"Really love the Area"

I used to love inner city and over the years the congestion has created to me a very unliveable environment. We moved further out for some piece and quiet and bayswater nth is the closest we get whilst still being near to CBD. This suburb is developing and becoming a safer area to live. You still get the average hoon and shady person here and their but thats normal this way.

"I’ve lived here most of my life, love it."

My parents bought a house here before I was born.
I grew up here, moved around as a young adult but I always found my way back to Bayswater North, it’s home :)
I brought my child up here too, she went to the local Primary School as I did and had a great education and experience.
A lot of people complain about the noise from the main roads, which I live very close to. I’m used to it and it doesn’t bother me, I sleep just fine each night.
Wherever you go, you’ll find pros and cons, but for me I find Bayswater North a pretty safe and friendly place to live.

"Noisy, Run Down"

Lived here for several years and finally got out recently. As a mixed industrial area undergoing a construction boom it's always been noisy, but has gotten worse in recent years. Lots of truck noise all times of day & night, trailbikers on the bike paths and hooning down tight suburban streets at night, burnouts at nearby Market Dr and once in front of my house, some residents playing loud music til late, the constant rumble of bogan cars going back and forth and beeping at each other (and one guy who likes to rev his engine loudly several times after 11pm), and it's surrounded by warehouses doing late-night deliveries - one just over the Dandenong Creek Trail at the bottom of White Ave / Hamilton Rd that goes all night intermittently, and a warehouse on Canterbury Rd where you can hear trucks reversing and dumping heavy loads with a loud metallic crash from 3:30-5am nightly (pray you're a heavy sleeper).
On top of that, there's plenty of graffiti, garbage dumping in nature areas (council did nothing the one time I reported it), police regularly cruising down Glen Park Rd and police helicopter circling overhead, have seen cops responding to domestic disputes and forming roadblocks waiting for someone in particular, and police arresting drivers right in front of my house, people don't walk their dogs on leads and don't pick up after them, and there are a few paranoid druggos around (one guy once spraypainted on his own garage door, "I know who are, stay out"). Oh also someone once removed all the drain covers on the footpaths (a vandal - there weren't cordoned off for works or anything), so someone could've fallen in and badly hurt themselves. Hooray for Bayswater North!

On the plus side, most people say g'day when you pass them, and you can walk all the way to Mt Dandenong along the creek trail, though it's not that tranquil with warehouses bordering it most of the way. Still has some decent-sized blocks, though most are being turned into units, and wide roads, but with all the units there are usually cars parked on both sides of the road making them mostly single-lane like the rest of suburban Melbourne. Also I think the portion of the suburb north of Canterbury Rd might be better than the southern part, though you'd still have the late night Canterbury Rd warehouse noise.

"Very friendly, country like area,"

I live in Elmhurst rd Bayswater North and I love the area. The street I live in is full of units and some houses . A lot of middle aged people or retirees are on this street. It’s very well kept and people seem to look after their gardens which is always a good sign because it shows they care. There are a lot of friendly dog walkers and bike riders in the area as the bike tracks are exceptional as is public transport and recreational areas of all kinds. The bp service station on the corner is very handy and very friendly people work there. I always check people number plates if parked in the street and report them to council if the car is unregistered to keep the riff raff out. Council inspectors are out the same day or the next morning if I report an unregistered or stolen vehicle which has happened once before and I watched the 6 police officers arrest the guy at 2am in the morning after I reported it. It was very exciting to watch!!! I’ve lived in victoria my whole life including the following suburbs for at least 3 years: PAKENHAM, Endeavour Hills, aspendale, noble park, springvale south.

"A wonderful place to raise a family"

A fantastic suburb for young couples, professionals and even raising a family. 30km from Melbourne city in leafy eastern suburb. So close to Dandenong Ranges National Park which just like your big backyard. Great public transport and local amenities, shops, schools and parks. Proximity to major shopping centres including Eastland, Costco, and Westfield Knox. Safe and family friendly suburb to live in!

Great for

  • Leafy and green space with plenty of parklands
  • Close to many shopping centres
  • Newly redeveloped train station
