"A fantastic place to raise a family"

Mulgrave is a quiet little suburb, surprisingly so given that there are 2 major shopping centres there - Brandon Park and Waverley Gardens, plus Sandown. The best bakery is on Wanda St. You must also try Chopsticks Chinese Restaurant on Mackie Rd - delicious. Terrific local schools. Lots of parks, sporting clubs and community groups call Mulgrave home.

"Calm, yet central"

We have been living here for 1 year now.. in our opinion, Mulgrave is a perfect setting if you are after some clamness, at the same time not be away from the hustle bustle. Highly recommended..

"Central Haven"

I've been living in Mulgrave for the past four months and loving it. I have previously been living in the west most of my life and I can honestly say I am now very happy to be living in the East. Mulgrave is a central haven for everything you could possibly imagine. There is waverly gardens for shopping, there are heaps of stores on princess highway, heaps of eateries at springvale and central city walk plus cinema, there are GP's and dental practices everywhere, public transport is close by and there are heaps of schools around.

Mulgrave is close proximity to almost everything. It is also a safe area aswell and neighbours are all friendly. The property prices here are also going up so if you looking for an investment then Mulgrave is a place to buy aswell. My property already has increased in value since four months ago. I recommend for all people, but especially for growing families and retirees because Mulgrave also has one of the nicest cemetry I've seen = )

"changed alot but still quiet the same, somehow!?!"

i went to scholl there, all my friends lived/lives there, i wouldnt go as far as to say it is safe but if you know the area well its not so bad. house prices have risen alot and you cant find a rental of a house under $300, if you can find a run down house for cheap, renovate it then sell it, a nice profit is in store.
