"Noisy as Melbourne Airport"

I agisted my horse there for awhile in 2000. It does have peaceful moments... However just when you are starting to relax, your peace will and can be interrupted by the noise of planes landing and taking off from nearby Melbourne Airport... When I was there there, the local winery would daily fire gunshots to scare off starlings/birds when their vines had ripe grapes... I had to move my horse as it especially freaked him out and he tried to jump out of his stable (This happened to a friend's horse on same property and it injured itself). I could not imagine living there with the planes much less shooting hillbillies nearby.
Lazybones ^ What a load of rubbish. I've been in Oaklands Junction for 7 years and barely notice any aircraft noise, certainly no more than the surrounding suburbs like Greenvale or Sunbury. If there is any noise it's that of farm animals list roosters and cows, what you will not miss is bogans racing commodores outside your door. This is an area of outstanding beauty and little light pollution. The sky at night here is breath taking, the view of the Macedon ranges is breath taking, and as a bonus there's a very low crime rate meaning cheaper home & car insurance, and I feel like my kids can run around outside without the fear of strangers.
LMc Hmmm I'm entitled to my opinion. In this instance I think 'Lazybones' is way off the mark. Currently visit Greenvale area very often. Have visited and spent ALOT of time in Oaklands Junction area for MANY years and have noticed hat its is MUCH NOISIER than Greenvale! I think b/c you have a vested interest in the area, your judgement (and hearing) is slightly marred! Come on - Be honest! The airport DOES use your area as a FLIGHT PATH, so of course you can hear them flying direct overhead in St Johns road and Oakland Junction!! If it wasn't so noisy we would have bought a property there by now! (Though we really like the location and land - we looked at a few properties, but didn't like the noise). Let's face it; Rural Views don't cut it for most people when there is not peace and quiet you would expect from living semi-rural.
