Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Belmont is a southern suburb of Geelong, Victoria, Australia. The name means "beautiful hill." Belmont is geographically separated from the Geelong central business district by the Barwon River. The suburb is primarily residential, with some light industry along Barwon Heads Road. The suburb is part of the City of Greater Geelong local government area. The area was settled by Geelong mayor Dr. Alexander Thomson in 1836 his pastoral run and subsequent purchases of crown land were managed from the homestead Kardinia. Early settlement was hampered by the lack of a secure bridge. By the mid-to-late 1850s a township had developed with a general store and a number of pubs. The Post Office opened on 21 January 1860.show more
