"Great place to raise a family!"

Mature neighbourhood with very little drama. Close to the city (5kms roughly). Great for schools, shops, transport. Affordable yet a prime area for future growth as the likes of city life continue to grow further into the suburbs. It's often let down by its more reputable side, closer to Grand Junction road, but as you come further south, Blair Athol grows into a very modest suburb, and if im to be totally honest, an under rated suburb at that.
Pros
  • 10 minutes from CBD
  • Great Public Transport and connections
  • minutes to the new Prospect Rd presinct
