"Arnolds Creek Estate is best area in Melton West"

I recently moved to Arnolds creek estate, melton west which is newly developed estate in Melton West which has most of facilities available as per family requirements like new primary school, new shops, new park lands, Kinder Garten and childcare facilities. This area is beautiful, quiet and still reasonable property price and safe.
Pros
  • Newly built area
  • schools
  • shops
  • transport
  • Parks
Cons
  • near melton south
  • Too far from the city

"Good straight run to the city via the freeway but so so far away and dry and flat and featureless with no views"

There is a real cost in time and money to have to live so far from the city. However there should be some benefit in terms of really nice and fresh air, larger block sizes and far cheaper land. Also it should be pleasant to the eye with hills and trees. Otherwise why bother. Melton West is just not nice enough to make it worth living so far from the city.
Cons
  • near melton south
  • High Crime
  • High Vandalism
  • Too far from the city

"A flat featureless outer outer suburb. Feels unsafe."

I never like suburbs where you see so many houses with cars in their front yards that should be in a wrecking yard. Another bad sign are bars on windows and unkempt nature strips. I'm sure the majority of people here are nice but the place has an unpleasant vibe.

I used to take my kids to Melton for basketball matches and the number of rude drivers is more than anywhere else in Melbourne.
Cons
  • Too far from the city
  • High Crime
  • High Vandalism
  • near melton south

LivB83
LivB83 Any recommendations regarding schools? Rent prices and homes are leading us up that way (with 4 boys cost of everything is ridiculous!) However With the way Melton has had it's name tarnished over several years I get scared placing 3 boys (prep, G4 & Yr7) in unknown territory thinking they'll turn into rat bag gangster wannabes lol when it comes to school!! Please help!

"Very far to the city.."

Its 43km from the city!!! Tarneit, Truganina, williams landing is much much closer...
Unless you have a Toyota prius, you will be paying for petrol through your nose to commute to city and back home. I would not want to rent in this suburb.
essendon43
essendon43 Use public transport? Driving to the city takes 40 minutes, for $300,000 that is nothing. Tarneit, Tragunania and williams landing, are all over developed, under established and un serviced for $200,000 more.

"Quality of Life"

It's hard to imagine how a quility of life can go so unnoticed by the rest of Melbourne. For comfort,quality of life and ease of living why would you not look at Brookfield. A world on it's own
