"A Small Suburb with Everything close by"

Hampton Park is well positioned between the vast network of Melbourne's Freeway system, making it easier to drive direct to City (then to west), South East, East and even north. It is very well serviced by good transport options (both trains and buses), surrounded by great shopping/restaurant choices (Hampton Park Shopping center, Westfield Fountain Gate, Lynbrook Village, Dandenong CBD etc), has many great schools and also has many bulk billing options. With lots of subdivisions and new projects happening within the suburb, i am sure soon it will be one of the sought after suburb.

"Becoming better"

Lived here for 7 years now, have seen a great shift on how Hampton Park is shaping out to be. Lot of school options, ranging from catholic to public schools. Health care facility right outside your door step, including a vet, a large grocery store (Coles, Safeway), and houses are quiet spacious. A lot of construction is being undertaken to expand the roads and give the place a more "green and lively" feel.
There are problems though. These include extremely high amounts of domestic violence, house break ins, substance abuse, and reckless drivers. For some reason, house break ins have increased dramatically, so far 6 have occurred in my street this year. The population here is of diverse cultures, making it easy to settle in. Age bracket in Hampton Park is towards the younger spectrum, which explains the high amounts of reckless hooligans in their ugly turbo charged cars. You will see a-lot of people who rely heavily on the welfare system here, due to the lower socioeconomic status of the area.
Pros
  • Variety of schools
  • Good access to transport and shops
  • Affordable housing
  • Multicultural
Cons
  • Domestic violence
  • Younger age cohort
  • High population relying extremely on centre link/dole.
  • A bit neglected by Council
  • Hoon drivers

"Well Positioned Suburb, with everything close by..."

Hampton Park is well positioned between Dandenong CBD and Fountain Gait - Narre Warren CBD. In demand with lots of new residential developments happening and is still affordable for first home buyers.
- Only 35 minutes drives (off peak) to Melbourne CBD or you can take a 50-55 minutes train ride from Hallam, Lynbrook or Narre Warren stations.
- The under-construction sky rail on Dandenong rail corridor will definitely improve the efficiency and boost the capacity of the entire rail corridor.
- Surrounded by two major freeways and two major highway systems, and also has many major artirial roads
- It has a Great Bus network connecting all transport and activity centers in the vicinity and across
- Local Hampton Park Shopping Center has all of your daily needs
- The Major Westfield Fountain Gate Shopping Center (Australia's second largest) is also close by
- Has many Bulk Billing Medical Center within the Suburb
- Has 5 Primary Schools and 1 Secondary Schools, and many child care centers
- Not far from the country side and very close to Mornington Penninsula and Gippsland regions
- Have choice of many beaches along Port Philip Bay (only 20-30 minutes drive, depending on the beach)

The only negative feedback I would give is that some of its road needs upgrading to cope with the increasing traffic.
Pros
  • Great Open Spaces
  • Good access to transport and shops
  • Well positioned suburb in the South Eastern Corridor

"Ronald"

Hampton Park is a suburb in south east with increasing demand. It has good public transport with Hallam station and also new Lynbrook station coming up, buses are available till 9pm. Its a very good place for families with lots of childcare and schools. Hampton park shopping centre is always busy and there are also bulk billing medical centres. Hampton park is multicultural with people of all parts of the world UK, Aussies, Sri Lanka, India, China, Middle east, NZ, and many European countries and South east Asian countries.
Also now there is an upgrade underway to Hallam south road which will control peak hour traffic.Only concern is you have to look out for hoon drivers.

"A great place to live for families or retirees"

A quiet suburb in close proximity to Dandenong and Fountain Gate Shopping Centre. Good amenities with good transport options via bus or train at Hallam Station. It is on the doorstep of Gippsland and an hours drive from Phillip Island and the Mornington Peninsula.There is good access to freeways and major highways. A 45 minute commute into the city via train during peak hour

It has a newly expanded library and a state of the art Performing Arts Centre at River Gum Primary School that can seat 500 people. There is good quality housing that suits a wide variety of tastes and prices and with lots of open spaces you will never feel hemmed in by suburbia here.
