"Beautiful place and a great community spirit"

Without a doubt, Ferny Creek is the jewel in the crown of the Dandenong Ranges. Close enough to suburbia and shops and public transport, it is just far enough away from all this to be a sanctuary from the day to day drudgery of work and school life off the mountain. With a sensible approach and response to bushfire safety, it is a safe place to live. Wallabies, echidnas, lyrebirds, parrots live happily amongst the residential areas and there is no better place to give kids an upbringing in the 'real' world! The best of all worlds, with no compromises. Excellent primary schools, local churches, wonderful, welcoming community, great tennis club, netball club, scouts, and other community groups, it's easy to see why people love Ferny Creek so much. Live here and be happy and safe -- the way people have done up here for well over a hundred years.
