"Gorgeous coastal suburb, not too far out"

I fell in love with Blind Bight 5 years ago, which is when I bought my house.
What I love about it most is the clean air, being on the coast, and laid back neighbourly vibe.
Also, most people take pride in the appearance of their houses and front yards, which speaks volumes about the type of people they are.
Love it.
Pros
  • Clean air
  • A paradise for kids, no end of places to explore
  • Tidy streets and front yards
  • quiet

ALEX_80 Agree with you about the mozzies, but as for the quiet bit..That's half the appeal and why most of us live here. You didn't realise it before you moved in?

"great bush & water only 45 minutes from the cbd"

where else do you get waterfront living & natural bushland just 45 minute drive out of the CBD? Very underpriced real estate. Good investment area. Excellent schools nearby & friendly community. Quiet & hidden away, but only 10 minutes to Cranbourne & all shopping facilities & services.

"Great country lifestyle & walking tracks"

Blind Bight is off the beaten track but not too far out of town either, good for people who enjoy country life. Lots of great walking tracks through the bush and down to the water as well & a good track to walk between Blind Bight and Warneet.
Only 10 minutes to Cranbourne & Pearcedale shops and Tooradin around the corner so the lack of shops is not an issue. The area feels safe and most people greet you when you are out & about. Houses are still reasonably priced compared to the rest of Melbourne.

"caring people with a wonderful community spirit"

Quiet & off the beaten track. Wonderful community in a safe environment. A terrific place to bring up a family - close to the water to enjoy watersports, beautiful world heritage bushland, safe & violence free.
