"Nice place to live"

I have lived here for 20 years and mainly still feel it is a nice place to live However the neighbours all along the street have changed and are nowhere near as friendly as they used to be. People used to give each other a friendly wave as they drove along but no more. Neighbours don't seem to want to get to know each other nowadays. Perhaps this is a reflection of society in general. Still we are about fifteen minutes tops from the station, can walk to the shops or the local pub in about 15 minutes and the kids can walk home from both primary and high schools. It is a bit hilly so not really suitable for elderly people but good to keep you fit if you're under 70!
Unfortunately the traffic in Diamond Creek township has increased dramatically in the time I've lived here to the point I would love to move somewhere out of town to get some sanity back ! It's a nightmare at peak hours and is becoming extremely difficult to find a car park at the shops at any time of day
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Can walk to the station, pub and schools
  • Safe for kids
Cons
  • Hilly

"A great place to live"

Inverloch is the way our suburb in Melbourne used to be ! People here are courteous, friendly and willing to lend a hand when you need it. Our neighbours give us a wave as we drive along the street. The beach is beautiful, the traffic is quiet and there are rarely queues in the shops or restaurants except at holiday time. We have a holiday home there and spend most weekends there. We plan to retire there in around 5 years and hope the fast pace of life in Melbourne hasn't spread as far as Inverloch.
I hope bupbow who did the previous review thinks twice before returning to the chaotic traffic, stress and high cost of living in the city
Pros
  • Peace and quiet
  • Beautiful beaches to walk along
  • Can buy all the necessities of life without travelling further
Cons
  • too many people are hearing how lovely it is !
