What Area of Geelong Is Best For Your New Home Build?

Just an hour away from Melbourne sits sunny Geelong, one of the fastest growing regional cities in Australia. It is a large waterfront city with picturesque suburbs and large infrastructure projects, that are planned for what promises to be an exciting future. At Enso Homes, we build bespoke luxury and custom homes for Geelong residents looking to make their dream home a reality. Read on to find out about Geelong’s most promising areas.

Armstrong Creek

Armstrong Creek is a suburb of Geelong that is located only ten minutes away from the Geelong CBD. With the Waurn Ponds station nearby, Armstrong Creek residents can enjoy the ideal coastal life with all the amenities and facilities they need. This up-and-coming area is ideal for new investors who want to be close to urban centres such as Melbourne, without the stress of a busy city life. 

This area also features a comfortable community, state of the art leisure facilities, multiple parks, and public sporting venues.

For those looking for a small, country town experience, Lara is the ideal place. Young professionals and families who value a quiet lifestyle for raising young children are drawn to this area, because it is 10 minutes away from Corio Shopping Centre and only 30 minutes away from Westgate Hospital. The area is known for its museum, parks, playgrounds and thriving small town lifestyle. 

Lara offers easy access to Melbourne city via train and freeway and is a popular choice for people who work in Melbourne but want to find a home in Geelong. It is also in very close proximity to Avalon Airport, for interstate travel. 


Highton is a residential suburb of Geelong that features stunning views across the city, Corio Bay, and the surrounding region. Highton is located along the banks of the Barwon River and across the rolling Barrabool Hills. It is a family-friendly suburb with an affectionate, welcoming community. As it sits beside the ring road, this area is also popular for Melbourne commuters. 


21km south of Geelong lays Torquay, which Enso Homes also services. Torquay is a beachside resort area in Victoria and the gateway to the Great Ocean Road. A beach-laden town popular for summer tourists, this area is a beautiful, luxury place for homeowners looking for a seaside paradise. 

Close to Spring Creek, Point Danger and Zeally Bay, Torquay is popular amongst both young families and seniors. There are plenty of shops, cafes and amenities close by, not to mention water-based sports and beach activities.
