"An affordable area and very handy to some great schools!"

Although a much newer suburb than its neighbours in Moonee Valley, Keilor East (or East Keilor) is extremely diverse in both landscape and architectural style, including 1950s/60s weatherboards and brick-veneers around the Centreway area, huge 1970s/80s homes around Brees Road and Surrey Drive, ‘Pavilions” estate which was developed in the 1990s, to the contemporary abodes found in the new Valley Lakes estate. Bordering Essendon West and Niddrie along Steele Creek, up to Airport West (Calder Freeway), the suburb then stretches west all the way to the Keilor border (Maribyrnong River) incorporating the Slater/Webber Parades industrial estate, Keilor Cemetery, and the entire expanse of Brimbank Park. Curiously though, this western half of the suburb is part of the City of Brimbank – not Moonee Valley. Popular with young and growing families, Keilor East offers great accommodation at a number of price-points – from basic entry-level homes to million-dollar mansions, and everything in between, as well as its close proximity to a number of fine schools including St. Bernards College, Penleigh and Essendon Grammar, Keilor Heights P.S. and Essendon-Keilor College. The suburb also boasts some great amenities and attractions re-enforcing its family-friendly appeal including the popular Centreway and Milleara Mall shopping centres, local bus services, freeway access, Rosehill Park and Spring Gully Reserve.

willv Excluding Valley Lake, that's not especially affordable, which area would you recommend for a budget under 600k. What's your opinion on the Noga Ave, David Ave region?

"On The Improve"

East Keilor in general is a great place to live. It is affordable, and easy access to public transport, schools, shopping centres (Highpoint & DFO) make it attractive to families. Very close to the city, airport and freeways.
Property prices are starting to rise and my advice would be to get in quick. Especially as homes are starting to be renovated & rebuilt making EK more attractive.
East Keilor will soon become a Blue Chip area and out of the price range for most people.

"The luckiest residents in Melbourne"

A small pocket of about 3000 people, the forth smallest suburb in Melbourne has much to be proud of. All the local services within minutes from medical services, retail therepy and wonderful park lands. Quite leafy streets and children's play grounds no more than two blocks walk from anywhere in the suburb. Schools and children's day care are all of high quality. Public transport is available around every corner.

Some of the areas have both beautiful views of the city and many others have views of the wonderful maribyrnong valley. Lush grasslands and bbqs and fauna park and much, much more.

Yes its probably the most unknown suburb of Melbourne, but maybe thats because we like it like that.
