"Happy to have Purchased"

We moved into our own home, after renting in Caroline springs, this year and are very happy. There is certainly a difference of class between the new suburbs and Keilor downs, it has a charm of its own. The areas of Keilor downs near Taylor's lakes are even better, ofcourse you may have to pay a slight premium for those properties.
Pros
  • Proximity by Public Transport
  • Clean and Green
  • Parks and Recreation for Children
  • Very Close to Shopping Centers

"lovely, quiet and classy suburb"

Have been living here for over a year. I was very lucky to buy a house at a reasonable price. So far, i am so happy with my decision. I am working in the city, in the morning, it is pretty easy to catch a train from Keilor Plain Station to the city. It takes only about 30 mins.

Pros:
Love the atmosphere of this suburb, houses are nice with well-maintained gardens and lots of trees around too. Spotless and spacious streets. Plenty of room for car park.
Great investment, you can get a huge land with very good price in this suburb. In addition, it is very easy to rent it out too. I have been renting out 2 bedrooms in my big 4 bedroom house within a week putting up the ad.
Easy access to Western Ring Road, Tullamarin Freeway. Otherwise, for CBD commuters, there is Keilor Plain train station take you to the cbd.
Facilities: Keilor Shopping Centre, Water Garden Shopping Centre are close by. St Albans Leisure Centre provides basic stuff for gym lovers. I personally do not recommend the swimming pools there, they are not deep enough for aldults.
Schools: I have not had kids but seem like quite a fair bit of schools around.

Cons: limited number of caf and no boutique shops. Do not expect to get fancy stuff from the shops here.

"Peaceful and Classy"

Lucky to have purchased a home when the prices were right. Highly recommended. With the recent interest in this area I have rented 2 of my properties with a very good rental. Both properties were just on the edge of Taylor's lakes and has a very nice neighborhood. Good Investment!!

"Oh...what a lovely suburb!"

Oh what a suburb. Ever since moving here in 2013 we have been enjoying every minute of it. Its so close to the shopping centers (watergardens, Keilor and TayorsLakes) that my wife and me usually take a walk for small shopping. Very peaceful and safe with mostly established people around this is really a hidden gem. Before you make any buying decisions do drive down this suburb atleast once and you will see the point.

"Great Value for Money"

After researching through all major suburbs in Melbourne for buying a house we found Keilor downs as the suburb offering the highest value for money. Nice, clean and green suburb with lovely well spaced houses and overall less than 30 mins from City by train. It is flanked by three shopping centers ( watergardens, Taylors lakes and Keilor) making it really convenient for buying stuff.

It was a really good decision to buy a home here and we are loving it.

"Good Life"

I have lived in Keilor Downs for more than 25 years now. We have never had any issues & live in a lovely quiet street with walking distance to parks & shopping Centres. Me and my family just love it. It is a short drive to the Melbourne Airport and only 20 minute drive to Melbourne CBD. Its close to the ring road so you can get to Epping to Geelong ver quickly. We medical facilities, Sunshine hospital is 10 minutes away, and train stations near by. Keilor Downs is within the heart of everything that you need without the traffic. Police station is walking distance & so is the fire brigade. This is a great suburb where people stay for the long term .... Its great for raising a family or for couples.

"Easy place to live"

Most people are home owners not renters. Lots parks and open space. Brimbank park and Green Gully around the corner. There is a Police Station, Medical Clinics and Keilor Downs shopping plaza, Coles, Kmart and Aldi. Taylors Lakes Shopping Centre and Watergardens just a few minutes drive. Great Vietnamise Restaraunts in St Albans. Keilor Plains train station is walking distance, and buses near by. No ugly overhead powerlines and streets aren't narrow and clotophobic like newer estates. Great place for families with kids with reasonable size back yards.easy to get to Calder Hwy, Ring Road to Geelong or Surfcoast, and only 15mins from Airport.

"Dont buy"

It looks far better than it lives. Couldn't wait to get in when first buying, judged a book by its cover. Really couldn't wait to get out though, shocking two years of my life I'll never get back.
It's like a dressed up St.Albans. On the outside looking in it appears to have it all. Scratch the surface a little though and find that aside from the newish houses, there isn't much there at all. If you want to shift out and have the dollars to do so, go find something Airport Westish or Keilor East. Older and better facilities all round for both younger and older families. Wouldn't move back if you paid me.
Pros
  • About the only thing it doesn't have but they'd do a roaring trade.
Cons
  • There's a reason somewhere why it is called 'Downs'

"Been living in Keilor Downs for almost 20 years.... Just Love It."

I have lived in Keilor Downs for almost 20 years now. I moved about 6 suburbs before settling down here. I just love it & so does my family. We have never had any issues & live in a lovely quiet street with walking distance to 3 children’s parks & 3 major shopping Centres. I seriously believe Keilor Downs is the most affordable suburb to live in. It is a 10 minute drive to Melbourne Airport & 20 minute drive to Melbourne CBD. We have 3 gym’s that are within walking distance & 2 train stations. Keilor Downs is within the heart of everything that you need without the traffic. Police station is walking distance & so is the fire brigade. The Sunshine hospital is only 10 minutes away. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this suburb.... love it.
