelong central business district by the Barwon River. 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.

The area was settled by Geelong mayor Dr. Alexander Thomson in 1836 his pastoral run and subsequent purchases of crown land were managed from the homestead Kardinia. Early settlement was hampered by the lack of a secure bridge. By the mid-to-late 1850s a township had developed with a general store and a number of pubs. The Post Office opened on 21 January 1860.

Many of the streets in the area are named after early properties;for instance Roslyn Road was originally a track which led to the homestead Roslyn in the suburb of Wandana. A few significant older buildings remain, such as Royd Grange which was built by Godfrey Hirst in 1897.

In 1850 Dr. Alexander Thomson offered for sale 93 allotments as the township of Belmont between Mount Pleasant and Roslyn Roads. Further land sales occurred in 1886, 25 acres of Crown land was offered for sale in 25 allotments. The economic depression of the 1890s adversely affected land sales.

In 1909 a substantial proportion of the area, bound by Thomson, Regent and Scott Streets, and Roslyn Road, was acquired by the Geelong Grammar School. On 21 October 1910, Chairman of the school, W.T. Manifold turned the first sod that was expected to be the new era of the school. These plans had faded by August 1911, when adjoining rural land was offered for sale as the Belmont Hill Estate. The Grammar School council indicated that an adjacent suburban subdivision would work against their plans for a boarding school, not one catering for day boys. The school made the decision to buy land on the opposite side of Geelong at Corio, with the land at Belmont, sold for further residential subdivision.

The immediate years after the First World War in the early 1920s witnessed the transformation of the rural farmland in Belmont into a residential area. On 6 December 1913, 86 residential sites were auctioned, forming the Belmont Heights Estate. The streets of this new estate were named after well-known Polar explorers: Scott, Shackleton, Peary and Amundsen. Further subdivision occurred in the 1920s, stimulated by the construction of a new bridge over the Barwon River in 1926, and the extension of the Geelong tramway system in 1927. Construction of houses started during the interwar and early postwar years, most built as affordable homes for textile workers, drivers, labourers, clerks, secretaries, teachers and builders.

Major housing development of Belmont commenced in the years following World War II, with housing developments spreading from the original township on the hill, westwards towards Highton. Later development in the 1970s saw subdivision to the south towards Grovedale.

The CSIRO established laboratories in Belmont in 1948 to perform research to support the wool industry, it has since become one of the leading textile research centres in the world.

The Belmont Common was a site of early aviation in the Geelong area. The first person to fly from the Common was Hans Anderson, a garage owner who flew his home made biplane until he crashed the plane at Lovely Banks.

He was followed by Charles and Percy Pratt. Pilots involved in World War I, they erected a large hangar and workshops, from which they taught gliding and flying, overhauled airplanes and motors, and practised aerial photography.

In 1928, 10,000 Geelong residents turned up at the aerodrome to welcome aviator Bert Hinkler who had just completed a 16-day England-Australia flight. Percy Pratt started the Geelong Gliding Club in 1929 which still exists at Bacchus Marsh. On 4 August 1937 Percy Pratt took off from the Common and completed the longest towed glider flight in Australia up to that time.
