"Central, friendly and multicultural"

Nunawading has many different areas to it, from beautiful tree lined streets with plenty of families, to streets lined with units near the station, plus lots of new apartments popping up close to main roads/public transport.

As a Property Management specialist in Nunawading the rental return is good and vacancies are quite low , especially for units within walking distance to the train station.

The train station has been recently upgraded, but parking is still lacking. Bus links also head all over and you're only minutes drive to the Eastern Freeway or Eastlink.

Overall a lovely area with good transports, shops and a great multi cultured environment.

"Nunawading is awesome"

Nunawading is a really convenient area suited to many lifestyles, you can shop down springfield road with an endless line of shops, ranging from Bunnings Warehouse to Officeworks, the list is almost endless. the public transport around the area is great, i can take 5 different buses that will take me a 2 minute walk away from home. Overall it is pretty safe and you can live peacefully in nunawading !

"Nunawading is set to grow!"

A 15 minute drive along the freeway takes you to the city. Close to Doncaster, Blackburn, Box hill. The area is changing rapidly. Houses being renovated. New homes replacing old homes. A fantastic new primary school being built in Springfield Road - it will have world class facillities!

New train station is wonderful. Trainline goes under Sprinvale Road now so the traffic flow is much improved.

A new Aldi store is going to built in Nunwading. There is a DFO. Freedom furniture, Bunnings, and list just goes on. Shopping is great. And there are many places to provide all that is needed for renovations.

Cheaper to buy or rent in this area that Blackburn but just as good and only one train stop away!
