"Boring; no amenities, public transport or a decent cafe."

The only thing you can see in Keysborough is houses. Estates crammed with cookie cutter overpriced homes.There are no restaurants, cafes or public transport. Not suitable for professionals or young. It is not a walkable suburb, you need a car to get to anywhere. It has some parks, but the noise from the freeways and 4 lanes highway drowns out any sort of peace.

"Lol"

Its a horrible place.. think about it your paying a mil for densely packed houses that are large but have barely any outdoor space. The roads are always busy and people always park on the road despite having driveways. The only close amenity highlight is Parkmore Shopping Centre.. THAT IS IT. Parkmore is horrible for what it is and is extremely outdated anyway. No cafes, street shops or decent restaurants. You need to travel 20 mins to get to a decent area for good food. Not KFC, Mcdonalds etc because thats all keysborough and its surrounding areas have. Extremely far away from the CBD which is horrible for its price point and its too near freeways so you can constantly here cars or drag racing. Only good thing about this whole suburb is the parks. It is full of beautiful parks and nature reserves more than i have seen in many suburbs. Public transport is laking.

"Somerfield Dream"

Somerfield is a new development part of Keysborough, ranging from a small corner block home, to a large double story mansion. It is a highly recommended area with many young family and professionals living there. Very family friendly orientated neighbourhood and nicely built homes.

"Nice suburb, but Noble Park North is the "Hidden Gem" right next door!"

Keysborough has some nice houses, but is now unaffordable for the average buyer.
Noble Park North is a safe, family friendly suburb with M1 and M3 freeways, Waverley Gardens Shopping Centre and excellent schools. Ignore the "Noble Park" part of the title, this area is going to boom once people realise the potential. Excellent public transport. If you are looking at Keysborough as an option, the smart & savvy buyer should strongly consider looking next door!

''Ignore the "Noble Park" part of the title''... right... and ignore the thuggery and criminal activities of some of the lovely denizens of Noble Park? No thanks. It is bad enough that Dandenong and Noble Park are next to Keysborough, and the people in Keysborough have to deal with hooligans from Dandenong and Noble Park, who race through the small roundabouts on weekend nights... However, Noble Park has excellent ethnic food and exotic prostitutes. I visit Noble Park often, I just would not live there.

Noble Park North is a very safe suburb - completely different to Dandenong and Noble Park

"The neighbourhood is beatiful and luxurious"

Keysborough is the opposite of neighbouring Dandenong. It's safe, it's pleasant and the atmosphere is close to perfection. I discovered that this place is home to many different nationalities (specifically from China, Vietnam, Turkey, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Greek). Therefore, the variety of restaurants were present and made the suburb very colourful indeed. The problem is the shopping centres aren't as accessible or easy to visit because of the busy highway (Cheltenham Road) in the mornings where cars travel constantly.

"Awesome surroundings close to many spacious parks with everything you need close-by"

We moved to Keysborough South for almost a year. Loving the surrounding parks, GP, dentist, woolies close to where we live.
Parkmore shopping centre could be a little rowdy at times and the parking is a little messy, but overall acceptable to get a great variety of food and grocery.

"Somerfield... mostly good."

A great place to live... nice parks / playgrounds and neighbour's. My biggest complaint is the super slow Internet.. being in Somerfield means you're locked into the telstra "velocity" smart community Fibre optic internet, which boasts to be a super speed Internet, but fails miserably! At times I often struggle to view a YouTube video which is pathetic! The next annoyance in living here is the weekend drag racing which we can hear possibly coming from greens Rd or the dandenong bypass.. This is a weekly occurrence I think the police can't be bothered with.

Great for

  • Good Access to EastLink
  • Great Private Schools
  • Excellent Familly Suburb
  • Nice Golf Course
  • Plenty of parks

Not great for

"New developments for suburban living"

Growing up in Noble Park as a kid was always fun, moved yo Narre Warren as a late teen, to South Yarra in early 20s and then to Bentleigh. Soon will find my way back to where I started in Keysborough, next to Noble Park. I wanted to build but didn't want to move too far out from the CBD. Being only 25kms from the city, 5kms from the beach seemed like the perfect option. Local shopping is perfect and love being able to go to Springvale next door to get a cheap asian feast. This suburb will only get better. Due to the affordability in the new estates only the middle class will move in, meaning it will be safer and friendlier environment. Cant wait to move in.

"Just a little overpriced for suburbian living"

It's a lovely place to live, it has Parkmore, a prestigious school and a decent pub. But there's nothing else going for it, Keysborough is just plain boring. It's not close to any train station and even when you make the 10 minute drive to Noble Park station, there's never any parking. Keysborough is extremely overpriced, and people there have payed to much to live there. I think its a great place to invest, but if you were planning on living there everyday i would recommend going somewhere more lively, and interesting. Keysy is boring, unless you like simple things then Keysborough is prefect for you!

Great for

  • Keysy Pub
  • K-Bar
  • Good Access to EastLink
  • Great Private Schools
  • Excellent Familly Suburb

Not great for

  • Boring
  • Parkmore is the main attraction
  • Way overpriced small housing lots

"Awesome yet a tad disappointed!"

I moved here from just down the road expecting a lot more but so far, I haven't seen that "more". I don't drive and it sucks having NO public transport/buses running in the area. If it were just myself, it'd be fine seeing as I could walk to Cheltenham Rd for a bus but I have a 3 year old & we can't exactly walk on the side of the road to get there to Parkmore which is where the closest to get a bus is. I hate being woken by the builders banging and hammering away! NOBODY appreciates waking up everyday angry. The area is still growing so I'm expecting changes to come.

There are no milk bars that are in close walking distance to get milk etc.

"Great family suburb"

Moved into the new Somerfield Estate in Keysborough and what a great move it has been. We are a young family and there are plenty of parks and schools around. Neighbours are all very friendly and are either young couples starting out or families.

Keysborugh is situated in a great location because its not too far from the city but far enough that you dont get the drunks and knife fights of the inner city. However if you need to go into the city Eastlink & Monash freeway get you there in no time, i work in Richmond and it only takes me 1/2 hour to get in.

Very safe suburb, take walks with the little one all the time and never felt unsafe. As mentioned i work in the inner city and there are places i wouldnt take my kids around there, see drug deals in broad daylight.

Alot of shopping options, Parkmore is quite good for the day to day stuff but you also have Chadstone, Southland and Dandenong that are not very far, all within 15 mintues. Food spots in the area are not bad, mainly fast food but there are a few restuarants popping up.

Optical fibre in the new estates makes the internet a dream and recycle water is also a good addition for the garden, don't have to worry about water restrictions.

All in all a great place to raise a family.

Seen a few negative comments on this site, but they just seem to be from people who wish they could live in the suburb but cant afford it...

I totally agree I feel so safe here and have only lived her one week and already have lots of friends! Our 5 year old daughter knows all the neighborhood kids its incredible the sense of community! I love living here! Coming from living in a snobby neighborhood in bentleigh which was more about what car you drove and what your occupation was than what type of person you were. Here it's amazing the diversity you have people from all over the world. Half our area doesn't speak English very well but we all have the commonality of wanting the best for our kids and communicate just fine. I love living here!

"Great Place for Families"

We love it in Keysborough, we are in one of estates and love all the parks and reserves.
There are always lovely places to take walks and playgrounds for the kids to play.
It is also very quite and the people are nice and friendly. Plenty of established amenities, shops, medicals centres, childcare / schools etc.
Conveniently located to Eastlink and as assortment of recreation facilities (Keysborough golf course/ Springers Leisure Centre)
Close to Springvale for vietnamese restaurants, close to Edithvale Beach, close to major shopping - Southland.

Overall a great suburb with nice houses, nice parks, great amenities and still good value for money

"A perfect place to bring up young families"

Ok, in reply to the 2 reviews below: Let's be fair! Waterways is NOT part of Keysborough, its actually a different suburb, so mentions of flooding that occurred there shouldn't even be mentioned in a review for Keysborough. Secondly, since when does having Vietnamese or Indian families living in a suburb make it a bad one?! We are all Australians in the end aren't we?

And now for the proper review:

We've found Keysborough to be a lovely, peaceful place to live in and its a fantastic place to bring up our (young) family. Its quiet, safe, and provides a lot of good local amenities (Parkmore shopping center is a godsend!). Yes, the blocks in the new estates are getting smaller and smaller, but what else is new? We just take the kids to the nearby parks! As for the prices, well I guess that's very much a personal opinion isn't it? But for the record, I think the prices are fair in comparison to the rest of Melbourne,

There's a good community vibe here, and we don't regret for one second for moving here. Of course, there's the added bonus of being so close to the EastLink...and the Keysborough golf course!

"Too overpriced & high crime rate."

Don't understand why people are paying so much to live in a place that is over priced, dirty and not the most safest suburb in Melbourne.

Just because there are new estates, people are being fooled into spending a lot of money to buy something new but not worth the value.

But in saying that it is a good place to invest. Reason is because there will always be foolish people, mainly migrants from Asia who will spend ridicules amounts of money to buy near Springvale (Another suburb which is over priced). So for live it is not so good, but for investing it is good.

Not great for

  • Boring mediocre Comunty Atmosphere
  • No Local shopping facilities
  • Way overpriced small housing lots

Being away from train staion is good , no junkies hanging around. Long way is 40 min train ride from springvale to southern cross ... seriously ?
Dirty? "Mr Nameless" with new estates ?, hope you not confusing it with noble park area close to noble park staion. People who can't afford to live in keysborugh will come up with silly excuses to name and shame the suburb.

When he says "dirty" he is not referring to the new estates, he is referring to the builders that build them (and are lining their pockets whilst ripping of unsuspecting buyers). Though I'm not sure if they are doing anything wrong. First home buyers grant also helps the young ones get in the market.
