"Fantastic location, great people, I wish we had moved here sooner!"

I moved myself and my family to Laurimar recently, having lived previously in a number supposedly "Blue Ribbon" inner Northern and Eastern suburbs. My first impression is that I wish I had moved here earlier!

The tranquility needs to be experienced first hand to be believed; yet neighbours are friendly and always ready to have a chat over the fence or help out when needed.

Whilst out walking, people will actually say gday and ask you how you are, as opposed to staring at their feet which is what most people in the inner suburbs tend to do these days.

So far three of our friends have now also moved out to Laurimar and Doreen, simply as a result of experiencing the peace and quiet for themselves.

I work at Tullamarine and the travel time to work each day doesnt really concern me, given all of the other benefits that Laurimar provides.
  • Peace and quiet; visitors are always commenting on just how peaceful it is here.
  • Great neighbours with strong community spirit.
  • Facilities just keep getting better as the area develops.
  • Traffic on Yan Yean Road during peak times can be heavy
