"A hidden gem 12km from the city."

Gowanbrae is a beautiful, quiet suburb that is filled with grown tress, parklands and bike trails that take you through Moonee Ponds creek and to the city. We have been here for 2 years now, and the neighbours are incredibly friendly, and always say hello when they are out on their walks. The neighbourhood is quiet, peaceful and is tucked away behind Essendon Fields. It's 5minutes from the sought after suburb of Essendon and Moonee Ponds, down the road from Lamana and 3 minutes to freeways taking you to the CBD in 12km. The neighbourhood is known for having some of the most sensational views of the City and surrounding parklands, and properties range from townhouses to large family homes. The suburb is complete with a highly sought after long day care centre, fish and chippery, convenience store and beauty salon, and to top it off one of Australia's internationally recognised model's and tv personalities resides here.
