"Safe and conveniently located suburb"

Located amongst some other great suburbs including Balwyn North, Ivanhoe, Templestowe and Doncaster. It is a safe and conveniently located place to live, with lots of shopping and eating options closeby. Close to some good schools including some Private Kew schools sports grounds. Highly recommended for couples, families and professionals that want a safe and peaceful area, that's not far from the city.

"Peace and Quiet - The Unknown Suburb"

I am still quite surprised that not many people know about Bulleen, even though it is no more than 15 mins from the city. Great place to live and you fell safe inside and outside your house. there are many parks in Bulleen and Yarra River is also included in its area. The only con i can think of are the schools in the area, which are not very well known and do not perform greatly
Pros
  • Peace and Quiet
  • Safe and Sound
Cons
  • Not many schools

"A Hidden Gem.........."

We have lived here for several years and love the community feel.Neighbouring Nth Balwyn, Doncaster, Heidelberg and Lower Templestowe, this suburb is brilliantly positioned. Close to freeway access cuts down on your travel time. 5 klms from Austin / Mercy hospital, near private schools, surrounded by yarra bike track and several parks including the infamous Wombats Bend. This suburb suits young families, professionals, renters and pensioners who need to be near medical specialists. Bulleen plaza and Macedon Square provide excellent shopping and at a hop, skip and a jump from Westfield shopping town, retail is in easy reach. A hidden Gem which shouldn't be overlooked.

"High potential"

Bulleen is the most under-valued eastern suburb for its proximity to the Melbourne CBD. Neighbouring Balwyn North and close to Eastern freeway, drive from Bulleen into the city is only 15mins. Bulleen is quiet and has a friendly neighbourhood. There are many parks in Bulleen which makes it suitable for families.

"Good with splashes of bad"

Its neighbours include Heidelburg, Viewbank, Templestowe Lower, Doncaster, Balwyn North, Kew East and Ivanhoe East but Bulleen itself is ideally suited to families, though some semi-legal adult entertainment operations are known to exist in the area. Boasting sporting grounds, reserves, playgrounds and park areas which provide residents with bike and walking tracks, picnic areas, BBQs, billabongs and an archery range, Bulleen is also home to a main shopping complex with a library, post office, medical centre, business centre, supermarket, takeaway outlets, cafes and restaurants. There are also catholic primary and secondary schools, a specialist school and two pre schools in Bulleen as well as a cricket club, model aeroplane club, football club, golf club, women’s basketball club, tennis centre and swim centre. Buses service the area and link Bulleen with the CBD and the nearby Eastern Freeway.
