"Walk to Bus, Park, Schools, Health Nurse and Tennis Courts. BEST LOCATION!"

Sainsbury Avenue is one of the best streets to be in. Gr8 Neighbourhood, friendly people,walk to the tennis courts, park, schools, kindergarten and the health nurse. Walk 2 minutes to the bus stop which takes you to Watergardens Shopping centre and also infront of the Watergardens Train Station. It's only 12 stops into the heart of the CBD by train taking only 35 minutes-Who needs a car!! Hillside is not far at all from the CBD or Inner suburbs. It only takes 20 minutes to get to say Brunswick and its a straight road all the way down to the Tulla freeway to get you into the CBD. By car it takes, in Peak hour, approx 45 minutes non peak hour 30 minutes. Its not that bad is it??? Ive lived here for 8 years and the trip on the tulla to get to places is actually a lovely drive better than driving on the westgate to get to Point Cook and coming from pointcook to get to the CBD its a horrible drive and ugly views, atleast in Hillside you have nice scenery as you drive to the inner suburbs or CBD and its ONE STRAIGHT ROAD to get to anywhere, easy access to Ackland St St.Kilda and the Beaches. Im a Brunswick girl origionaly for the past 28 years so coming from there to Hillside has been great! Everything is new and fresh different nationalities all being from good backgrounds and middle class to high class families living in Hillside. Behind Hillside is Hilside 2000 thats where all the Million dollar properties are. this will push or has been pushing Hillside house prices up and will continue to rise as more people REALISE that HILLSIDE is a gr8 suburb with all amenities just close by that you need. I hardly go to the CBD, what for when i have easy access to Watergardens, Airport West and Highpoint Shopping Centres!! And our Buses take you there! We even have a bus Service that takes you to Puckle Street Moonee Ponds if you dont like trains... So come to Hillside you wont be dissapointed! Hillside needs to be talked about more as its undervalued and not enough people know about this growng suburb. Its underrated big time. Enjoy Hillside!!

"Help!"

I went to Hillside today and i think it is a really good place to settle down. Is there anyone who could tell me that is there any radio transimission tower around this area? I heard there is one between Sydenham and St Albans.

Thanks for any reply!

yogi There are two huge ABC towers on Kings road on the boundry of Keilor Downs and Delahey. These towers in are unsightly and in time pose a health risk depending on your location to these towers.
hope this helps

"Good family living"

Hillside is close to all facilities needed for a young family.
Only problem is the bus service but thats most likely everywhere.
Hillside is clean and safe and close to all infrustructure. Hillside is an area for everyone.
