"Happy Hydrangea! Point Cook - Awesome Place to Live"
Just moved into Hydrangea Drive this year from inner city St Kilda. Absolutely love our street!! Its only 2 min walk to the Alamanda cafe, gym and swimming pool that me and my wife go to for lunch or brunch most weekends.
Its about a 3 min drive to Sanctuary Lakes shopping centre and about a 5 min drive to Point Cook Town centre. You have The Brook just up the road for entertainment and a medical centre that has just been built as well.
The street is sooooo quiet.. which I love having lived in apartments for the last 10 yrs. Love the feeling of living in a quiet country type community but being only 20 mins (on weekends or non-peak) from all the action of Melbourne.
You really do get the best of both worlds living in Point Cook. There is so much infrastructure going in. The shops are great and it is awesome seeing all the new things develop. Every day something new and exciting happens.
There is a school being built just around the corner from Hydrangea Drive which is exciting and the park with the pirate ship one street over is awesome and the kids love it.
The morning commute from Hydrangea Drive is about 40-45 mins leaving at 7.20am to South Melbourne where I work. In school holidays you can cut 10-15 mins off that. The commute on the way home is around 30-35 mins depending what time you leave.
Overall we are so delighted to have made the move out here and look forward to many many happy years in Point Cook.

I currently live in Greeves St, St Kilda and find it to be an excellent street. It does not have the traffic and noise that Barkly St or Grey St has and other areas of St Kilda, yet is less than a 5 min walk to Acland/Fitzroy St, Luna Park, the beach, fantastic shopping, pubs and restaurants.
It's a very safe environment because there is always a lot of foot traffic and it's very well lit at night with the council recently upgrading all the lighting in the whole street.
The proximity to the city, the beach, entertainment and restaurants is second to none and you could never get bored here. Based on this alone, you couldn't get better value or entertainment anywhere else in Melbourne!
