"Used to be decent - now a cesspool of gangs & crime!"

Do not be fooled by the glowing reviews, its outdated. The past two years this place has gone downhill fast. The reason? Arabs and African gangs have moved in and they regularly make their presence felt. Park your car out the front? Get the windows smashed. That's if you're lucky. They often steal it and go for joy rides. How about a night out? Well, you have to deal with the feral locals bashing each other & anyone nearby in great hordes.

The police? They don't do anything for fear of being labeled "racist", it's a tragic state of how our society has fallen victim to political correctness.

Let this be a warning for anyone looking to buy or build here, do not do it. Your family deserves better, they deserve to be safe.

"Beautiful place to raise a family"

We love Tarneit, have lived here for 6 years now. People are friendly, so many shops, restaurants, great schools to choose from, 26 minute train trip to city, close to the coast, great walking tracks and parks and so much more. Our street is so quiet and we have lovely neighbors, very family friendly. The houses are getting much smaller now and very expensive which is a shame. We are lucky we got in early.
Pros
  • New house
  • 30 minutes from city
  • Plenty of Schools
  • Parksand Recreations and child care centers
  • Railway Station under construction
Cons
  • At the moment nead to take a Bus to the nearest Railway station
  • house and land size

"Moving to tarniet"

Moving to tarniet from Sydney next year

To a new estate named habitats

4 bedroom land & house package by Hamilton / Snowden group

Close to tarniet station

Any idea guys about valuation & is it flood torn area??

Family of 4 including 2 young kids



Need suggestions

Plz help
Yeah1
Yeah1 It really depends on the estate you move and your nationality , some estates are generally ethnically diverse such as Ecovile and Moorokyle which consists of the crime completely increasing over the years , the problem is the youth. Id recommended Rose Grange Trugguanina area of Tarneit which is the most safest and it quite .

vivn1 Hi QK
My sister bought a house and land package in Habitat last year and she will move there this November. We love this area which is surrounded by many shoppping centres, child care, school, medical center, tarneit station and other 2 proposed station.
U dont need to worry about flood torn since council there spend a lot of fund for upgrade construction.
The point is it's just 21km away from CBD, u can buy a 4 bedroom house and land package under $450,000. How amazing right?
Habitat estate's extremely beautiful with natural creek and a lot of green space. Ur kids would defintely love it :)

"KatesP"

I have lived in Tarneit for 7 years at start it was great was peaceful and quiet, weren't many youths roaming around, However ever since 2014 it has completely gone downhill with estates becoming multicultural zones . Estates like The Heartlands, , Moorookyle, Tarneit Gardens and Ecoville etc is fluid, spanning ethnic communities and disparate neighbourhoods. Although these ethnically diverse neighbourhoods it has become a ground zone for crime and conflict.
Pros
  • Ethnically DIverse
  • Plenty of Community Centres For Youth
  • 30 minutes from city
  • Plenty of Schools
Cons
  • Some estates racial enclaves
  • crime rate

"Tab with, my hometown for many years"

I have lived in Tarneit for 12 years.
Prior to that I had lived in Hoppers Crossing (3 years ) and prior to that in Richmond (10 years).

Tarneit and its surrounding areas are growing at a rapid pace . New Estates with the the latest modern homes being built .
I have lost count how many schools in the area but there are many - private and public and religious.

Childcare facilities - there are plenty of them .

Within a 5 klm radius there are 3-4 train stations , 2 Police stations , Council Swim Centre, 5 MacDonalds , 3 Hungry Jacks , 3 KFC , 15+ Petrol stations , 50+ Bulk Billing Doctor clinics that open till 11pm , a hospital and a Central Plaza that is huge and growing with each expansion.
In addition to that , the area has nearly every top 200 Retail franchise outlets . Think of a retailer , it is within 5klm from Tarneit . The area has a huge car sales area with all the common car makes .
The suburb is an area which has the best facilities - there is no other suburb like it . I don't mind being a few klm from the facilities as this gives the area less traffic in my local estate.
Now I am an immigrant , and I believe in Multiculturalism, Tarneit would have people from all over the world . And like all high growth mini cities - there will be issues .
Remember it's the effort we all make that makes our suburb a better place to live .
I do not appreciate people talking about classes and race , we are all the same in God's eyes .

"Tarneit - really is the luck of the draw, try before you buy!"

We moved from Tarneit last week after five years of living on Reflections. Initially it was not too bad but then some owner occupiers moved out and bogan renters moved in and it became a different story. The community spirit was soon gone and replaced with open drug dealing (police don't care) mini motorbikes, remote controlled cars amongst some of the regular nuisances endured. It is a LOW socioeconomic area, which will attract people looking for a cheap rental with little in the way of common respect for other people. Wyndham council admitted to me they are short staffed and cannot stop the idiots who insist on parking across nature strips, not looking after nature strips and making the neighbourhoods look quite third world. On the two occasions I called the police to report domestic violence (get used to it if you move to Tarneit, there is a lot of it) I was almost laughed at, despite this being a topic very prominent in the media. I have friends on Rose Grange who absolutely hate it there, same thing renters, unfortunately as long as their neighbour insists on hanging washing on the weeds in the front garden they know it's useless to try and sell. Try and get on the Vline after 7am, it's a joke. Try and get to the CBD in peak hour, hardly 30 minutes!!! Do yourself a favour and avoid this area like the plague. However if you have a thick skin, don't care about the effects on your family and don't mind all the above then go for it. A future slum in the making, it will be the Broadmeadows of the west before long. Getting out of there has been an extreme relief.
Pros
  • Parksand Recreations and child care centers
Cons
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Open drug problem
  • Lack of community spirit
  • hoons

DarrenP The train station may look very nice, but you will not get on a train after 07.30, and with 148 people moving into the area each week this will only get worse.

"Amazing suburb :)"

I've lived in many suburbs of Melbourne including Clayton, Richmond and Footscray. I recently moved to Tarneit three months ago and it is by far the best suburb I have lived in. The community is very kind and welcoming. Access to public transport, schools and shopping centres is very good (although sometimes buses can come quite late), but overall it is a lovely suburb and I'd recommend to all people considering moving here.

CarlyR Hi, we are also looking to move to Tarneit.. I'm due for a baby soon and we aren't sure which parts of Tarneit are the safest and quietest? We were looking at Moorookyle area but then were told that it's "rough" and not recommended.
So now we're confused! Please let me know which areas in Tarneit are the best :) thanks!
Jun 06, 2015
EvangeliaK
EvangeliaK Seasons Estate is probably the best estate in Tarneit due to the larger blocks, and mainly owner occupiers living there. I would also consider the new estate around the train station. Once the tarneit town centre is completed, it will be great. Good luck with your new baby.

StuartP Westbrook or Emerald Park estates in Tarneit will be the best in a few years time due to being right next to new train station, new town centre, and new schools.

Suburb with a lot of potential. Buy while it's still affordable! Duplicatn of leakes rd means traffic will improve. Tarneit station is opening very soon.

"Nice place"

Moved over here from the inner north of Melbourne and feel that tarneit is a lot cleaner and less congested than inner city living. We have an 800sq block which is great but don't agree with council allowing developers to produce tiny housing blocks - 300 to 400sq, this is happening in the outer suburbs all around Melbourne and will take from ideal of moving to the outer suburbs for space and will create congestion and possible slum

"Once was a great suburb to live..."

I have lived in Tarneit for four years now, when my family first moved in it was a fantastic area. Quiet, clean, safe and friendly. the last two years the area's quality has gradually gotten worse. Graffiti, vandals, rubbish, bus stops constantly damaged. Hoons. The kids that I have seen that attend the local schools are absolutly feral, this is why I drive my son an hour every day to another suburb for school. I can't wait to leave Tarneit to a more expensive suburb where the crazy ferals that are moving in to Tarneit can not follow. Loved Tarneit at the start but this suburb is going down hill fast.
Cons
  • hoons
  • crime rate
shane1
shane1 What a terrible comment to say about the children of the area! Maybe if you could afford the expensive schools in tarneit you wouldn't need to drive an hour, there are many good schools in the area - public and private. What planet are you on?

"Love Tarneit"

Have been living here with my family 11 years now. Gosh how it has grown. Great shops, walking tracks, medical centres, schools, universities nearby, beaches nearby, just name it, Tarneit has it all. When it comes to dining, there is again so much to choose from nearby Watton Street, Point Cook and a great night out in the city is just 25 mins away! All I can say is its a great suburb and a fantastic place to raise a family. Best place you can live in with so much more potential. Can't wait for the ferry service from Werribee to the City, that will be an awesome way to get to work!

"Lots of schools, no traffic on roads, shops close by with plenty of future building plans"

Lived in a few suburbs in my time, but Tarneit has been the best so far. Love being able to get onto the highway for work with 5 minutes, not having to stop for traffic lights every minute or get stuck at intersections. Plenty of private schools to chose from with many new public schools being opened also. Shops close by, with new mini-malls being built on every corner. Future Train station being built will increase propert values along with new roads and businesses.

20 minutes drive to the city.

"Fast-developing Tarneit"

I bought my house in Tarneit (Rose Grange Estate) in 2005 when this place was literally a huge flat barren paddock. I relied on the Melway for most of my research on the suburb and its prospect for growth. Thank God they have implemented almost all the plans they originally proposed!!! I lived in the Eastern suburbs before moving here. Through experience, I would consider Tarneit especially Rose Grange to be one of the best places for family with kids. Tarneit is very cosmopolitan and culturally diverse which makes it a great place to live in. My advice to any prospective home buyer is Do Not Miss Out on owning a house in Tarneit by simply listening to people giving negative feedback about this place... Do the research yourself and weigh the pros and cons and compare it with other suburbs. God Bless!!
Pros
  • Baden Powell College is as good as any private school (my perspective)
  • A proposed shopping centre at the corner of Leakes RD and Derrimut Rd
  • Tarneit will just get better over time
  • New house
  • 30 minutes from city
  • Parksand Recreations and child care centers
  • Plenty of Schools
  • Railway Station under construction
Cons
  • criminal activities in the nearby suburbs

"Wouldnt live anywhere else:-)"

I have lived in Tarneit for over two years and love it! The cons everyone talks about are the same in any suburb, exception of lack of infrastructure around public transport and roads, but Tarneit is getting there considering the influx of new residents we are playing catch up.
There are new clubs and shops being built now. So now is the time to buy as soon the prices will rise.

"Tarneit has NO redeeming features"

Moved back to Australia and thought I would build a house in Tarneit. Before doing so decided to rent and see what the suburb was all about. Great big new house....but no back yard to speak of. Lego Land...packed in tight where you can hear your neighbours all of the time. First week in - walk out the front door with my three year old to be confronted with several police cars. Stabbing across the street. Domestic Violence was the norm with our Neighbours to the back - makes for great entertainment christmas day with children and guests....NOT! House near "recreation centre" growing drugs! Which brings me to the recreation centre if you could call it that! People that own in the area did not seem to benefit as those who rented invited their friends in en masse. Horrified by behaviour of locals....racially motivated. Shocking place.
Cons
  • Lack of infrastructure
  • Very bad traffic and ease of access to city
  • hoons
  • house and land size
  • crime rate
  • neighbours
lucky3
lucky3 In 2006, the total population of Tarneit was estimated at 7,613 people. It is expected to experience an increase of over 36,100 people to 43,803 by 2021! The area is growing rapidly and of course just like any other area in melbourne or anywhere in the world, there will be domestic violence and drugs. It is definitely not the NORM and we hardly hear of stabbings or drugs!!! As described by most residents it is quiet and peaceful and family orientated, maybe not as peaceful as a country village in the UK................

Land sizes are small in every new estate that is coming up. If you want bigger land, pay the extra money to get it.

PeepooyR Same here. Moved back to Australia and found my old suburb of Yarraville quite pricey already. Rented a 2 year old house in Tarneit facing a farm that offered me beautiful sunsets. Lovely neighbour too who mowed my lawn for me. BUT no good restaurants nearby. House got broken into within weeks. And the traffic into the city was horrific! Packed up and left the day the lease expired. I hope never to go back!

"Tarneit is great place to live (except Moorokyle Estate)"

Tarneit is a good place to live if you have a family and you are after affordable place to live. There are bit of peak hour traffic problems, but that issue is no different to any other Melbourne suburb. Off peak time, it's a smooth 30 minute drive to city.

There are plenty of good schools around like Good News Lutheran School, The Grange P-12 College, St James the Apostle Primary School and Baden Powell College.

Tarneit overall has a family area feel to it, with nice parks and housing in every estate.

The only estate that is known to have some trouble is the Moorokyle Estate in Tarneit. You will find a very high percentage of houses in Moorokyle estate being put of for sale or rent as compared to other estates. Moorookyle Country Club is known to attract nonsense & regular fights among teens.

The nearby estates like Tarneit Gardens and The Rise estates are heaps better. I have recently moved from away from Moorokyle estate to The Rise estate which is also serviced by Bus route 442. Recent upgrades to Leakes road has eased traffic on Sayers Road and it is easy to commute to city by Leakes Road.

I reckon tarneit is the place to buy your own home. You will see a steady increase in the house prices. But I would not recommend investing because there is already more than required properties up for rent which is causing high vacancy rate and rental discounts.

ryaz11 Im in the moorokyle estate and find the street im in is ok. Depends if you like all your neighbours living in garages. A high population or maoris that live in there garage. they convert it into lounge rooms/kitchens. Witch does get to be annoying when your house is pretty much ontop of them. like most houses here.

We stay away from the country club as its full of weridos.
We cant wait untill we move out of here..

"Tarneit - Perfect!"

Have been in Tarneit for a year now. We absolutely love it. Can't find any flaws so far at all. We also came from the south eastern side of town. There are so many school options for children. It is a very large suburb but within 5 - 10 minutes there is the Westbourne Grammar, The Good News Lutheran school, Thomas Carr College, Baden Powell College, St James The Apostle, Bethany Primary School and Westgrove Primary School. I am only naming a few of which I know are really good schools but there are many more to choose from. Personally we would love to send the kids to Westbourne but it is extremely pricy. Our kids go to Westgrove and are very happy. Shops are everywhere but the Werribee Plaza and the Tarneit shopping centre would have to be the best choice. The Plaza is being extended so plans are that it will be twice the size soon. Tarneit will have 2 railway stations which are currently under construction. At the moment you can use the Hoppers Train station which is again between 5 - 10 minute drive depending on where you live or you can catch the bus. The roads are being improved and we expect further improvements in the next few years. Our neighboors are lovely, keep to themselves but are quite friendly, not that many rental properties near where we live, close to Hogans Road. We love going bike riding to the river with the kids and the local restaurants on Watton Street are great. There is again so much to choose from: Greek, Italian, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese (to name a few) and some great steak and pub meals at the aussie restaurants. The marina is also under construction and there will a ferry to the city, another exciting project. We are close to some of melbourne's best tourist spots, the great ocean road, the werribee mansion, the open range zoo, the river, the coast and the list goes on... I agree with most of the other reviews, overall its a great place to raise a family.

"Tarneit - Great Area - Highly recommended"

Tarneit is the "toorak" of the western suburbs. New estates, tree lined streets, beautiful homes. It has been cleverly designed for growing families. The area is new but don't let this fool you. Everything is rather closeby, within a 5 - 10 minute drive you will find good public schools and exclusive private schools, shopping centres and nearby restaurants/cafes in werribee and point cook. An easy 30 minute drive to the city, easily accessible to some of melbourne's most popular tourist attractions including the open range zoo, the great ocean road, point cook coastal park and so much more. Take a bike road to the werribee river, or to the beach, there is so much to do when you get out there. Only downside which is short term is public transport and some roads which are still being built, these will improve over time. Like most areas, you will get some bad with the good but generally speaking can't fault it. We have been here 2 years and we love it!

Abc_easy_as_123
Abc_easy_as_123 Are you serious you can not in any way shape or form compare TARNEIT to Toorak what a difference there is one is a few minutes to the city and tarneit will it's a good 20 - 30 minute drive. If you want to compare something to Toorak may be look at something in williamstown. You must have never been to Toorak before to be comparing it to tarneit. Nothing alike not to be rude but you need to wake up!!!!!!!! If your wanting an area like Toorak then go to williamstown.

lucky3 Abceasy as 123 - you really have nothing good to say about Tarneit so I recommend you move out of our area and let others share their opinion on this site. Everyone has the right to love the area they live in, you obviously don't agree and thats fine but let others have their opinion.

"Great place to live in the Older areas"

Tarneit is quite a large suburb, There's the city side which is closer to Morris Rd and then there is the back side beyond Tarneit Rd.
Currently from the east to the west side of Tarneit can be around 10 min by Car. The older parts of the suburb now have a bit more infrastructure, plenty of schools, places for take out dinners, food shopping etc. As for the newer parts I gather that is all still in development. My neighbours are nice and tend to help each other as there are less renters in the older parts of Tarneit. Overall I quite happy living here and its great to know that if we ever have kids Westbourne collage and Thomas Carr Collage would be my first options. A new police station was built a little over a year ago on the corner of Derimut and Sayers roads opposite the BP service station which is handy. A great place to live:) Also the Older parts generally have larger blocks as well which is nice.
Pros
  • New house

"Living in Moorookyle (owner occupied)"

I have been living in Moorookyle Estate for the past 2 years. And I have no problems and loving it. My kids love to play in the parks next to the Country Club. I have noticed the back estate, Heartlands have been developed, making it easy access to Leakes Rd via The Rise Estate. There is a proposed School behind Moorookyle Estate. I am looking forward to it. Like in any part of Melbourne there are always some bad stories..but you can't punish the whole estate based on a few bad experiences. I would recommend to anyone that want to buy the property in Tarneit to consider Moorookyle Estate, as the price is still affordable. Moorookyle is my home.

"A great place to raise a family"

We have been in Tarneit since it first started evolving, about 11 years now. During that time we have seen it progress to a lovely suburb, quiet, tidy with lovely new houses and family orientated people. Not suitable if you want to be close to pubs and clubs however there are many accessible restaurants nearby on Watton Street and Point Cook. The coast is easily accessible and so is the city. Great for families, good community and lovely neighbours, we have never had any problems. Good choice of schools and nearby shops. Real estate has doubled in value in the past 10 years and we will have two train stations and freeway even closer with new plans. If you are are after a good size block and a peaceful family life in a clean new suburb, this is the place to be!

Abc_easy_as_123
Abc_easy_as_123 Im just wondering if you are in a older style home in Tarneit?? Good size blocks? Im sorry are you kidding? 400m2 or 500m2 is good? It is tiny once you add the house then the back yard is next too nothing. You cant even fit a swimming pool in. If you want to you would want to have no back yard at all.
For new houses that are going for 400k to 500k which some are in Tarneit that are on 700m2. Not much room at all to move compaired to the older style homes.!
Also you say pros are child-care centres there is only like 2-3 child care centres and one of them is Sunkids which i would never recommend!
I think this area is good if you love to be woken up by your neighbours because you can hear everything they are saying in their own home or you can hear their loud bass music! The homes are lovely yes neighbours not so and also what these new homes are made out of is just crap! You shouldnt hear every little thing in a brand new home that is made out of Bricks.


* Please dont think im having a go at you but really the tarneit area has sadly gone a little down hill and is getting over ran by other people which dont make it all that family friend*

lucky3 Sad to hear that you feel that way about Tarneit. We are just going by our personal experience and we have never had any loud neighbours! Yes we built our home 11 years ago and our block and home is much larger than what is on offer today however if you compare the homes in tarneit with other new areas e.g caroline springs, point cook, etc you will find that the blocks in Tarneit are still bigger. In regards to the quality of the walls, I can't comment because we have not had that problem. As Tarneit is so close to hoppers and werribee there is an abundant choice of child care centres within a 5 minute drive and the same applies for schools but I guess if you need a child care centre within walking distance, then that would be hard to find. We have raised our children here and been lucky enough to have had a good run, I guess as the area gets bigger and the population expands we will need more child care centres. We live on a quiet court where all the kids go out to play cricket on the street when its sunny and the neighbours get together for a few glasses wine so can't complain. Life is good :)

"Cant wait for our house to sell"

We brought in Tarneit 6 months ago and have had nothing but problems. We have been broken in to twice and our car has been broken in to once.
The neighbours are always loud and are having parties every second day and it goes on for hours.
We have had their friends blocking our drive way and wont let us out. Police was called they told us nothing we can do.
We brought in Tarneit thinking it will be great to have a new home as we were expecting and didn't want to be renting while our child would be growing up.
But after all this i think i would much rather be renting then owning and living in this house.
You cant go away for the weekend or we come back to having our bins gone through or your house broken in too.

If you love to be claiming on insurence all the time and not having access to your drive way and living in a dog box with no back yard.
please feel free to come and join us at Tarneit. I can't wait until this house then someone else can have MY problems while i go back to renting!

"Living the dream"

We love tarneit, been here for a year now. Built our own home, not big but an average size. We have nice neighboors and we are really enjoying the community spirit and friendliness of people. The crime rate is really low if compared with other areas, we came from Richmond so definitely much lower here. Have not heard of anyone on our street who has been broken into, there are many new houses going up on un-occupied land so I guess when its really quiet and there are no neighboors, you will get some break ins. We are loving it, plan on going nowhere for the next 50 years! Great shopping and parks for kids, average people and some really wealthy ones, the area is getting really expensive

"Little critters"

1.Tarneit - Trugannina, there seems to be a mouse/mice/rodent problem around these areas.
2. Tarneit is a quiet and lovely recomendable place to buy-rent-share accomidation.
3. Easy access to public transport. except trugannina -
4. Locals are friendly
5. The grange seems to be the most non recomdable school due to the high population of negative feed back from the public in general.
6. theft will only happen to those who leave things around for easy access maybe istal cameras or higer fence would be smart.

Abc_easy_as_123 " 6. theft will only happen to those who leave things around for easy access maybe istal cameras or higer fence would be smart. "

Why should you have to install cameras or a higher fence?? Too feel safe and so your stuff doesn't get stolen? Putting that in a review is agreeing with other posters that yes it is a high crime rate area.. Also you say it only happens to people that leave stuff around. Hmm im pretty sure out of 99% of the break ins around tarneit are not cause by that. I don't see people having all their valuebles at their front windows with a sign saying take me. The reason why it is a high crime area is
1. The Estate are not always finished when people move in.
2. The Estates that offer security well i wouldn't even call it that because its non existent.
3. The target peoples homes because they know that the owners or renter would be out working full time because paying for the house.
4. 60% of the time its people that live in your street that break in because they have nothing better to do expect sit on the bottoms all day and don't work for a living and get their home given to them from soical services.

"Get me out of here"

Tarneit moorkyle estate would have to be far the worst estate EVER.
It's loud you can guarantee there will be a part every friday or saturday night.
Everyone lives in there garage even tho there is a redback infestation in the area.
Roads have potholes everywere. New houses are being built in 1-2months.
The list goes on. Im waiting for my lease to expire and then im out of here
Pros
  • New house
  • 30 minutes from city
SarahS
SarahS I would have to highly DISAGREE! I live in the Moorakyle Estate and it is very quiet in my area, neighbours are friendly and we have had no trouble with red backs, i have not spotted any pot holes and never seen a house completed in 1-2 months!

Abc_easy_as_123
Abc_easy_as_123 Will and Sarah S- I own in Moorokyle estate and i must say Yes their is Redbacks i had them in my investment properties. It may be quite where you live but i can tell you where my rental properties are it is loud. The crime rate in moorokyle is a lot higher then any other estate in Tarneit.
Also yes there is potholes due to the roads getting fixed up! You also say that you have seen a house completed in 1-2 months will sorry to spoil it but my property is living proof that they go up quick one of my investments was completed in 5-6 weeks.
I have to agree with what you wrote Ryaz11. Im looking at selling my investment properties and buying in point cook as the housing is alot better. I have had nothing but problems with my 2 investment properties.
I guess we all have houses in different parts of Moorokyle. You 2 are just lucky you have the "good" part of moorokyle
