"An affluent suburb close to everything."

I recently moved to Ormond (from Caulfield) and I have to admit it's great suburb. Close to north, centre, south rd with many cafes, shops, supermarkets in close proximity. Great schools for both primary and secondary along with superb public transport. Can get to the city in 25 mins on the train as well as to Chadstone shopping centre 10 minutes. Would recommend.

"Accessible and safe"

It's not a cheap place to live but considering its safe, family-friendly, abundant in heritage and 12km from the CBD, I think Ormond is good value for money. Neighbouring Glen Huntly, for example, doesn't tick all those boxes, yet is more expensive.

We moved to the area 6 months ago when we purchased our first family home, and so far we're really happy here.
Pros
  • McKinnon school zone
  • 5km from Brighton beach
  • Lovely heritage homes
Cons
  • North Rd shopping strip is really outdated
  • No express trains stop at Ormond station
  • No walking tracks apart from a small park
