Suburb Overview

Geelong West is a commercial and residential suburb of Geelong, Victoria, Australia. When Geelong was founded, the area was known as Kildare but its name was changed to Geelong West in 1875. The main street is Pakington Street.

Ashby was once a suburb of Geelong located in the area of Geelong West, west of Latrobe Terrace, between Aberdeen Street and Church Street. By 1850 this area had become known as Little Scotland, and Kildare. At this point, Ashby referred to the area between Autumn Street and Waratah Street.

In 1875 the entire Ashby area was renamed West Geelong. The Ashby state school, which had only opened that same year, changed its name to Geelong West. In 1988, as part of Australia's bicentennial celebrations, the school changed its name back to Ashby. A Post Office named Geelong West opened on 1 July 1865 but was replaced and renamed Geelong North Railway Station in 1886. On 1 April 1887 the Geelong West office reopened near its present location. In 1960 Shandeen Post Office opened near the corner of Aberdeen Road and Shannon Avenue.

Geelong West was served by an electric tramway service from 1912 until 1956, when the service was replaced by buses subcontracted out to Benders Buslines.

The M. Donaghy & Sons ropeworks factory was once located in Pakington Street, Geelong West. The site has been developed, with construction of a Woolworths Supermarket and space for specialty shops. Construction commenced in January 2008 and Woolworths began trading in late 2008. This was the first store to open in the Geelong area under the new national name and new logo of Woolworths when the chain changed its name from Safeway in the state of Victoria.

Clonard College, a girls' secondary school, is located in the suburb.

Journalist and publisher J. F. Archibald was born in Geelong West in 1856. A memorial bust was erected on the corner of Weddell Road and Shannon Avenue in 1956.
