"Great lifestyle town just 1 hour from Melbourne"

Great little town, in a stunning setting, with land and house prices still affordable.

I’m not an agent, but with its transport links, big blocks and lifestyle options, I suspect this will be the next suburb/town to experience significant growth.

"Lovely town, just an hour from the CBD!"

Love Broadford. It’s just over an hour from Melbourne’s CBD via car, or train.

Biggest positives are the community spirit; the peace and quiet; the convenience; and the size of the lots you can still get here.

Why do people want a 450m2 lot in a suburb when they can get a 1,000m2 lot in Broadford?

The town is growing with a ton of good quality new builds going up on the estates. Tons of established houses are being renovated and renewed as folk venture out from the city to nicer, less crowded places.

Only negative for me is the lack of a Coles, or Woolies. I suspect one will come before long.

"Lovely town - but a bit unfriendly"

I moved here about a year ago and commute to Melbourne for work each day. I really like living here - it's s very pretty town with lots of trees and surrounded by hills. Unfortunately I have to say that it's just a little bit too far from Melbourne, so I'm considering moving again. The commute in the morning is ok, but in the afternoon, when you just want to get home, it's a bit of a drag. I work at Melb Uni and it takes about 1.5 hours door-to-door using the train and a bit less in the car. The V/Line train is great - runs at least once an hour, seven days a week, and it's clean, comfortable and good value for money. Also close to the Hume Freeway, but most of the town is far enough away that you can't hear the traffic, except on very still nights.

Although my neighbours are nice, if I have one criticism of the town itself, I would say that it's not as friendly as other country towns I've lived in or visited. Even in nearby Seymour and Kilmore, the people seem to be a lot friendlier. But I still think I prefer Broadford, because it's a much more attractive and peaceful town.

Great for

  • Lots of trees and clean air
  • Quiet
  • Good transport links to Melbourne

Not great for

  • A bit isolated
