"A new and lovely quiet suburb"

I've been living here for over a year and have found it to be a very quiet and lovely place.
It's growing rapidly with the new estate, Cloverton and Kallo, bringing new affordable houses.
It's right next to the Hume hwy, which brings you back to Craigieburn in 5 minutes or Coburg in about 20 minutes.
This area is planned (and accepted by Victorian government bodies), over time to build several schools, new roads and a main business and shopping hub. There is also a nearby train station that is being re-newed.
There is a lot of developing opportunity here.

Expect usual building and development in various plots of land in the area, but these are usually finished within about a year each.

After some research I found that some of the negative statistics on the internet with this suburb are are actually inherited from other neighboring suburbs like Craigieburn (which has the same post code - 3064) as well as the old town of Kalkallo (which is physically bordered off from the new estate), and from my experience do not actually reflect on this area.
