"Accessible and safe"

It's not a cheap place to live but considering its safe, family-friendly, abundant in heritage and 12km from the CBD, I think Ormond is good value for money. Neighbouring Glen Huntly, for example, doesn't tick all those boxes, yet is more expensive.

We moved to the area 6 months ago when we purchased our first family home, and so far we're really happy here.
Pros
  • McKinnon school zone
  • 5km from Brighton beach
  • Lovely heritage homes
Cons
  • North Rd shopping strip is really outdated
  • No express trains stop at Ormond station
  • No walking tracks apart from a small park
