Set upon the Barwon River, Belmont proves time and again to be a prized location for a wide range of buyers. Whether you’re dreaming of owning your first home, searching for the perfect downsizer or investment, or looking to secure your ‘forever home,’ you’re sure to find exactly what you’re after in Belmont.

With the High Street shopping precinct running directly through the centre, it’s easy to see why locals consider this vibrant hub to be the heart of Belmont. Placing everything you could possibly want virtually on your doorstep, you’ll be spoilt for choice with local cafes and restaurants in abundance, plus a wide range of big-brand stores and supermarkets. The WoodHouse Café is a must for coffee-lovers, while the Belmont Hotel still holds its reputation as the popular local hangout – you’ll love soaking up the sunshine on the rooftop terrace during Summer! Another hidden gem away from High Street is That Place Patisserie & Café, where you can indulge in the finest French-inspired pastries and seasonal lunch options.

The Barwon River walking trails create a serene setting for daily walks and runs, while the river itself is perfect for keen canoers and kayakers. Children will be in their element when they visit the impressive Barwon Valley Park and Playground, which is a popular destination for locals and holidaymakers alike. The South Barwon Reserve sporting grounds and Barwon Valley Golf Club inspire even more outdoor family fun. Easy access to both Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre and the Highton Village is another welcome bonus.

Of course, the final element to a family-focused neighbourhood is its selection of schools. Home to a total of eight schools, which include Belmont High School and Barwon Valley School, families can take the stress out of the morning school run and enjoy the fresh air instead.

No matter what lifestyle you’ve been dreaming of, you’ll feel right at home in Belmont.
