Bell Post Hill is a residential suburb of Geelong, Victoria, Australia. The origin of the suburb's name is thought to be from a lookout or warning bell on a post situated on the hill overlooking Corio Bay. The first recorded use of this bell was 1837 during a conflict with the local Aborigines. Melbourne and Chinese investors have purchased many properties in Bell Post Hill, Bell Park, Norlane and Corio, and plan to build dwellings with no car parking.
