He is the twin brother of James Stewart (Olympian 1996, 2000, 2004) and older brother of Stephen Stewart. They were the first trio of brothers to represent Australia in rowing at the same Olympics and were all educated at Newington College (1984–1991),[2] and coached by olympian and fellow Old Newingtonian Michael Morgan.

In 1996 Geoffrey competed in the men's eight event at the Atlanta Olympics, placing sixth. In 2000 he again teamed up with James and competed in the Men's coxless four with James placing 3rd. In 2004 Athens Olympics he rowed with his brother James and Stephen in the Men's Eight placing third.
