"Great Family Suburb suitable for 8 to 80 year olds"

Real value for money, ideally located close to Geelong CBD (5 minute bus ride), well serviced by 2 primary schools, a high school, 2 shopping centres including 2 Woolworths and an Aldi, plenty of tennis courts and football ovals. Un-pretentious residents, a mix of 50's and 80's houses, and McDonalds, KFC and Hungry Jacks close by!!!!!
Don't go to supermarkets after 8.00pm though as residents from nearby Whittington tend to creep out at that time to buy cigarettes, 2 minute noodles and 30 can cubes of Tooheys Red (Their staple diet). This may be a cultural shock to some. They are easily identified though by their unwashed disheveled appearance
Everything is close at hand and it's an ideal first or retirement suburb.
