"Springvale South is a well facilitated Suburb"

Springvale South, a suburb below Springvale, beside Clayton South, above Dingley Village and Keysborough. It is a quiet suburb that is surrounded with convenience of established facilities nearby. It is 22 Km away from CBD and well served with choices of going for major connecting highways such as Dingley Bypass, Monash Freeway and Nepean Hwy. It is also a 15 mins drive down to the coast at Chelsea via Springvale Rd. Springvale Rd also runs all the way up to Glen Waverly and ends at Doncaster. The nearest train Stations are Westall or Springvale Stations. If you choose to take a train to CBD, it is just 21 mins journey from Springvale Station.
There are also neighbourhood parks and dominated by Buddhist community. It is not like the busy Chinatown in Springvale suburb and yet a stroll or short drive away from it. It is also not plague with landfills like the nearby surrounding suburbs. Some people may feel intimidated by the larger Asian population (making up of Vietnamese, Chinese and other southeast Asian populations) but this is because it is near to the biggest Chinatown in Eastern Suburb. The residents here are spoilt with varieties of food, eateries, takeaways, Yum Cha restaurants at very affordable prices. The fresh produces are cheap compared to other suburbs and some are half the prices of major supermarket.
The nearby shopping malls are Ikea, and the up coming M-City are just 10mins away.
It used to be a suburb established by new working class migrants and refugees but that Generation has already grown into local Australian professional families. The government schools are pretty average but there are a couple of good private schools around the area. This suburb is NBN ready, the streets width are generous in size.The prices of properties here are picking up growth speed as there is only about 3000 odd homes and not many are in the market. If you love Asian food, love multi-cultural diversity, want to enjoy the affordable food and necessities, you would want to move here. Remember, prices will all go up and up in location that are well served in the future. It is already growing at 11%pa in prices and it will be a million dollar suburb in a few years.

"if you're asian.. it's home.. if you're not... you're an alien."

I'm not Asian and I just want to get out of here.
This place has become little Vietnam quickly.
The temples that have gone up so quick prove that the government is either being bribed or they have done a deal with Asian investors to truly cement this place as Little Vietnam.
The residents know this too and if you aren't one of them they are arrogant and rude.
Dine in at any shop and guaranteed it's an Asian that runs it.
Their hospitality towards foreigners is very poor.
Come to think of it.. even towards themselves there isn't much of a "greet you with a smile"
The lane ways always smell as these Asian grocers are used to living the way they live back home... just throw all trash out the back. The standards of some shops are disgusting.
But as I said.. this is how they live back in Vietnam.. so no one except outsiders sees it as an issue.
Rats...... they've smart down here.... I saw one hot wiring a food truck the other day.... truck has not been seen since.
Pros
  • Asian food is good
Cons
  • Asian serive isn't

"Small quiet suburb a stone throw away from everything"

Springvale south sits in a quiet pocket between Springvale, Keysborough and Noble Park. With plenty of shopping facilities, schools and other amenities close by, it makes this suburb a great place to live. Being close to the monash freeway, It takes on average 35 minutes to get to the CBD or 21 minutes by express train. Great place to both live or Invest as rental yield is high and Capital growth is above average.
