"Evergreen suburb, great location."

Nestled between 2 beautiful parks, this small suburb is an upcoming! Close to shopping malls, La Trobe University and all the necessary amenities. Great area for families.

"Hidden gem!"

Kingsbury is a hidden gem. It's a tiny suburb which is why usually people are unaware of its existence, but it sits in such an amazing location! Between Reservoir and Bundoora, it's very close to two shopping villages and close to public transport. It's awesomely close to a huge dog park and very close to La Trobe University and schools. Houses are still very old there but slowly there have been new developments which is changing the looks of the place.

"Kingsbury"

Good suburb to live in. Close to Bundoora. Over the last few years housing prices have gone up. Plenty of schools around and heaps of public transport

Jazz
Jazz Great park lands, quiet streets, good bike tracks (some however need TLC or be upgraded), great place for families and retires. Not so much for shopping, night life or going out.
Perfectly positioned 30 minutes to the CBD, eastern, western and southern suburbs.
Mobile reception is terrible.
