Suburb Overview

Highton is a residential suburb of Geelong, Victoria, Australia. It is bordered by the Barrabool Hills and Wandana Heights to the west, the Barwon River to the north and east, the former Kardinia Creek to the south-east, and the Princes Highway and Pigdons Road to the south.

Grazier John Highett set up a farm and finished building his house on a hill overlooking the Barwon River in 1837. Later his property became the Montpellier vineyard, hotel and picnic ground. Highton was named after an abbreviation of his name. Reserves, reservoirs and a school in this beautiful suburb still bear the Montpellier name.

The district had been extensively subdivided by the mid-1860s and boasted a hotel, a post office and a population of about 300 people. Vineyards, orchards and farmland were the major commercial activities for some decades. Between 1927 and 1933, two major orphanages and the Glastonbury children's home were opened in the suburb.

Residential development reached Highton by the post war 1950s, the scenic hills overlooking the Barwon River valley being popular with residents. The Highton shopping centre in Bellevue Avenue was constructed in the mid 1960s. Highton Post Office moved here in 1965 and a Highton South office opened the same year. Kardinia Creek separating the suburb from Belmont was placed underground. Further residential expansion continued southwards and by the 1990s housing had reached the Glastonbury Drive area.

The Highton Primary School was the first school to open in the suburb, opening in 1854. Post war growth led to the opening of the Montpellier and Bellaire primary schools. The Geelong Grammar School once occupied a campus in Highton from 1973 to 1998, and Christian College opened in the former St Augustine

Highton is connected by road to the centre of Geelong by Barrabool Road and the Princes Highway. Traffic to Melbourne is able to use the recently opened Geelong Ring Road that passes to the west of the suburb.\.

Public transport to the area is provided by buses operated by Benders Buslines, on routes to the Geelong city centre travelling via Deakin University, Belmont, Buckley Falls and Newtown.

Golfers play at the Queens Park Public Golf Course on Queens Park Road. The Geelong Amateur football and netball club and the Newtown and Chilwell cricket club are also located at Queens Park. The Geelong Falcons are based at the oval adjacent to the Highton shopping centre. The Highton bowls club and tennis courts are also adjacent to the oval.
