"Top of the town- Peaceful place that is hidden"

Ive been renting in westmeadows over a year or so, I actually love the fact it takes me 15 to 20 minutes to get to the city depending on traffic, which is not much and due to the tullamarine fwy widening, it will be even a easier commute to the city.

Ive lived in eastern suburbs *glenwaverly my whole life, since i moved to westmeadows it has opened doors to my lifestyle were traffic isnt much and the fact im actually closer to the city, gives me time to enjoy the suburb were your surrounded with beautiful nature and parklands, i love going for walk to the village were there are cafe's and shops allowing me to enjoy the joyful and happy people that live there. I love using the westfield shopping centre which is approx 5min drive.

The local shops are 5min walk from were i am which i use on a daily basis, really enjoy the resturants and cafe's, the suburb actually gives you a country feel with old hertiage churches, bridges and houses made from bluestone and timer. The people that live there are mostly families and retired people, this area can not be compared to glenwaverly, westmeadows is a better suburb in all aspects. i wish i actually grew up around westmeadows and surrounding suburbs, but would rather prefer westmeadows.
Last month i purchased my first home in westmeadows cant wait :))

"One of the best nothern suburbs !!!!!"

The area is excellent. It has a shopping strip, which accommodate the needs of living including medical clinc and pharmaceutical. It has beautiful heritage buildings, including church,community halls, communty centres and bridge crossing's, most of the buildings are dated back to late 1800s.

Westmeadows has over 20 shops ranging from clothing, cafes, bars, service station, mechanic shop, bakery, a (IGA) and many more shops. Westmeadows also has sporting facilities, massive parkland's with high volume of nature (trees and wildlife) there are running,walking and bike tracks.

The area is approximately 15mins away from the city via freeway. There is too much essentials of westmeadows, the list will go on and on. I have lived here with my children and spouse for over a year, it is the best choice i have made so far.

"Decent meadows"

This area in regards to it's culture is quite interesting. Crime seems to have decreased in Westmeadows and surrounding areas, however the neighbourhood still has numerous problems.

Property is affordable. The area is constantly being updated. The internet, the property, the parks and recreational areas are exceptional considering the affordability of living in this area. However, after a few months of living here, you may began to notice several problems. Neighbours tend to be quite loud and obnoxious especially late at night, however I can only speak for myself. Hooning and street kids are quite are just plain annoying. As with me, you may move into one of the updated areas only to find you are living next to public housing, which tends to attract some of the worse people.

If you are smart, I'm sure you could make living in this area work. If your not an average low income earner, this area is not worth moving into, no matter how attractive the price may seem. It's very hard to explain how a place could be both quite and loud

"Stunning area - under-valued!"

Love love love it! Live in Westfield Bvd and my backyard view feels like I am living somewhere on the valley! The view is amazing.. The house prices are so affordable and the neighbours are all nice and welcoming.
Used to live in Essendon and came down here for a quieter destination. The Church is breathtaking!!!

mjb123 Hey JasonJ,
To be honest, I thought it would be very loud before purchasing. I hardly hear the planes, and have never been able to point out a loud event and I have been there since June last year.. I think the flight path isn't directly over my house or the surrounding streets. I am originally from Oak Park, and I would say that it is as minimal as Essendon Fields.

Nothing to worry about :)

"Blue chip suburb amenities at your fingertips!"

What a fantastic place to live! Lovely neighbourhood, with great access to everything including the airport, city, Westfield, DFO, Keilor Rd cafes, lots of great schools, parks, you name it, we have it. Many of the homes in our street are being renovated, as more and more families realise how underrated this area is and move in. Absolutely love living here.

"Westmeadows - a lovely piece of heaven"

I have lived in Westmeadows for over 10 years, and it is very beautiful with lovely parks. A great location with a shopping village, bus stop, restaurants and pub nearby. Great location as its very close to the city but you feel like you are living in the country how perfect.

"Best kept secret, location, location!!"

Best kept secret. Close to all amenities- schools, shops and transport and only 15 kms from the city. Very easy access to the freeway and city. Culture over the last 10- 15 years has changed considerably- very ideal for young couples and families

"Very quiet and safe neighborhood"

A very quiet pocket in Westmeadows that backs onto Willowbrook Reserve. Great sporting facilities, tennis courts on our back door as well as Westmeadows Football oval. Great area for children to grow up in. Never had any problems of any kind, love this area! So close to airport, only 14km to city, freeway easy access, shopping centres close by and lots of lovely trees.
