Leopold is a residential eastern suburb of Geelong and is the Gateway to the Bellarine Peninsula. The area was formerly known as Kensington. The post office opened as Kensington on 19 May 1858, and was renamed Kensington Hill in 1882, Leopold Hill in 1884 and Leopold in 1885.
The Bellarine Rail Trail passes through Leopold and is a fantastic initiative to provide a meander, run or ride through the peaceful landscape, which runs all the way to Queenscliff.
Gateway Plaza Shopping Complex is home to Kmart, Bunnings, Coles, McDonald’s, Bendigo Bank, Medical Centre and many other convenient shops.
The newer developed areas of consist of the Leopold Kensington Estate, Estuary Estate, Debionair Heights Estate and the Gateway Estate. These areas have been cleverly constructed with surrounding parks, landmarks and sporting facilities. The original areas of Leopold also continue to be highly desirable with large block sizes, great family homes and older properties with development potential.
Leopold prides itself on its lively sporting community and at Hayden Real Estate we are proud to actively support the Leopold Cricket Club, Leopold Angling & Aquatic Club & Leopold Auskick.
The Leopold Sportsman’s Club has been recently upgraded and features bowls greens, squash hall, function rooms, and with a great menu, is an ideal place for lunch or dinner!
Leopold Primary School is centrally located and is home to the LINC (Leopold Indoor Neighbourhood Centre). This space is utilised for basketball, gymnastics, martial arts, dance classes and so much more. In addition to this, The Leopold Community Hub, near the school, is a civic precinct for the delivery of community services including a Child and Family Centre, library, youth area, multi-purpose community rooms and public open space.
Living in Leopold offers you the benefit of living a 15-minute drive to the beach and beautiful surrounds of the Bellarine Peninsula and a 15-minute drive into Geelong city. Have the best of both worlds at your doorstep!
