QLD Tourism welcomes Gold Diggers Arms, in Newtown You'll discover wonderful places to visit in Newtown.
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.

Ate at Gold Diggers on Saturday night. The food was lovely, but the service was terrible . 2 young waitresses " attended " to our table, we had to keep asking for water and drinks. Not only was someone at our table served the wrong meal, but, she argued that ,that was what we ordered. Not once was there any compensation or apology. . It was around 9pm and one of the waitresses started clearing our wine glasses without asking if we had finished. This is the second time in a week we have eaten there and both times were similar. I'm not in a hurry to go back
Had a family dinner here and loved everything about it- the service was great and the meals were good. Checked on regularly but not annoying and always had a drink in our hands which I find rare in service these days so top notch to these guys! Definitely recommend and will go back.
