"Great for location"

I lived in Campbellfield when I was a child and returned with family during my highschool years and I'm still here. Location wise, it's great.. as long as you drive. You're about 20-30 minutes from the city on a saturday night, but sometimes traffic is a pain in peak hour especially because it's the only way out down to places like reservoir or fawkner. Buses come every hour and some lines don't run on weekends, so public transport wasn't fun in my teenage years. Noise wise, it's a little loud on weekends.

My street is full of a lot of families, most are nice. Parking is okay, some people like to park on the wrong side of the street to which they drive, which is annoying. I feel safe here, but I wouldn't necessarily walk the streets at night and my area is extremely close to the industrial part of campbellfield. In saying that, it isn't a beautiful suburb but there are parks and recreational facilities available.

Coles/officeworks/Kmart are all only a five minute drive away, as are take away restaurants.

Would recommend for location and price (blocks of land are a decent size), plan to move soon.
Pros
  • Close to everything that you need, many great islamic schools close
  • Lots of halal restaurants nearby, great for families
  • Many shops open 24/7 nearby Kmart, McDonalds etc. and Sydney Road.
  • affordable housing
Cons
  • lack of public transport
  • Bit noisy
  • Industrial / Tip

"A great suburb for families with Sydney Rd. at your fingertips"

Not far from the city (15-16kms) and easy access to the ring road, Lots of halal restaurants nearby, mosque, islamic schools, shopping, great for families from all backgrounds. Many many shops on Sydney Rd. and blocks are quite large (We live on 740sq meter block) and house prices are not expensive.
