"Suburbia at the foot of the Dandenong Ranges"

Based 30km east of Melbourne, Croydon South is a relatively small town of almost four and a half thousand residents. Ideally suited to families or retirees, Croydon South is home to a small shopping strip which houses over 20 retail outlets as well as a post office. Based near to the foot of the Dandenong Ranges and Mount Dandenong, Croydon South plays host to a single primary school, an Aussie Rules football team and two cricket teams. It is bordered by towns such as Croydon, Kilsyth, Ringwood East and Bayswater North and has an average property price of $278,000.
