"Growing Town with Excellent Facilities"

One of the real up and coming towns in Victoria. Ideally situated, 20 minutes from Geelong, 35 minutes from Torquay, 45 minutes from Ballarat and 65 minutes from Melbourne.

The township has all the facilities you could ask for, including Bank, Chemist, Petrol, full-sized Safeway, Pub, Doctors, Dentists, Schools, Sports Centres, Ovals etc.

There is a lot of growth going on around the town, and the town will only grow better and prosper more over time.

BLT Looking forward to moving to Bannockburn - semi rural with everything you could need close at hand or not too far away. Hope there is lots of bird life so I can hear birds singing in the morning.
