Is Melton a good suburb?

Located just a short drive from Melbourne City, Melton is known for its serene environment, easy connectivity, and great amenities, making it an excellent choice for families. Here’s why it should be at the top of your list.


It’s an easy commute to Melbourne’s CBD

Melton is located just 35 kilometres west, or 46 minutes drive from Melbourne. Enjoy an easy commute to the city centre via public transport, with Cobblebank Train Station close to home close to home, making an easy trip into work. Stay connected to Greater Melbourne and the surrounding western suburbs, including Caroline Springs, Bacchus Marsh and Deer Park easily accessible by the Western Highway and other major road networks.

And with ongoing investments in infrastructure, including a $650 million upgrade to the Melton line allowing for 50% greater train capacity, and a further $26.4 million to upgrade local roads, Melton is poised to reap the benefits of excellent transport links in the years to come.


It’s still an affordable place to buy a new home or land

Compared to Melbourne’s notoriously expensive real estate market, Melton offers affordable housing options, whether you’re a first home buyer, looking for your dream home or wanting an investment property.

With new affordable land options also available, Melton could be the perfect place if you’re looking to build your own home. Exford Waters is just a short 11-minute drive from the Melton city centre, with a range of house and land options, including larger block sizes and house and land packages on offer.

Despite recent interest rate rises, Melton’s property prices continue to grow, with an 8.4% increase in the past year making it an excellent suburb to invest in compared to other suburbs.


It has quality education options

Melton is home to a range of quality education options. From preschool to secondary schools,  there are plenty of options to choose from. Private Schools including Bacchus Marsh Grammar, Creekside K-9 College and Southern Cross Grammar, all ranked in the top 100 schools in Victoria are close by. Melton is also well supported with a number of local government schools, including Melton South Primary, Exford Primary School and Melton College.
