"Ok but too small"

I have lived here for 6 years and to be honest it is ok, just I always seem to be travelling to bendigo, echuca or sheppsrton to get things that arent readily available here. It is very limited.

"Close to Everything"

One of the best streets in Rochester.

Close to State Primary and Secondary Schools, Local churches, bowls club, corner store, playground and only a short walk to main shopping area and train station.

Boast big wide streets, with good footpaths and most homes on large blocks so you are not close to the neighbors.

Find everything you need within several street blocks, post office, pubs train station, parks, pubs x 3, churches x 4, schools x 3 supermarket, Professional services of Solicitor, accountant and many specialty stores - such as jeweler, shoe, clothing, sports, electrical, videos, local department store etc.
