"Small town with potential"

Moe is the place most people call the poor cousin of towns, however it is certainly under appreciated.

Moe has a lot to offer people from all walks of life it just has to be weighed up carefully, the main street during the day is always bustling with people, the streets are well kept and the community has a friendly country town spirit.

Some of the features are
Close to the Freeway,
1.5 hours from Melbourne CBD
Nice local shops
Kmart
Very Reasonable house prices medium house price being $210,000 with medium rent price of $260 per week for a house and the average return on investment being about 6.4%
Excellent sporting facility's good choice of schools
Lovely parks, play grounds and walking tracks.

Cons
Slightly elevated Crime Rate
Listed as one of the most disadvantaged towns in Victoria
Not a lot of work opportunities
Not a lot for teenagers to do
Elevated Crime rate

"Awesome town, Very friendly people, Hidden Gem, Bargain Buying :) couldn't ask for a better lifestyle"

Love this Town, such nice people and always friendly, Moe has Beautiful sight seeing and a great country feel, the Town has everything you need and close to everything, has it's own lake for water sports, speed boat racing, fishing, snow , heaps of camping sites, motorbike riding, horse riding, and more and less than a hour too the beach and a train ride to Melbourne, and Can't believe how cheap the House prices still are for such a great Town and the , Such a relaxed place without the hustle of the city, great for anyone wanting a fantastic lifestyle change.

cujo Yes people say a lot of things and I've heard Similar also before I moved here and realised a lot of the people saying these rumours don't even live here and never visited here either or if they did it's a personnel reason that's enough to shame a whole town based on there one opinion, I have lived in Melbourne my whole life and see a lot more of those things there than here for sure, but sometimes you have too be the judge of your own decisions as often other peoples opinions are based on another persons facts and usually are wrong or misinterpreted , remember everywhere you go there will be drugs, crime etc
unless you live on a deserted island you won't eliminate this issue, but then I find the people that associate with drugs, crime etc tend to attract that no matter where they move as it follows them, but don't associate with it and you'll most likely wont even know its there.
People here are Really down too earth, friendly and make the time too say hello, my kids love it and my wife, I wish I had of moved here way before but I'm glad I made my own judgment as If had listened too other people i still would be in Melbourne :(

"Country Town Feel with access to everywhere."

We live in a wonderfully convenient location with access to some of Victorias finest attributes at our doorstep (so to speak)......90 mins drive to Melbourne, Snow fields & High Country, Gippsland lakes to the east and the beach areas to the south. Very affordable housing is seeing an influx of "out of town" people relocating and settling here and services all within a reasonable commute if not in town. People are amazed at how good this place really is....... walk down the street and people actually say g'day to you!!
Public transport services are regular suiting those that don't drive or prefer to ride the train for longer journeys.
We live here by choice not by necessity and enjoy driving "home" from anywhere around Australia after a holiday or business trip.

"Great little community"

Only an hour to everywhere, not the hustle and bustle of the bigger towns in the area and beautiful old homes that are very affordable. Good freeway access and trains and no peak hour traffic to speak of.

"A great place to invest or live"

Moe is very well located within a area that has plenty of work.
Only 1.5 hours from the heart of Melbourne by train or freeway.
Moe has great acess to snow, mountains, beach, national parks, fishing, all within a easy drive
4 golf courses to choose from two 18 hole courses in Moe and two others 10 minutes either side.
Property is cheap ...damn cheap .. no where else will you find property this well priced in such a major town and area with so many facilities and employment nearby.
Moe south is probably one of the prettiest areas to live east of Melbourne.
All Moe needs now is people with vision to help it out of its rut

"A Place for Everyone!!"

A wonderful supportive community, situated 1.5 hours to Melbourne and only about an hour to the snow or the beach and 2 hours from the Gippsland Lakes. Beautifully scenic with views to Mount Erica. Perfect for retirees or young families, as the real estate is very affordable and sporting groups are plentiful for both young and old. I love Moe!!!
