Waurn Ponds

Waurn Ponds is a rural district, a residential suburb and university precinct 9 km south-west of Geelong. It is named after the Waurn Chain of Ponds, a watercourse which flows from the region of Mt Moriac to the Barwon River, entering the river a short distance below the breakwater which separates the seawater inflow from fresh water.

It is thought that the name derives from an Aboriginal word meaning camp, although another authority states that the original name was Warren Chain of Ponds.
