Reviews of Glenthompson, VIC

23rd September 2020

"KEEP AWAY DONT MOVE THERE"

Don't waste your time or money, this town has nothing going for it and its residents have a very low Socioeconomic status. They are looked down on from both Hamilton and Ararat communities. Go look at Dunkeld which is the next town about 20km towards Hamilton, its safe and great if you have children, its where the normal people live.

"Unfortunately not as good as it once was. Overpriced and Overrated!"

I have lived in the area for 15 years and unfortunately over the last few years this suburb has lost some of its gloss and character.

Great for

  • Most facilities are close by and readily available
  • Strathmore is close to the CBD by road & public transport
  • Good schools and sporting facilities; mostly good size homes on big blocks

Not great for

  • Many new homes totally not in keeping with the tastefull character of the suburb have now been built in most streets
  • Speeding traffic is on the increase despite most thru roads now having speed humps installed
  • Burglaries in my street alone are now common place, as are teens and youths roaming the streets at night

"Moonee Valleys best kept secret!"

With a strong combination of quality homes, great educational facilities and excellent transport options, Strathmore is now the most popular suburb for many of Moonee Valley’s young and growing families. Broad in size, it extends north from Woodland Street up to Mascoma Street and around the back of Essendon Airport (Strathmore Heights) virtually to the doorstep of Westfield Shopping Centre. Architectural styles also vary throughout the suburb from 1920s Californian Bungalows to post-war weatherboards in the southern end whilst towards Strathmore Heights sees a growing proportion of 1960s/70s brick veneer homes. Numerous parks are well positioned across the suburb including Napier Park, Strathnaver and Boeing Reserves. Local schools have excellent reputations – in particular Strathmore Secondary College which is one of the area’s strong family drawcards. Access in and out of Strathmore is also excellent with a range of transport options including train (Strathmore Station) and bus services (479, 501) plus the convenience of Citylink/Tullamarine Freeway enabling a trip to the CBD, Docklands or Melbourne Airport in around 10 minutes.
