"Oaklands Way Lakeside Estate"

We have been happy residents in the Lakeside area since November 2016.

The most pleasant surprise was not the "big lake”, but the other lakes and parklands within very short walking distance. Our daily dog walks are really excellent including a specific leash free area.

The birdlife is quite extraordinary for a suburban area, with lorikeets, rosellas, galahs, blackbirds, wattle birds and even kookaburras being numerous and vocal.

On the lakes we have ducks, swans, water fowl and the occasional ibis. The latest episode is to see five new cygnets born recently to two large black swans, and to watch their daily activities.

It is an amazing place where a morning walk is so interesting and uplifting. The people here are friendly and helpful and there seems to be a wide variety of both young and old.

The train and bus services are easily accessed and all shops are within walking distance.

We love living in Lakeside and this is a very safe place to live.
