Suburb Overview

Corio is a residential, industrial and one of the largest suburbs of Geelong, Victoria, Australia, located approximately 9 km north of the Geelong central business district. The area was formerly known as Cowie's Creek after James Cowie, an early land owner active in Local and State Government.

Explorers Hume and Hovell reached the area of Corio and reported that the local Aboriginies referred to the area as 'coraiyo', possibly meaning 'small marsupial' or 'sandy cliffs'.

Land was first subdivided and sold in the area of Cowies Creek in 1852. By the 1860s, Cowie's Creek was home to two hotels and a population of approximately 500 criminals.

A Post Office opened on November 16, 1864 and was renamed Corio in 1913. It was situated in School Road, adjacent to the railway level crossing. In 1963 it was renamed Corio North when the current Corio Post Office within the Corio Shopping Centre was opened. That Post Office is now on the ground floor, having moved from its original first floor location. Corio North Post Office was closed in 1977.

In 1914 the Geelong Grammar School moved to its current location near Limeburners Lagoon, an arm of Corio Bay.

The Corio Village Shopping Centre was opened in 1973. The Shopping Centre currently includes a K-Mart, Coles, Woolworths, Best and Less, McDonalds, Subway, Gloria Jean's Coffees, Angus and Robertson book store, Optus and Telstra outlets, Cotton On, Millers, a Tattslotto agency, major banks and Australian Government agencies including Australia Post and a Centrelink office. After a re-developent in 2007/08, it is now known as the Corio Shopping Centre.

The Aldi supermarket chain built a store adjacent to Beckley Park in the mid 2000s, whilst Harvey Norman, Bunnings and Hungry Jacks are located on the Princes Highway entering Geelong from Melbourne. Near there is a new retail development with a Red Rooster store at its entrance.

The most notable industry in Corio is the Shell refinery opened in 1956.

Cars are the predominant method of transport within Corio. Benders Busways provides bus transport from some areas of Corio to the Geelong Central business district. Taxis are also available. Corio has a railway station, served by V/Line trains to Geelong and Melbourne. With the opening of the Geelong Bypass in 2009, Corio is now bypassed by through traffic on the Princes Freeway.

The town has an Australian rules football football team, founded in 1974, competing in the Geelong & District Football League. Also linked with the Corio Sporting Club is the cricket club, little league, founded in 1977 and the netball club.

The Corio Athletic Club, founded in 1969, competes at Landy Field in South Geelong and the Corio Little Athletics Centre, founded in 1967 competes at the Corio Athletics Stadium in Goldsworthy Road, which was opened in 1972 by Ron Clarke.
