"Simply Perfect"

Dehnert St is located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne also know as the "Leafy Eastern Suburbs" of Melbourne. Running parallel and between both George Street and Doncaster Rd, Dehnert is a small, type street with a community feel. This street is an ideal place to live and is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, public transport, schools and parkland.

The street is well presented with 70's style brick homes, and new developments being proposed. There is a wide nature strip and newly planted tree's given it then 'green' feel. There are a number of schools within walking distance and a primary school actually being in the street. There is easy access to the city with bus services running on either side of the street, going into the city and the eastern freeway being not even a 5 min drive away.

A few minutes away there is the Jackson Court shops which offers a range of small shops, including a bakery, pharmacy, news agency, fruit-shop, and Dan Murphy's! There are also numerous restaurants and cafes. And for those shopaholics, Doncaster Westfield is just over a 5 minute drive.

Overall, Dehnert St is lively, community style place to live, with most of the residents being professionals, retirees and young families. It certainly does tick all of the boxes!!!
  • Easy access to the city with bus services on either end of the street.
  • Within walking distance to shops such as Jackson Court and Schools (Doncaster Gardens/East Doncaster High)..
  • Surrounded by parkland with more than 6 parks within 5 min waking distance
  • Busy with Meals on Weels Centre on the corner.

"Noisy hoonville"

Dehnert Street is a hoon thoroughfare, punctuated by functions and parties held at the Senior Citizens Hall. The Hall is hired out almost every night of the week. While living in Dehnert Street I strenously complained to the Council about the use of the Hall and the overflow of cars which park all along Dehnert Street when a function is being held. I found Dehnert Street noisy and unliveable and I have moved away. I would advise caution to anyone considering living in Dehnert Street. During my 18 months there (corner of Dehnert and Champion Streets) there were several instances of extreme hooning including burnouts and speeding cars. Neighbours banded together and complained en masse to Crime Stoppers about particular hoons.
