"Peaceful Bliss, with all the required conveniences"

It's all about family living, relaxing and being a stones throw away from excellent shopping centres, quality food, public schools and beautiful parks. Safe quiet neighbourhood with mainly middle and upper class residents. The convenience of having one of the few non tolled freeways is brilliant.
Pros
  • low crime rates
  • excellent restuarants nearby
  • close to three shopping centres less than 5 mins away
Cons
  • no trains, but excellent bus routes
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Families with kids

"A City For All Seasons"

Doncaster East has it all. A cosmopolitan dining and shopping precinct, quality schools, retirement villages and options, Eastern Freeway access and family-friendly streets. Tunstall Square immediately comes to mind when thinking about dinner plans, a special gift for a friend or a new look. The Milgate Park Estate, off Anderson's Creek Rd, is a particular area that is favoured for its many parks and proximity to Milgate Primary School and Our Lady of the Pines Primary School. Bordering Donvale, Doncaster East is well serviced by buses leaving from most main roads and busy streets - they'll take you to the nearby shopping mecca, Westfield Doncaster, schools and industry hubs at the afore mentioned shopping districts.
