"A package all in one! Most amazing place to live in!"

Manor lakes is an amazing suburb, when we were looking to build our home we scanned many suburbs in Melbourne and manor lakes stood out the most. It's a very special place to live if you're a nature lover, everything is within the suburb, it's located within close proximity to a train station, a shopping centre with wide retail options, schools and a childcare centre. The lake view is the best so far in any western suburb, and it's what got our attention when we first came to the area. The best thing about the suburb as well that we found in comparison to other western suburbs is how well planned and developed it is by the developers. This is in terms of the infrastructure of the roads and pedestrians pathways, so you can have plenty of walks without safety concerns. The minute you step out of your home you'll find that there are wide pathways for you to walk on for long hours, so the whole suburb is well structured and planned by the developers with safety in mind. Walking around the suburb and enjoying the lakeview never gets boring, as you walk there's an abundance of activities and gym equipments all around the lake so you can pause, take a deep breath and exercise whilst enjoying the stunning views of nature and the lakeside. If you're a family with kids, your children will enjoy that more as they walk around happily, ride their bikes safely or run on the pathway. We're also happy with the public school (Manor Lakes p-12 college), it's quiet sufficient for our children and the teachers there are amazingly supportive!

"Beautiful & Peaceful"

Pros: I bought a land to live in Lakeside in 2018 and I am impressed with it so far because of it being close to all amenities including Train station that’s 1.7 km’s away and most importantly the lake views that were almost impossible to find in any other new estate across Melbourne. I was initially going to purchase in point cook but couple of my friends living in Manor Lakes convinced me to purchase nearby due to the lakeside views and large blocks of lands.

Most other suburbs either have smaller lots or are too far from station or without direct access/views of green lands/wetlands. I found all this packaged together in one.

Cons: However it’s a 15 mins + drive from Princess freeway to get into Manor Lake which is not that bad but you have to pass through Werribee town centre as there is no direct access to suburb through freeway. This will hopefully change in 2021 when a flyover is connected to freeway to give residents direct access.

Overall it’s still a great suburb comparatively.

"Peaceful living in Melbourne's west!!"

Only 40 minutes from Melbourne CBD, close to shopping centres, schools, community centres, recreational facilities and a train station with public transport services, Manor Lakes has grown to become one of Melbourne's most family-friendly livable suburbs. With generous sized homes, great for the growing families, a residential population of around 9,000, a lake, wetlands and over 3kms of walking and bike paths, with more to come!

"Definitely a booming suburb in the West"

We're lucky to buy a home and land package in early 2016 at a good low(er) price. Since we bought this, I heard the land has appreciated by 100K! We just moved here in mid-2017 and love the lakes and the greenery (but missing the beach!). We work in CBD and the Wyndham Vale Vline is simply GOLD -- in 35 minutes, you're in Southern Cross station, hassle-free. Depending on the time, the train's parking bays fill up fast, but hopefully, the council and PTV have extended the space by the time it becomes a headache. However, expect some waiting time for the bus to arrive, plus a bit of a walk to/from the nearest bus stop. Then again, the council has interviewed me 6 months ago regarding a potential re-planning of the bus routes. But until then, expect to tone your calves. There aren't a lot of shops in the area except for Manor Lakes Shopping Centre with only Coles, McDonald's and a few restos in it. While waiting for its planned renovation, you can always drive down to Pacific Werribee. Lucky to have my kid go to Our Lady of the Southern Cross PS (great school!), but my older kids go to Werribee Secondary College, a good 1 hour commute by public transport (2 buses to school) or a 25 minutes drive. Can't complain though - still blessed! I like our neighbors since we're all technically new in the estate and willing to lend a helping hand.

vipulb2 @lizajolina : Can you share your views about the estate Lollipop Hill ? I have bought a piece of land there and want to know how the suburbs fares in terms of education, recreation, entertainment etc. We are 2.5 kms from the Wyndham Vale Station. Any response would be be appreciated.
