Such unique proximity makes the region very popular for new residents seeking the best of both worlds.

A range of urban estate developments through to rural-residential options are available for residents who prefer the open space and cleanliness of urban fringe areas. House prices are amongst the most affordable in the greater Melbourne area and an attractive proposition particularly to young families.
