"Country style living"

This area is appealing to residents who like the open spaces and views of the Mount Dandenongs. If you enjoy venturing out to the Yarra Valley, you are only a 15 minute drive to fantastic wineries and cafes. There are not many fashion shopping options although the newly developed Eastland Shopping Centre in Ringwood is only 20 minutes away. There are not many is great for retirees and families.
Pros
  • Space
  • Large proprties and land
  • Country style living

"Lilydale Stinks"

Lilydale is suitable for industry & business but not residential. With the pungent smell of the sewage treatment plant and foul odours of diesel & dust produced by Supersoil, Lilydale stinks. With the Shire of Yarra Ranges protecting illegally placed businesses like Supersoil, this confirms that it is a good area for industry and not residential. Lilydale is a great area for purchasing property and renting it out as rental demand is very high.

Good area to get your foot in the door in the property market but not for long term living.
Pros
  • Cheap.
  • Has Its Own Dole Office For The Bludgers.
  • Great Rental Area.
Cons
  • Suitable For Buisiness & Industry.
  • Rough Neighbourhood.
  • Stinks & Noisy.

MaritaGaltSmithM I have lived in Lilydale now for almost 4 years and have NEVER smelt sewage or any foul odours that you have referred to?? When I saw this comment I was totally bewildered by it. I am someone who is also very sensitive to smells and odours so if this was an issue in Lilydale there is NO WAY I would have purchased a house here!

"A great place for kids, pets and recreational interests."

Lilydale is situated only 45 minutes from Melbourne's CBD via Eastlink or rail. So all the great sporting events, eateries, and shopping in Melbourne are never far away. Lilydale is also the gateway to the Yarra Valley where some of the best wineries and fresh fruits are easily accessible. Lilydale is also home to the Lillydale Lake, one of the most popular recreational parks in Victoria! Whether you enjoy taking the kids to the playground, fishing, walking or just getting fit, the Lillydale Lake provides all the facilities one needs. For cyclists and explorers, there's also the Lilydale to Warburton trail. Best of all is the feeling of space you have in Lilydale. Wide roads, plenty of parking, parks and large home allotments allows us all to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the outer east.

"A great place to raise children"

Always lived around this area (other suburbs) but moved into our currrent house 8 years ago and have started to raise our family. we are close to the Warby Trail and Lilydale lake. Its a lovely area and we love the trees and hills, lots of places to walk and play, close to transport, good places to shop and also close to the larger shopping complexes.
