it's a lovely residential suburb, multicultural friendly people. Traffic = yes hectic travel but good for kids and families as there are a lot of schools now with Saltwater, Featherbrook and a proposed new secondary school with existing schools like Alamanda, Carranballac, point cook high etc. On weekends easy access to city max 30 mins drive, a good suburb on the west, a green suburb on the west.
In General, Point cook is excellent, pretty friendly people, lots of gardens and shopping centres. Traffic can be crazy on point cook road during pick hours but if you take Boardwalk Blvd or Sneydes Road exis to Freeway then its pretty smooth. I use either of this two exits.
