"Growing Town close to everything."

I've lived in Amrstrong Creek for nearly 4 years now. The area has grown significantly and will continue to do so due to the future plans and population growth. The estates are fantastic. They take advantage of the pre-existing creeks and waterways which have created an amazing blend of nature and suburbs. Armstrong Creek now has shops, restaurants, schools, parklands, daycare centres and a large elderly care facility about to open. This is all here prior to the large town center that will be built in the next few years which is estmated to be the size of the Geelong CBD. Real estate growth has been strong and continues to grow, as well as future business and employment opportunities.

The area is great for families and people looking at a better and affordable lifestyle. Geelong CBD is 15 min, Torquay 10 min, Barwon Heads 15 min, Great Ocean Road 20 min, Anglesea 25 min and just over an hour to Melbourne. You can get everything you need from Geelong and Surf Coast without needing to travel to Melbourne.

There are plenty of things to do around Geelong including pubs, shops, resturants, theme parks, sports, theatres, parklands, beaches and more. You get the same diversity and activity as Melbourne without the mass population and extremely high property prices.

For anyone looking at living close to the coast as well as a large regional city which has everything to offer, then Armstrong Creek is the place to be.

"New estate, lovely parklands,infrastructure on its way"

We have lived in Armstrong Creek for 4 years and have enjoyed watching it grow with parklands, shops, child care and schools now ready to go.

Unfortunately their is a bit of nuisance crime, mainly regular car break ins but also some robberies, including daylight robberies. The perils of owning a nice home where the assumption is that you’ll also own nice furniture.
