"40 Minutes to the city"

Academy Drive is a safe frinedly area at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges. A bike path at the end of street connects with other cycle paths in the area. Healthy environment to raise children. Very close to two schools. A Government primary and St Bernadette's Catholic primary. Both excellent schools.

Cafes nearby offer gourmet coffee and treats. And there is a great bakery close at hand. The Thai restaurant and the Tavern are both great for a meal and are walking distance.

All up Academy Drive offers the resident a fantastic family orientated environment to call home. Well cared for homes in a no through road!
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Large blocks
  • Family friendly
Cons
  • A bit far from the station
