"Great place to raise a family"

Very family friendly, very clean and green. Nosy neighbors are a fixture of Canterbury, but it does make for almost zero burglaries (in fact none in our street - they'd be spotted straight away!). Parks are wonderful, fantastic access to bike tracks. Situated between middle Camberwell shops, Maling Road shops and the high street on Burke Road, Camberwell, the shopping choices are excellent. We are also almost exactly halfway between Chadstone and Doncaster shopping centres, so again, excellent choices. Public transport is wonderful - two train lines, and the two closest train stations are Riversdale station which is on the Alamein line; or Canterbury station which is on the Belgrave line and the Lilydale line. Trams run along Riversdale Road which is a few minutes walk. In fact, I think the location is almost ideal.

Is there any reason to go anywhere else? Well only that people can be a little pretentious, but maybe that's just part of the Eastern suburbs culture? Not sure?
