About Georgetown

The smallest of the 2298 suburbs Georgetown retains a village charm in a quiet setting. It was named after George Moate who acquired land in the area in 1853. Moate Street also runs through the centre of the suburb. Georgetown originally began as a residential area for workers from local industries that included the Copper Smelting Workers also known as Goninans (UGL). By 1880 Georgetown was already known as a prosperous village.
Today Georgetown is known for its beautiful cottages, beautiful tree lined streets, and its close access to Waratah’s services, transport and shops.
