"A very underrated western suburb"

Please note that is a review for the whole of Wyndham (Hoppers,Werribee,Tarneit,Truganina)

For years,the western suburbs have been looked down upon as the sewerage suburb of Melbourne and I just cannot understand why. This is absolutely ridiculous and if that stopped you from investing, then you've lost out on a gold mine of a market. I bought my property in 2009 for 230,000 and it is now worth 350 plus (3 brm, 600 square metres).That's 65% in 2.5 years.

To all those with false notions, the western suburbs are one of the fastest growing in Melbourne simply because no other place is affordable (Forget entering the property market in the east or south and do you really want to be in 'middle east' north?I have lived up north so I am not being racist). I have been living here for 2.5 years and have noticed so much change in such a short span of time.
I'll give you a rundown on what to expect here and I have experienced all of the below personally:

1) Werribee south beach is infamous for being a pet friendly beach.It also has one the best boat launching ramps in Melbourne.
2) You have the Werribee Mansion and the Open Range Zoo.The mansion is great for a stroll over the weekend and the open range zoo is the only one of it's kind in Victoria (or probably even Australia)
3) The You Yangs and the Brisbane Ranges are a 15 minute drive away.Amazing for bush walks and push bike rides.Some really good wineries on the way too where you can stop over for lunch.
4) Avalon airport is 20 minutes away though only Jetstar operate from there.Avalon,I believe will become a major airport one day to address the traffic issues which Tullamarine will create.
5) Geelong is 30 minutes away and the City is 30 minutes.Wyndham is equi-distant to both.Apollo Bay is a much shorter drive from Wyndham.
6) Tarneit offers great shopping options better than Werribee Plaza.It is well planned and shops are partitioned in sections rather than having all shops under one roof.
7) The Werribee River is one the best places you can go to for a walk or push bike ride.There are BBQs and a dedicated push bike path which is brilliant.It connects all the way to Geelong.A beautiful place for a picnic or romantic getaway.You can pick your own private spot.
8) A new train station is on the way which connects Tarneit to the CBD.The Geelong V/line will travel via this in the future.
9) Watton Street is a very good place for eating out.It's quite hip and happening.The Werribee theatre is also on Watton.

Cons of living here.

1) Hoons are a problem but if a complaint is made to the council,they take action within 24 hours (very impressive)
2) Schools are average but which school is if it isn't a Catholic one?
3) Lot of smokers and obese people around (surprising for a place with so many outdoor activity options)

All in all a very underrated suburb. If you're going to live here,be sure to get out and about.You're really not going to like it if you sit around at home.

  • Parksand Recreations and child care centers

australia Hi, I really think your post is valuable as it provides so much information on the area. Unfortunately it is only visible when looking under "hoppers crossing" reviews. Would you mind posting it for tarneit and werribee also? Cheers

"Poor teaching environment"

The main teacher at my son's kinda doesn't communicate well with the children or the parents. She constantly ignores while kids are talking to her, she doesn't give us the daily feedback. She can't even say "Good morning" or "Good bye". One of the mothers got beaten up in a primary school carpark when she dropped her son off in the morning. People are smoking right next to the kids in the school car park, not only cigarettes but joints. Constant yelling and swearing. Our friend's year 1 son violently treated by a female teacher so they went in to talk to the teacher but the school didn't hold a meeting straight away, the school finally called them to organise a meeting two weeks later. We have met some lovely teachers but they are definitely outnumbered by bad ones.
The school holds the weekly assembly right under the sun in the afternoon in summer. Kids are sitting on the hot concrete.
Carparks especially near Wetland are covered with broken glasses/bottles.
People call the area HOPELESS CROSSING!

HoppersGirl @whoever re "Poor teaching environment" - one school doesn't count for the whole of the schools in Hoppers Crossing. My children attended school in Hoppers and we were very happy with their progress there. The school community can determine the standard of the school. Instead of parents whinging, how about volunteering some of your time to your child's environment. Education is a three way stream - the child, the parent and the teacher.

"Tidy Tarneit"

Tarneit is South West of Melbourne, roughly a 45 minute drive to Melbourne CBD. Devine has built a new community estate named Mooroklye of which features a country club and more. Homes can be built relatively cheaply in Tarneit although you do 'get what you pay for'. For investors I advise getting building and land lord insurance as it is a must for this area.

Yes the area is being revamped and developed and hence will be experiencing teething problems. The upside is the pricing, multicultural neighborhood and close proximity to the CBD approximately 25 kilometres which is great for growth.

On the downside from what I have researched crime seems to be relatively high in comparison to other more expensive suburbs. Having said that if you are looking at living here then its not all that bad as long as you counter any criminal activity etc before it happens.

Some of my suggestions are installing Crim safe, having good communication with neighbors/ security, purchasing home and contents insurance and keeping your vehicle in the garage at night.

Overall the estate has a good balance of investors and owner occupiers, is more appealing to those that are limited with spending on there home and savvy investors looking for a good mixture of tax deductions (negative gearing and depreciation etc), rental return and capital growth.

Victoria has one of the highest stamp duty costs in the country and Melbourne property is forever increasing in price. Due to its close proximity to the CBD and affordability I believe this area will get more expensive, more developed and ultimately will improve levels of crime, transport and entertainment etc.

More people purchase at the lower end of the property pricing spectrum than the higher end. This means you have much more chance of the price of your property going up if you are at the lower end of pricing.

I personally look for growth suburbs that are having teething problems such as Mooroklye estate not suburbs that have already experienced massive growth and are ridiculously expensive. Personally I have lived in areas I believe similar safety wise as Tarneit, at first I was nervous but with time I adjusted and became close with many of my neighbors.

"Tarneit - Suburb of the future - Where all your hard work will go to waste as it will be stolen."

I have lived in the Moorokyle Estate (Juliet Ave) for over 12months. Where can I start. I have had neighbours visitors park on my front yard, my clothes line was stolen before we moved in and when I complained to the builder - Devine. The words " Well its not our problem" came out of there mouth. Hmmm. No courier service will deliver out here as it isn't on the Nav therfore it isn't a suburb (well done Toll, VFS, Border Express). Another strange but true - overseas youth beating each other sensless at the "Devine Country Club".Speaking of the great Country Club I witnessed a Security Guard kick people out because they weren't with an adult even when they have the pass and are aged between 17 and 20 and not causing any problems infact on this occasion these young men were helping younger kids.No public transport, no lights on main streets to the estate therefore a major accident at the cnr of Sayers Rd and Tarneit Rd.No local shop or medical rooms therefore you have to travel further and wait for at least 1 - 3 days for an appointment. They say they have security driving around the estate then why are so many people having things stolen. So to the two young lads who have stolen my hub caps and petrol on a weekly basis - thank you.

So if you to want to live in a New and fantastic suburb where your children have a high risk of being assualted, your hot water service , clothes line or anything else that isn't bolted down stolen and not getting it back therfore you have to pay again. then please come and join us.

lubba
lubba I have lived in Hoppers Crossing/ Tarneit area for 36 years. I have never had anything stolen. I have also had lovely neighbours in a lovely neighbourhood. I also have a business in the local area. We have over 400 families that come and go from our services. I have not had a problem and it has been running for 13 years. Growing up, I was never assaulted and neither were my brother or sister.
I have lived in Tarneit for 7 years and we received packages from couriers the first week we moved in and we were one of the first houses in Tarneit Gardens estate.
Where are you trying to go for a doctors appointment? There is one on almost every corner. Drive two minutes down the road and find at least 3 or 4.

"Moved in and back out"

Hoppers Crossing is one of those suburbs you either absolutely love or hate. I am one of those who hate it. We moved into Hoppers Crossing and one of the homes we went into had a gun on the kitchen table and when we asked the lady about it she replied "for protection". That's not the reason I don't like Hoppers. I just feel there are far too many hoons around and our neighbours were horrible. We moved into three homes in Hoppers all three were in different places in hoppers and 3/3 were bad. Yes I will admit that Hoppers is good for the fact that it has everything there. I am the kind of person who likes peaceful living away from the hustle and bustle which is why we moved to a quiet area. For those who don't mind and like being in the middle of it all...Hoppers would be ideal. I will give it credit........Alot better than Point Cook.

Woolpack
Woolpack arachnid.....your post is comical to say the least. Obviously, having had to move to three different places within Hoppers Crossing and all neighbours were horrible only adds up to the fact, maybe you were the horrible neighbours! If you dislike a suburb so much, why did you move three times within the same very suburb you despise. Somehow I do not think your post is honest at all and you maybe just have a personal gripe with someone in Hoppers so you are trying to rate the suburb badly. Seen and heard it all before. Hoppers Crossing is a great place and if it wasnt, why is there a huge waiting list for children to get into Cambridge Primary....yeah, a really bad place to live. Glad to hear you moved 'back out!"

arachnid
arachnid lol woolpack right so even though our neighbours in william wright wynd were drug addicts and the 12 year old kid was allowed to run around in the nude out the front and SMOKE and DRINK we were the bad ones we are the kind that keep to ourselves and never bother anyone and dont have barking dogs and no loud music...like I said before obviously you can't read...Hoppers might seem like a good area for some especially the ones that like being close to all the shops etc...We just had a bad experience there I am sure that there are a large number of people that absolutely love Hoppers Crossing. Deal with it Woolpack
Jul 28, 2010
Woolpack
Woolpack oh dear oh dear arachnid! William Wright wynd is not 'Woolpack' Street nor the be end all of Hoppers Crossing so how can you compare one street to the next. All streets in ALL suburbs have drug addicts and people with problems. I have worked with DOCTORS that are drug addicts. So you not only bag a suburb because of your personal experience, you put down a suburb because of very few people with problems. So what, there are problems in all suburbs, in all streets and its sad. Overall, Hoppers is a wonderful suburb and I agree with you whole-heartedly that a large number of people absolutely love Hoppers Crossing...I can deal with that!

"Tarneit - Growing Suburb"

Tarneit is an emerging suburb in the City Of Wyndham and is 25km from CBD.
There is a large number of immigrants arriving from overseas and buying houses in Wyndham area.
Residents are car dependent as there is no public transport .It takes 40-50 minutes to reach the CBD peak hour.

Wyndham Shopping centre is the nearest shopping centre for Tarneit.This suburb is good for first home buyers as it is cheap.You can buy a 3 bedroom house with a decent land for $300-330K.

As a investor be mindful.This place recieves below average rent (average melbourne rent $360 per week).REIV stats shows that the property prices have risen by only 18% in the last 5 years.You may be better of buying in Hoppers crossing & Werribee as they have transport and leisure facility.
There are some government infrastructure put in place (rail link) which will be completed by 2015.I hope by then the propety prices will start to pick up.

mooroo
mooroo Hi,
I live in the Moorookyle state which is surrounded by Sayers Road,Tarneit Road and Davis Road.
We have nice country club in our area it cost you $ 450 annual, which facilitate Tennis court,Gym,Swimming pool (not heated !) ,large kids play ground and large ground.
We are 25-30 mins to city off peak hours. But I use public transport to work ,I left home around sharp 7.50 am to catch 8.13 am express train from hoppers crossing (secure car parking in hoppers next to Target!) i get to city around 9.45 am . This will help you to adjust your time table.
Tarneit close to the Melbourne Airport just 35 mins average drive through the Sayers road via western ring road. But I found this boundary road connect from the Davis road is actually connecting to Deer Park highway entrance and to the western ring road is much more easy and fastest if you live in the Moorookyle state ,but unfortunately some part of Davis road and end of the boundary road is still gravel road.
In the peak hours there are some considerable traffic in the Sayers Road, Tarneit Road junction and the Sayers Road, Derrimut road junction. Things will be fine once developments are done.
I have been told some community members the area is more outnumbered by the Islander bases communities which experiencing some of domestic violence and un-attendant kids around the area. But things will be alright once the Tarneit Police Station opens up and start their patrols.
Please this all things how I saw in the Tarneit make sure read all other comments. I am very much like the Area mainly because I am feeling the Aussi out back while still 25 mins to the City.
tks

"Nice area.."

I moved to tarneit last year but have always lived close by anyway and I can say it is a nice looking and clean town.
Tarneit has some great local public, catholic and other schools. It is also VERY multi cultural.

Tarneit has a very high crime rate with burglary being at the top, however i fortunately have not experienced this. There are so many new estates going up and it is growing fast. I personally hate that alot of the newer estates here are more townhouses. Even the homes are all ontop of each other.

"Recommended despite the shortcomings!"

We have lived in two different areas of Tarneit now and find it great - but you must make allowances! The area I am currently in - Vesper Ave in The Rise estate - is great and we have a park right across the street, but the park attracts the local idiots at night. You will stay awake to the (not so) soothing sounds of basketballs being bounced even at 3.30am, and the other night we even had to chase some kids who were throwing things round, and banging and crashing at midnight. That does improve when the night is a cooler one, but you need to know this if you rely on your sleep. The neighbours also seem to fight a lot - one waking me at 5.45 this morning with the most obscene language right out the front door!! People don't seem to know how to park their cars off the road either so care is needed in driving round the streets as it is difficult to see past cars parked right next to corners, and as the estate is still being developed you have the tradie/hoon factor along with all the people doing 10kph to look at all the display houses while driving - very frustrating!! There also seems to be an issue with dusty conditions so if you have major allergies like hayfever I would keep clear of the outer parts of Tarneit, but nearer Sayers Rd/Morris Rd where I used to live is much better. There are also near no trees which I miss after having lived in rural Victoria.

Public transport is horrible from The Rise, but you are only a 8 minute drive to the Werribee Plaza which has some great shopping, or 12 min from Old Geelong Rd with all the homemaker type of shopping. There is also Wyndham Village Shopping a few minutes away which has a terrific doctor's surgery that is open til 11 at night. Traffic isn't too bad compared to the eastern suburbs and people are a little more friendly as well. We've had no problems with any of the phone/internet receptions and there seems to be near no pests/spiders (apart from the human wildlife!!). Schools are around with more being built in the near future - that will improve things as good ones are not real close. Have not heard good things about the Grange College (the nearest) but apologies if you have had a good experience - I'm only going on what I've been told!

There is an easy run into the city most of the time (obviously I don't do the peak hour 'thing'), and you still have the country town feel only with the good city access. It is a good area if you have kids as they all seem to make friends with one another very easily and I've seen up to 20 boys at a time playing footy together across the road which is great. Maybe I'm just in an unfortunate area for the noise factor - but this has led to my decision to move out when I find somewhere else. There seems to be a very large Kiwi contingency so if you are a Kiwi yourself you may find it the perfect area to live!

I appear to have bagged the area pretty badly, but it is only to give you an idea of what to expect in the worst case scenario. There is another review from around the corner which has a much better view, so take that into consideration! I would still recommend the area for the quick commute to the city as well as the things that are there if you don't mind travelling a little!

"Up and Coming Place to Live"

Once a suburb filled with acreage properties and at the edge of lower-income rental residences, Tarneit is now becoming a place in which many middle- and upper-income families are choosing to live as the prices of the eastern northern and inner western parts of Melbourne are increasingly out of reach for many Victorians.

By the year 2020, Tarneit will be a major suburb of Melbourne, with a new rail line due to be completed by that year, and in the interim several state schools being built and a local private school expanding to secondary (2011), taking advantage of the increasing population.

Being so largely made up of residential estates, those building in Tarneit have been working hard to create a place where people - families, in particular - will want to live. Of course, Tarneit is not a hub of commerce and major industry, which means the majority of people living here, of middle- and upper-income, have to go a bit of a distance to the CBD. And the public transport infrastructure at the moment is not 'crash-hot', which means you must have a car to get to the nearest railway stations to catch trains that take around 45 to 50 minutes to get into the city. However, don't despair; the future Tarneit Station will be a part of a faster rail link to the centre of Melbourne.

Night-life is limited, but then again, this is suburbia. However, it's not far from RSL-styles clubs, to which many residents of Tarneit go for a meal and/or a nightclub.

Tarneit's close proximity to both Melbourne city and Geelong make it an overall good place to live, with none of the over-crowdedness of the eastern side of the metropolitan area, and no trams to congest the roads. Roads tend to be wide and are constantly being upgraded to allow for better flow of vehicles, and regional centres such as Bendigo and Ballarat are close enough that a day trip to either place is more than easy, instead of the weekend trips that people in other parts of the city must consider.

"GREAT PLACE TO RAISE A YOUNG FAMILY"

What a great plce to live, with 5 children and many facilities in Hoppers Crossing it ticks all the boxes.
With a huge choice of Schools both private and public, you can pick the right fit for your family.
We live in a 40sq house with plenty of room to move, could'nt afford that in the East.
With the Hospital close by and too many medical centres to mention, health is well catered for.
6 major Supermarkets within a 6km radius means competitive grocery prices, and many choices for shopping for furniture and electrical, people travel here from Geelong and further a field for a great deal.
You can hop in the car and be parked in the heart of the city in 25-30mins.or take the family to Torquay and the many beaches along the surf coast in 45mins.
We are a young community and have all of the growing pains one might expect with young people in our community, no more than anywhere else i read in the papers from time to time
To sum up i love my community and would recommend it as a great place to raise a family.
