"Beautiful with friendly easy going community"

I have lived in suburbs all over Victoria and Warrandyte North is the quietest, loveliest of them all. The blocks are huge. The people are calm and friendly. During covid lockdowns the streets are so quiet and safe. Warrandyte is a safe, tranquil suburb.

"Miles from anything and stuck in traffic for 2hrs a day"

Evening traffic getting through Warrandyte is on Yarra Street is only rivalled only by Hoddle Street traffic bypassing the city on a football night. CBD to Warrandyte flows okay maybe 40mins in evening peak , but then Warrandyte IGA to the Warrandyte Pub takes a further 40-60mins. It’s crazy. Hate to imagine the congestion in a bushfire emergency event. Wish I never moved here. Thought I was moving to peace and quiet but my neighbours are having a constant love affair with fossil fuels, constant song of chainsaws, blowers and mowers, dogs that are barking at their kids that no one seems to care to quiet, this is not to mention constant building works turning miners cottages into monstrosities.
The eating out is overpriced and under delivers on quality with the exception of a very few restaurants that are still expensive but at least come through with good food. Best thing about Warrandyte is it’s easier to escape in an emergency than North Warrandyte! Lord have mercy on those souls in a bushfire.

"Tranquil & Peaceful Warrandyte"

Warrandyte is a quiet outer suburb of Melbourne which is situated on the Yarra River and enveloped by bushland of Warrandyte Bush Park. With only 30 km from from the city, makes it a perfect opportunity to enjoy the day in Melbourne and suitable for workers to commute. If you’re seeking to immerse yourself in nature, Warrandyte Bush Park offers the perfect place where you can breathe fresh air or energise yourself in a very tranquil and relaxed environment. Whether you’re after a relaxing stroll or a long walking trip, the walking trails suit all levels of fitness and provides great scenic views. For more adventurous activities, you could try horse riding, birdwatching, or canoeing. Other places of attraction are Ratty Moles Riverbank Antiques, Olivigna Winery and Warrandyte Berry Farm.

For a standard 3-bedroom house, you can expect to pay approx $650.00 per week in rent.

"An historic leafy suburb on the edge of Melbourne"

We have only lived here since August 2019 but really like this suburb and have really enjoyed living here so far. Warrandyte has the feeling of a countryside town at the base of the ranges rather than a suburb of Melbourne. There is lots of greenery, no matter where you are in Warrandyte, if you look around you will see many trees. Overall this is a quiet town, of course from time to time you will hear dog barks/howls, leaf blowers and other tools at work as well as the occasional house party but not frequent enough to complain about.

Warrandyte is a nice quiet suburb on the north eastern edge of Melbourne and is serviced by Manningham council.
This is a very green suburb with plenty of trees and steep inclines. The Yarra river passes though dividing Warrandyte from North Warrandyte. There are some good walks by the river along with plenty of reserves to explore.
There is the library in the centre of town along with cafes and various restaurants. Heading west from the centre there is the post office, an IGA, medical centre, pharmacy, opticians, more restaurants and the sports ground.

Pluses:
Green (plenty of reserves)
Yarra river
Local library
Post office
Local IGA
Doctors
Pharmacy
Opticians
Various restaurants

Minuses:
Bush fire risk
No Train connection (nearest located at Eltham)
Mosquitoes

"Rolling hills and open skys"

What a lovely place to bring up a family, retire or enjoy country like lifestyle only 40 minutes away from the CBD. The area features properties that are on large blocks of land with a mix of both old and new properties. The traffic is reasonable in peak hours as there is only really one way in and out, those roads can get quite busy.
It is only a short drive to the Easter freeway, shops and schools. You will enjoy living in the area with many parks and reserves to explore.

"Don't move here!!"

Been here for 12 months. Moved from the inner city. This is BY FAR the noisiest place we have ever lived. 24/7 barking dogs all around us. At least 4-5 problem dogs that constantly bark (it is a dog friendly suburb big time). Chainsaws, leaf blowers, mulching machines, hammering, grinding - you name it, it's here in Warrandyte. Every. Single. Day. A new housing estate would be quieter than this dump.

We expected it to be "country living" and quiet compared to the city but it's the absolute pits. You need to love dogs too - everyone has one and the crap left on the walking tracks is one "feature" of this place I'd rather not see.

The only feature is Pound Bend reserve. We go there most weekends. Quiet and no dogs allowed.

The IGA is a rip off as are most of the restaurants.

So if you are thinking of moving here, I would strongly recommend a place far far away from other houses so you can realistically achieve "quiet" country life. Otherwise be prepared for disappointment.

"Country city balance"

I really enjoy the balance between working in the city and living in the bush. I have chooks, a large garden on a bush block, parrots eat off the bird feeder outside my window, the frogs chorus every night and a pair of wild ducks rear their brood in the neighbors dam. The village hums with tourists on the weekend, but is otherwise quiet. The track by the river is a great place for walking the dogs and catching up with people, and the Warrandyte market is excellent. Schools are good, kids are great and people friendly.

Please pardon my ignorance but what does " bustiers a risk" mean? Are there goth girls squeezed into Outer/under wear threatening people in some way? Oris it almost impossible to resist the urge to spend all ones cash on nineteenth century unmentionables for ladies? Or what?

"Quiet near the city"

I visit it regularly and like it so much that I want to move there from my present location in the eastern suburbs to get a feel of being away from the city but at the same time within arms reach

"Peace and Quiet of the counrty but not far from suburbia..."

I grew up in Warrandyte and all I can say is its fantastic, it has that country town feel a stones throw from the suburbs. Large houses on big blocks to country homesteads on the hills, Warrandyte has a large mixture with plently to keep you occupied, parks, river, bush, schools, ovals, skate park, pub, etc.... its all here!

Great for a family with young kids, very safe and quiet, everyone knows you and well plently of places to let the kids tire themselves out...

"Lived here for 24 years. Plan to for another 24!"

Never had any issues in Warrandyte North, apart from lack of public transport which they are currently trying to improve.

Traffic is only bad during the peak times (such as school starting and finishing) but apart from that it is very smooth.

There is rarely any noise from the neighbours (or pets). No one is around at night in the main village.

The last major crime that happened in Warrandyte never happened!

"Artists Strike Gold In Warrandyte"

First colonized by white settlers in 1839 it wasn’t long before prospectors discovered gold at Warrandyte. After a decade of surveying the district gold was struck at Fourth Hill. The history books tell us that in June 1851, gold discoveries at nearby Anderson's Creek tempted up to 150 prospectors to the area. By September the site was proclaimed ‘the first goldfield of the Colony of Victoria’. You can visit this historical site at the Warrandyte State Park just off the aptly titled Gold Memorial Drive.

Warrandyte has long been considered an artists’ haven thanks to the inspiring landscape of towering eucalypts, mountainous terrain and the Yarra River. Since the early 1800s Warrandyte has captured the imaginations of artists such as Colonial artists Clara Southern and Penleigh Boyd and modern artists Narissa Butler and Wayne Rankin. The Warrandyte Village is a picturesque and nostalgic drive if you have some spare time. And for even more impressive landscapes you can continue driving through nearby areas such as Kangaroo Ground, Research and the Yarra Valley, just a short drive east of Manningham.
