Armstrong Creek Suburb Guide
A stunning location with everything you need and more
Booming in popularity due to its close proximity to the famous surf coast, Armstrong Creek is a stunning location, offering a peaceful lifestyle and affordable land options.
A mere 20 minutes from the vibrant Geelong city centre, this suburb is set to accommodate the bulk of the wider region’s growth — meaning it’s one to jump on while you can! Developed with family buyers very much in its sights, this rapidly expanding area is for anyone seeking a change of pace with a relaxing coastal backdrop.
Plenty to see and do
For those drawn towards the idea of purchasing a brand new home over something established, Armstrong Creek is the perfect opportunity to do so while still allowing you to be close to the action. Located just 16 minutes from the famous Barwon Heads, this seaside hotspot offers the best of both worlds; a relaxed coastal lifestyle, yet the opportunity to immerse yourself in the gorgeous natural backdrop and strong community feel of Armstrong Creek.
An area with plenty to do and see, take advantage of the stunning natural creeks and parks with an active day out at places like Warralily Reserve. Planning a fun day out with the family? Victoria’s biggest theme park, Adventure Park, is just a short drive and boasts exciting rides and attractions, such as Fortress Falls Mini Golf: a course with a giant, flowing waterfall.
For footy lovers, the home ground of the Geelong Cats is right around the corner. Kardinia Park (also known as GMHBA Stadium) is host to many exciting matches, extending the community feel throughout the greater Geelong region.
Armstrong Creek is surrounded by a number of shopping centres, including the Village at Warralily which is a mere 1.4km away, providing a closeby option for supermarket shops as well as a number of boutique stores. Set to become the retail, entertainment and leisure hub of Geelong’s south, a $60 million shopping precinct is set to be finished toward the end of 2020 — marking the first step toward the exciting new Armstrong Creek town centre. Another reason why this is a destination set for fast residential growth. And with more and more families seeking their own little slice of paradise, this development combined with nearby shopping options in Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads create a vibrant region with something to suit everyone.
With so many growing families moving to the area, there’s a plethora of options when it comes to schooling. Armstrong Creek is a great option for all students, with a highly regarded special needs program. Other great options for parents are Geelong Lutheran College and Mount Duneed Primary School. Due to steadily increasing growth, the Government has placed an emphasis on accessible education for locals and as such, has committed to a large number of new school openings before 2026 — with places such as Oberon High School relocating to the rapidly expanding area.
A popular foodie destination, the Greater Geelong region has a large array of restaurants and Cafes to try. If it’s fast food you’re after, the Peppered Goat or The Slippery Mackerel are great options. In terms of cafes, a local favourite is the Warralily Cockatoo. In the neighbouring Grovedale, head down to Sethro’s BBQ or the Grovedale Hotel for a nice pub meal, or spend a sunny afternoon with friends at Geelong’s The Little Creatures Brewery.
Overall, Armstrong Creek is the perfect combination of beachy lifestyle and close-knit, suburban community, with future plans making it the ultimate location for all families.
