Newtown is situated in Greater Geelong, inland from Corio Bay and bordered to the south and west by the Barwon River. Geelong West and Monifold Heights are located on its northern border, and Geelong and South Geelong to the east.
The Newtown area of Geelong saw dramatic growth during the gold rushes, as the city was a major gateway to the goldfields. Newtown’s first tramway opened in 1912. In 1924 the Town of Newtown and Chilwell was created; in 1949 it became a City. In 1967 the City of Newton was created.
10 minutes from the Shannon Motor Inn you will discover the beautiful Geelong Botanic Gardens. The gardens are free to appreciate and don’t miss the The Tea House to enjoy a coffee and a snack!
