Surburb overview

Corio is a bayside suburb recognised for its longstanding industrial heritage. It is one of the largest suburbs in Geelong and is close to its central business district.

Suburb background

As an industrial town, Corio used to house the production facilities of major automotive and oil and gas giants, as well as mining and freight businesses. These companies engaged a huge chunk of the town’s workforce and were responsible for keeping the suburb’s economy in the pink of health. Many of its residents are skilled labourers, who take pride in the town’s earned reputation.

In its new life, the town is seeing a gradual departure from its heavy industrial past and is making way for quaint residential developments. Realtors report an increase in city dwellers buying houses in Corio due to its proximity to the CBD, and the size and price of the home and land packages on offer. In Corio, a three-bedroom home could set buyers back by an estimated $250,000.

Popular tourist spots

Points of interest in Corio include the Limeburners Lagoon State Nature Reserve, where one can get stunning views of the sea or go bird-watching. Another way is to cruise the Corio Bay by availing the services offered by a number of tourism companies in the area.

Other tourism destinations are a short drive away, such as Geelong’s National Wool Museum and Geelong Botanical Gardens. There’s also Eastern Beach's Baywalk Bollards – a popular, quirky attraction all around Geelong.
