Nestled in the Newtown’s leafy Skene Street, Gold Diggers Arms may well be ‘the last of the true neighbourhood pubs’ in Geelong. In time honoured tradition the ‘Diggers’ has become the local for many, with their next generations following suit and making it their local of choice too.
It all began for the Gold Diggers Arms in 1854 when William Lindsay was granted licence to the establishment. The population of Geelong was just over 20,000 people. Now, 150 years later, Newtown is an integral part of Geelong with sporting clubs, schools and shops.
It is one of the great pleasures of pub going, that every so often you find a pub that is as near perfection as possible. Perfection is of course subjective, which is why it’s so important that pubs are as individual as their customers. Finding a pub that ticks all your boxes is worth shouting about, and that is what we will be striving to achieve. In moving forward to the future of the Diggers we want to continue finding the things that make the perfect pub.
