"Great Suburb in the west"

One of the best suburbs in the west! The suburb has great access to shopping centres CSSQUARE (Local), Watergardens (Massive). This suburb and it surroundings have been growing at a crazy rate so parking in CSSquare is becoming challenging. You can drive to city although not recommended during peak hours. Driving to city is only 25 mins during off-peak times. There are many parks in the area so families can have great time. It has numerous walking/biking tracks. Its only 6km from both watergardens and keilor plains railway stations and CS station is underway.
Pros
  • Only 23km from city
  • Great facilities
  • Beautiful surrounds
  • Parks and Lakes
  • Safe
Cons
  • Needs a train station
  • Need 24 hrs police station

"Caroline Springs"

Caroline Springs isn't too far from the CBD which is good for people who work in the city. Also has great shopping centres nearby. Facilities are close by. Plenty of big parks to walk your dog, or go to with the family. We defiantly need a train station. Internet is shocking where we live. We can't get unlimited, and black spots in certain pockets of Caroline Springs. Need 24hrs police station because residents have to wait for police officers to come from sunshine and melton. We can't rely on them coming from other areas, especially if it's a major emergency.
Pros
  • Only 23km from city
  • Great facilities
  • Parks and Lakes
Cons
  • Needs own cinema
  • Needs a train station
  • internet

"Best Paradise in the West"

We have lived in CS for almost 6 years and still loving it. This place never fails to "WOW" my guests from overseas, and even friends living in other estates like Point Cook, Werribee and Eastern side of Mel are impressed with how beautiful and organised this neat little town is. All well equipped with lots of walking trails, lakes, parks, schools, supermarkets, shops, restaurants, gym, sports oval, and even hotels. There are also Masters, Bunnings, Officeworks and car retails lining at the edge. To top it, we have fantastic friendly neighbours to complete the comforts of strolling in the street and feeling safe. The only regret is the proposed train station is taking forever to start construction, and yeah.. the internet can be a little inconsistent with the speed at times. On the whole, we simply love CS and will always will.

"Jewel of the west"

It is grand and beautiful. Each estate has its uniqueness, such as The Bridges Estate which is arguably the most prestigious estate in the Springs, even though I find the whole of Caroline Springs beautiful and prestigious. There are lakes, parks, walking paths, everything ideal for fitness goers. It is like a city of its own and is fastly developing. People here are friendly, classy and respectful. It is a happy suburb and I am definitely happy in Caroline Springs...it is hard to feel down with such beautiful surroundings and beautiful homes. If you feel down just go to the park..you cannot get lazy here..ideal for young growing families. I love it here!

"Nice and quiet town but taking a turn"

Very nice and peaceful town in the last 11 years I've lived here. Local development has been massive with new parks, shops, recreation facilities etc. On a good run it only takes 25-30mins to get to the city. School time traffic is pretty bad. CS is probably one of the cleanest towns but lately I'd say that vandalism is increasing with graffiti in parks and bus shelters getting smashed every time they get fixed. I am very very disappointed with the internet. I can't get adsl at both my parents and my house which is why I'm going sell up. Hopefully my parents get hooked up soon. For a relatively new suburb the internet is pathetic. I will miss the peace and quiet when I move out.

"Cant go wrong!"

I have lived here the past 2 years from east suburb and worked in CBD. I am glad I have made a right decision to move into this suburb as compare to a much talk about PC or SL. Driving to work is never an issue to me regardless peak or off-peak hour. My kids enjoyed heaps of parks and lakes. Streets are so well maintained and clean, and we felt so safe here. I felt this is one of the best suburb in Melbourne.

"Hidden Treasure"

Great place with some beautiful pockets. Diverse housing in the area ranging from prices of $400k to the $1m mark.
Great walking tracks. Excellent town centre with a great deal of restaurants.
Bypass has made it a dream run into the city with freeway access the whole way and no tolls either.
Now that the remaining parcels of land have been sold, Caroline Springs can establish itself as a complete suburb and price increases overtime shoulf reflect this.

"Best Suburb in Melbourne"

Caroline Springs is a wonderful place to live especially if you have kids. It has an abundance of gorgeous parks and walking tracks. It also has a number of lakes one of which leads into what is called the serpentine. The Serpentine is a lovely walk and you are sure to see different varieties of birds and ducks even swans & pelicans!!!! The facilities are mostly within walking distance from home for most residents with a library, 2 hotels, cafes, Target/Coles/IGA/Aldi at the local shopping centre, sports ovals and gyms, tennis courts, etc. What more could you ask for?

"Caroline Springs is a wonderful place to live."

We moved here a year ago from Keilor Downs and could not be happier
Positives :-
Fresh, new and clean. Schools, shops and lake well placed and in walking distance of your place
Negatives (only a few) :-
Shopping trolley management poor by Coles (found laying around everywhere including a occasional one in the lake), internet broadband to slow (ADSL1 only) and roads need some work.
Looking forward to
Commercal Rd, Westwood Dr, new Hotel (Lake Street) and new wet lands (Central Parkway/Lake Street) completed, should increase property prices around that area soon after that

"Best place to live"

Caroline Springs is a wonderful place to live. We moved here 5 years ago and could not be happier. Our house has increased in value over that time, making us very pleased with our investment.
Neighbours are friendly and kind.

My one criticism of Caroline Springs is Caroline Springs Blvd. The road itself is in terrible condition (full of pot-holes) and is overloaded with traffic during peak hours and school times. Better planning was needed for smoother flow of traffic.

Apart from that one negative, we are very happy here and have no plans to move!

"A nice suburb that is starting to get very busy but has grown in an orderly fashion"

A really good friend of mine lives there. She bought in at the start. I have always loved how it has a very nice entrance past a lake. Most streets look nice. Like with most new estates there is not much of a community spirit it is not as bad as some people.

"Great place for families"

We have lived in Caroline Springs nearly for a year and we love it.
The people in the area are just so nice and its great for people with kids.
Its really like a place of its own. I has a lot of benefits including:
New Bypass in Deer Park
30min drive to city
New recreations centre to be built by 2014 including public swimming pool
Great parks in every village
Quite peaceful and quiet
Easy to naviate you car thru roads etc
Major shopping centre Watergardens 15 mins away
Great for the older generation, there are few retirement villages to choose from
Smaller shopping Centre with nearly everything you need incl Coles, IGA, Aldi and Target and due for expansion again in few years
Great house prices and resell values too
Overall a lovely place to live.

"A nice suburb with city style living"

Caroline Springs was my favourite area to live in, i intend to move back again with my family soon. Apart from the hoon drivers at night its a gorgeous area with lots of social networks for everyone especially mothers. The Lake in CS Square is a great walk and a great day out with bubs not too mention coffee and food places to meet with friends. Restaurants and coffee joints could do with being a bit more child friendly as they dont really cater for women with children that great. Would highly recommend although can be a bit on the pricey side unless you want to live in a dive!!

"Caroline Springs - a great place to live"

From our experience and our friends' experiences, we believe that Caroline Springs is a great suburb to live in. There are homes suited to all tastes and are in all shapes and sizes on land to suit all purposes. It has been great to live here as it is not far from the city. We have great access to freeways connecting us quickly to the city, the Eastern and Northern Suburbs, or over to Geelong and Great Ocean Road or the beautiful bush towards Daylesford etc. It is a great place for families and couples, with pretty lakes, walking tracks, parks, playgrounds, restaurants and great shopping areas close by. Good schools too!! Great facilities such as a library, recreation centre, gym, learn-to-swim centre, hotel for guests, with more facilities being built. Safe place, great place, we love it, our kids love it and we have loved it since we bought our home here over 2 years ago. Give Caroline Springs a go, you won't be disappointed. We're not.

"Caroline Springs' area"

In my opinion, Caroline Springs is a great place to live. I have been living here for 4 years. I feel safe when I walk on my own at night time (compared to where I used to live in Clayton). The area is quiet, peaceful, clean and affordable. Besides, the development has grown rapidly with many shops, food stores, child cares, just to name a few.....

I have a mate who were considering to purchase a new home between Caroline Springs and Point Cook. He did all the homework and decided to purchase one in Caroline Springs.

The infrastructure is also keeping up with the population growth, ie: the completion of Deer Park Bypass (reduce travel time) and proposed Caroline Springs train station.

The only Con I have is the frequency of the bus. I wish the bus could run more frequently.

To sum up, I have never been regret living in Caroline Springs.

yogi Jane,

You are correct in you summary and think the area is only getting better as it is fairly new and still developing. The bus services in the nearest suburbs are just as bad, I normally drive to Sydenham station and catch the train to the station it's far quicker and more direct.

JaneYoung Hello Yogi,

I have never parked my car at Watergarden Train Station.
My neighbour used to park his car at the Watergarden Train Station to catch the train to work. One afternoon, his car was stolen.

How long have you been parking your car at the station?

yogi Hi Jane,

I have been catching the train at Watergardens for over three years now and I guess maybe I have been lucky. I agree with you about cars getting stolen at train stations however it is all stations not just Watergardens. When I parked my ford TX5 Telstar I did expect something as the type of car was older and very desirable amongst the thieves wanting to use my car for a joy ride. Armed with this information I had a $600 alarm installed on it with shock detection and two forms of isolation, always made sure nothing of value was left in my car and a good quality steering lock which was highly visible. I think I made it difficult enough for it not to be such a target. If you see the annual reports on car theft you would see that shopping centres are the number one hot spots. I think if you do everything you can to make your car not become a statistic you will be luckier. Unfortunately no one is protected from theft and it's only getting worse everywhere. Sad to say. Thanks for your feedback and hopefully I have given you some constructive feedback. Have a happy New Year. Cheers. Richard

yogi Lib, I doubt you even know were you live.
Caroline Springs is a safe new vibrant area for families or retirees a like. There are always new shops and infrastructure going up. There is a swimming facility, library, loads of park land and sporting facilities, medical centres a new hotel and numerous state and private schools in the area. The only thing that is missing is a train station which is on the cards, mind you the Sydenham electrified train station is only under 10 minute drive away. If your not happy with Caroline Springs maybe the city life is more your style.

kek Lib, I lived in Caroline Springs for almost 10 years and it is a very nice place to live. The developer has delivered in everything they promised from day one. Not many developers do that. In fact its much better than anyother area around the West. I have lived in many nice areas i.e. Williamstown and I can tell you that CS is always an option for me. Your review is flawed... I hope real estate gets rid of it.
