"Its a Lifestyle"

Most people come to Jan Juc to escape the crowds of beach goers in Torquay and Bells Beach, But it has so much to offer!

Stunning part of the cost line with some of the best real estate you can find in Victoria. Perfect area for young families. Locals are alway happy for a chat and although the town is getting more built up it still has the feel of a coastal town.

The commute to Geelong and Melbourne have become so easy over the last few years as well.

"Tightly Held and Arguably the Best of the Surf Coast"

Known as Torquay’s sister suburb – the quieter, manicured and tightly held. Jan Juc is an incredibly beautiful costal town, located at the beginning of the Great Ocean Road. It’s incredibly green, lush and friendly. There are some hidden gems with Swell Eatery available (please COVID be done so breakfast can be enjoyed here again!), beautiful walking tracks, the famous Bird Rock cliff and Jan Juc Beach.

In terms of suburb growth, over the last 12 months the median sale price as increased 4.6% to $915K, whilst the rental yield has increase 2.6% to $460 per week. A huge 75% of homes are owner occupied (or holiday lets) and 22% are rentals.

A lot of rental properties are home to multiple young adults – with the coastal lifestyle so sort after, the only way to make renting affordable for the younger generation is to share the cost. Of course there are families and couple that rent here as well, but more than 25% of occupants are between 20-29.

If you’re after a sleepy, stunning coastal town (in every month apart from summer), Jan Juc is a no brainer!

"A great place to bring up kids, or for anyone who wants to live somewhere peaceful and friendly"

The Juc is a friendly, safe, pretty place to live. Everything you need is there and also within reach of Melbourne, with much lower house prices than Greater Melbourne and a fantastic outdoor lifestyle.
You can still get great coffee and food in the area, and all the shopping you could need is within a 10 minute drive.
Great for kids, couples, retirees - not sure about singles over their teens!! Most people seem to move to Melbourne for their early to mid 20's and then come back. There isn't much nightlife around....
Love, love, love it.

"A fantastic place for families and surfers"

We lived in Jan Juc for nearly ten years while our children were young. It was a fantastic environment for kids as we could let them run free without worrying about them all the time. They'd be all over the neighbourhood, in and out of each other's houses and making cubbies down by the river. They grew up with whales, dolphins, parrots and all sorts of other wildlife. They learned to surf and would go straight to the beach after school for months at a time. The schools were world-class and it was very accessible to Melbourne. It's even more so now, with the opening of the ring road, but we can't take advantage of that anymore! But if you want shopping malls and cinemas, Geelong is only 15 mins up the road.
There are lovely restaurants and bars, great retail and excellent coffee. All in all, it was a lovely, friendly, safe and peaceful place to live and we miss it.

Rentals in Jan Juc

"Great amenities in a wonderful location"

Just out of Torquay but a town in its own right you get the best of everything. Close to a fairly major centre to get everything you need but just out of it to give you a more country, more relaxed feel.
Kindergartens close by make for a great spot for young families. Add to that the great amenities like wonderful parks with playgrounds and tennis courts and you are in family heaven.
But the relaxed lifestyle would work equally well for retirees. No matter what you time in life, this could make the perfect sea change. With Geelong within cooee and Melbourne an hour and a half away you're never far from anything but have the best of the beach and country feel.
