"Family favourite"

Rowville is a lovely area with big blocks and easy access to amenities.

While there is no train station (closest would be FTG or Noble Park), but there are plenty of bus links and lots of great walking/bike tracks to get places!

Rowville plaza boasts many good shops and major brands, but your closest major shopping centre would be Knox or Mulgrave.

I've rent quite a few homes here and find they are popular with young families due to safety factor and local schools.

"Family Oriented Town - Expensive Prices but worth the money"

Settled in Rowville in 1990's and have moved to another house in Rowville in 2006. The suburb and community is beautiful. And my god have the resale value's shooter with foreign buyers, the neighbour's place that was bought for 650,000 recently sold for 1,250,000... almost double. Only thing I regret and dearly wish was fixed about rowville asap is its public transport, we have 0-none when it comes to quick transport.

"Easy to Get Where You Want To Go"

Rowville is such an amazing up and coming suburb. It close to the Eastlink and the Monash making it very easy to go anywhere in Melbourne.

It is very family orientated and has some beautiful streets in some of the newer estates.

It has a whole range of housing options from the traditional estates right through to modern, large homes with land.

Even though it is only a short 30 minute drive into the city, you are able to find homes on big blocks so the kids can have plenty of room for cricket and football!

Some areas of Rowville are very close to masses of land so if you are keen to feel as though you are living in the wide open spaces, you may want to look into this area.

Stud Park shopping centre is being upgraded as well and new shops and a restaurant are soon to open at 1091 Stud Rd.

"Quiet neighbourhood"

Quiet neighbourhood. No good secondary schools, a bit of racism encountered on the first day i moved in. Some white kid threw an egg on my carport. Also spoke to neighbours who are not white and they share the same views..racism is alive in rowville!

Convenience, accessibility, central, friendly, clean, family oriented, facilities, great schooling, shopping, community focus, sporting and above all its location which is bordering both eastern & south eastern fringes of Victoria - Both the best. No wonder the house prices in Rowville are sky rocketing. Its truely an amazing suburb !

"Pretty Bad Investment"

I bought an investment property in Rowville about 12 months ago. Plople were telling me that I should have invested in other suburbs. I got the house valued and it came back $10k less that what i paid for it 12 months ago.

Bordeaux43 Little Jane,
Asute investors dont make mistakes in property investment. If you were aware of the economic climate at the time, you would have realised that you bought during a peak in the market. Did you perhaps consider that you may have overpaid at the time? Did you do your due diligence on market conditions or look at any statistics? My partner and I built a 4 bed house in Rowville 8 years ago and bought an investment property in Rowville in 2004 and succesfully sold both two years ago for double our cost. Its about timing the market and time in the market. Further, the investor who bought our investment property in Gearon Avenue has made a healthy $100K in 2 years. Let's not be greedy. Good things come to those who see a cycle through. Hope this advice helps.

Greenerpastures Bordeaux43,
Astute investors do make mistakes,where there is a good buy,there is a bad buy.You and your partner bought in rowville at the right time,good for you but don't go telling Little Jane 'Let's not be greedy'.Oh,you can afford to say that as you sold both your properties for double you paid.Rowville is a nice place to live but i certainly wouldn't be paying more there to buy to which buyers/investors are doing at the moment.I dislike the market at the moment and the rich get richer and the battlers and or people trying to get into the market or trying to invest get screwed.

overitrowville
overitrowville I agree with Greenerpastures - find me an astute investor whose hasn't made a mistake and I'll show you a liar! You made a profit in Rowville at a time when there was no suburb in Victoria that lost money in property! One thing I can guarantee is that if you hold on for at least 5-10 years, you are guaranteed to make a profit almost anywhere in Australia!

"Safe and clean, best for families"

I have been living in Rowville for almost 8 years, found it's a best place to live. Great schools, great neighborhood, very easy access to anywhere, two major freeways nearby, great transport, no powerline accross the street, they are built underground. I bought investment house in Rowville 4 years ago, the rent return is great, it's good to invest in rowville, because it's not like some other places with too many units building, the new state government is going to build a Rowville railway station, and the knox council is going to develop the major shopping centre 'Stud Park' into an activity centre with shops and restaurants and multiple apartments and car park buildings, plus stud park will be a major transport centre for going anywhere around the melbourne. It's about 5 mins drive to knox city shopping centre, 8 mins drive to glen waverley, 8 mins to dandenong market, within 15 mins to chadstone shopping centre, within 30 mins to city. We love here, and recommend to everyone.

"Quintessential Eastern suburb"

Situated 26km south-east (approximately 30 minutes drive) from Melbourne's CBD, Rowville is part of the Knox municipality and is well located in respect to both the Monash Freeway and East Link for easy commute. At the 2006 census Rowville had a population of over 34,000. Geographically, Rowville is one of the largest suburbs south-east of Melbourne.
This family orientated suburb boasts excellent schools, parks, community facilities, sporting clubs & an award winning playground. The Rowville Lakes offer year round pleasure whether it be taking a stroll, letting the children play on the playground or having a spot of fishing.

"Rowville - The Place to be !"

I have been renting in Rowville for the past four years and so far it has been the best suburb I have ever lived in. I have rented in numerous suburbs around Melbourne for the Past 20 years and if I intend to buy my own house, I will definitely go for Rowville...WHY? ...Because it has everything a good suburb can offer e.g. safe and clean environment with green picturesque views, convenience of all major arterials (Monash & Eastlink, 20 mins to CBD & 10 minutes drive to major shopping Centers i.e. Chadstone, Knoxfield, Waverly Gardens, Fountain gate, Monash university, great private & public school zones around the suburb in Glen Waverley, Mount Waverley & Wheelers Hill.
Rowville is a very family oriented suburb with many sporting facilities, local community centre, local shopping mall, library, medical centre and if you admire golf - 3 golf courses in one suburb and the list goes on. I will grade Rowville 10/10 for families, couples and retirees. Down side is there is not train or Tram access but then Gen Waverley Train station is again a 10 min drive with everything at your finger tips.
In a nutshell Rowville has a wonderful suburbia feel to it with convenience and accessibility of an urban lifestyle hence you can't go wrong to make this your residential paradise ...YOU WILL LOVE EVERY BIT OF ROWVILLE!

""Young professionals with a young family, alight here!""

We moved to Rowville after having lived in Greenborough, Brunswick East and Southbank. We were drawn to Rowville in the late 1990's due to plans to start a family. We wanted a suburb which was less than 30klm to the CBD, close to Monash freeway, Monash University, within 30 minutes of the beach, within 20 minutes of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, close to private schools (Caulfield Grammar, Knox School, Tintern)...and we wanted a new house! We've been here for 12 years now and recently moved to our second house - we stayed in Rowville! This time we've moved to the oldest part of Rowville, but undoubtedly the most serene, tranquil and picturesque part - The Lakes Estate. With a playround and Lake Sutton across the road, our children and ourselves think it largely a hidden oasis in suburbia. Early in the morning, aged people walk their dogs, young people take to a jog, children walk to school and mums push their prams about to set up for a picnic in the park. People fish and share stories about how the big one got away. Have I sold it to you yet? (Read: Herald Sun April 17th 2010. Which suburb rated in the top 18 for the whole of Victoria for growth in prices? Rowville.... also a sound investment financially!)

"Silkwood, rowville"

Lovely tree lined streets, young vibrant community with great sporting ammenities and clubs, from Golf, Football, cricket and tennis. A progressive area, much has been done to enhance parks and playgrounds for the kids, the local schools rate very well relative to the state averages. We are a married couple with 2 primary school age children and would recommend the suburb to anyone in same stage of life as us
