Why west is best! The many advantages to living in Melbourne’s western suburbs

Relocating to Melbourne’s western suburbs offers more than just pristine natural surroundings. It opens the doors to a thriving destination for a joyful and fulfilling life, all while providing a solid investment opportunity. Embrace the charm of the growing suburbs in Melbourne and unlock an incredible lifestyle.

As the population, infrastructure, and amenities are rapidly booming, the West is earning a well-deserved reputation as the top area in both Melbourne west and regional Victoria.

Close to Work and Recreation

The western suburbs are still relatively close to the bustling CBD. Living in Exford Waters, Weir Views gives residents the option of an easy 40-minute drive to Melbourne or Geelong, the second-largest city in regional Victoria. The West is also close to some of Victoria’s most popular day trips and tourist destinations, from the historic Ballarat township, Wombat State Forest and the iconic Surf Coast, all just an hour away from Exford Waters.

Increasing Infrastructure Investment

The Victorian State Government is spending billions on infrastructure improvements for Melbourne’s western suburbs. Over the next five years, they’re allocating over $6 billion to the West Gate Tunnel Project, which aims to provide quicker and safer journeys from the CBD to the West, along with a feasibility review on the high-speed rail link between Geelong and the CBD. Part of the $1.3 billion set aside for rail and bus investment is being spent in the West. This will help improve the travel times between western suburbs, CBD, and eastern suburbs in Melbourne.

A Hub for Community and Activity

The West is also gaining traction in community centres and activities. An exciting new Geelong Convention and Event Centre is under construction and due in 2026, with more funds being invested around the state to support planning works for local sports ovals and facilities. $231 million is also being spent on future redevelopments of sports stadiums, including Footscray’s Whitten Oval. In short, ‘West is best’…. and is getting better.

Growing Amenities and Creature Comforts

The Exford Waters estate located near Melton South is also growing, with the expanded masterplan now providing an abundance of amenities with the construction of new community centres, activity hubs, future sports park, and entertainment either in planning or underway. Two future schools are also slated for development, ensuring even more quality educational opportunities for the next generation of residents.
