"Beautiful Suburb Perfect for Young Families"

Been living in a few suburbs in Melbourne and I must say Glen Iris is one of the best. Good access to schools and beautiful established tree line in many streets. Perfect area for young families.

"Friendly"

This review is of the Booroondoora section of Glen Iris. Very green and lots of primary schools. Close enough to drive to other areas like Camberwell junction but doesn’t actually have any shopping strip of its own. Lacks a village. Also lots of demolition and new builds which affects heritage in the area. Overall safe and convenient but doesn’t have walkability of surrounding areas as no village or character shops.

"fabulous suburb with parks and tree lined streets"

While I visited it was one of the wettest days in recent history. However, the charm and feel of the area was clear. This is a nice place to live.

During the day on the weekends it is nice and quiet, and very little through traffic on the streets making it a great place to raise a family. Its not a long trip into the city and the area is serviced well by public transport. There is a lot to like about Glen Iris.
