"Great place to live in!"

Bundoora has recently become more costly in the recent years. House prices have gone up but there has been houses that have been bought for a bargain. There is a lot of parks and great open spaces. The nearest shops are at walking distance.

Then there is the traffic. It is a shocker between 8:00 and 11. And between 3:30-6:300 but what area doesn't have traffic between those times. It is a lovely area overall. I have lived here for 9 years now and I have no real complaints. The trip to lygon would take around 40 minutes. Good place.
Pros
  • Public transport
  • Lively
  • City isn't far
  • Great doctors
Cons
  • Busy plenty road toomuch traffic on peak hours

"Great people and everything you need."

Having grown up in the area a may be seen to be bias. Its no accident values in Bundoora a risen steadily over the last 10 years. From Tram route 86, bus services to local primary and secondary schools, Latrobe University, RMIT University and Bundoora Park. Then you are spoilt for choice with Bundoora Square, University Hill and the newly complete Polaris for all your shopping needs. Bundoora is an ever changing affluent suburb with lots to offer.

"Bundoora is the best place"

Bundoora is a great suburb to live in, we live off grimshaw street near plenty road and absolutely love that everything is walking distance... Great doctor, variety of shops (Coles, Safeway or aldi) , fast food choices, public transport if you need it. This suburbs gonna boom! Our house has doubled in price in 7 years. Great place to buy! And 20-25 minute drive to the city. Safe, family friendly neighborhood. P.s Never seen a "hoon" around my streets so not all of bundoora has hoons and I been here 7+ yrs.

"Greenwood Drive is like living on Bell Street"

Bundoora is full of hoons and students, at night you can expect vandalism, drunkenness and cars doing burnouts at most intersections and roundabouts. Greenwood Drive would be the absolute worst street in Bundoora, its like living on Bell Street, carries a lot of traffic, A LOT !!!!
Pros
  • Public transport
Cons
  • Insane amout of traffic and hoon drivers
  • Busy plenty road toomuch traffic on peak hours
  • Far from City

Bob74 Talk about hyperbole. Bell street ... are you kidding??? "Expect" vandalism and drunkenness, burnouts at "most" intersections and roundabouts, Greenwood carries "A LOT !!!!" of traffic ... what utter rubbish. As for being a long way from the city; this may be true if you're used to living in Carlton, but you should try getting into town from urban growth areas like Mernda or Pakenham!

JK17 Not utter rubbish, but a little exaggerated. I've been living here for the last two years and it's not ideal. The traffic isn't too bad, honestly, but you can expect drunkeness, firecrackers, loud music, 'hooning' and such regularly. My mailbox gets vandalized often, to the point where I have stopped asking my landlord to replace it because it's a waste of money to do so. This is close to the sports oval / tennis clubs, so roughly around the middle area. The Watsonia end of the street is a lot more quiet, seemingly, as is the Plenty Rd side (minus the noise from Plenty Rd traffic).

Not the nicest street to live in, honestly. I plan on moving as soon as able. But I'd personally give it 3 stars, not 1. There are much worse streets out there to live on.

"BUNDOORA without a doubt the best in the north."

University Hill
By far the best development in the north east, large blocks beautiful landscaping and views, close to all possible retail / amenities from schools to childcare / medical. With majority of the houses not yet constructed it is already looking serene and a peaceful place to reside. No regrets watsoever., The prices are also quickly exceeding expectations.
