"Quiet little suburb that is close to everything."

Tullamarine is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, a 17 km drive north-west of Melbourne's central business district and 14km from the CBD in a direct path. A 20 Min (25-35 Mins in peak hour traffic) drive to the CBD and 5 Min drive to the Airport, it has quick and easy access onto Tullamarine Fwy, Calder Fwy and Western Ring Rd which will link you with quick access to the CBD and greater Melbourne region. It has a new surf park (URBNSURF), a large shopping center (Westfield Airport West), smaller shopping center (Gladstone Park) and many other shops, cafes and restaurants only a few minutes away. You are less than 10 mins away from LaManna Supermarket (Essendon Fields) and Essendon DFO and not much further are the great selection of cafes and restaurants in Essendon, Niddrie, Moonee Ponds and surrounding areas. Closest major shopping center is Highpoint which is the 6th largest in Australia and only 15 mins away.

Tullamarine is next door to the Melbourne Airport but it is not in line with the flight paths of the airport so noise pollution from aircraft is extremely low and as it sits between both Melbourne and Essendon airports it is very unlikely to have a flight path overhead in the foreseeable future as neither airport would want aircraft crossing over from the other airport.

"A terrific family friendly place to call home!"

Located approximately 17 kms from the CBD via the Tullamarine freeway, Gladstone Park is a great place to live.

Originally developed by Costain Developments in the early 1970's with AV Jennings being the builder of choice for most people at the time, the area was a hugely popular suburb for people working at Melbourne Airport and first home buyers.

Forty odd years later not a lot has changed with Gladstone Park today still very popular with first home buyers. It's close proximity to the city, great freeway access, Gladstone Park Shopping Centre, 4 schools; Gladstone Park Primary, Gladstone Views Primary, Good Shephard Catholic Primary and Gladstone Park Secondary College. There is also a bus service that runs through Carrick Drive, South Circular Road and North Circular Road. The bus commutes to the tram in Airport West and Broadmeadows train station.

There are sporting ovals and parklands for children to run free at Jack Ginifer Reserve in Carrick Drive and Gladstone Park Reserve in South Circular Road opposite Rylandes Drive.

In addition to the Gladstone Park Shopping Centre, Westfield Shopping Town in Airport West and Broadmeadows Shopping Centre are just a short bus ride away.

There is a Senior Citizens Club in Carrick Drive near the Uniting Church and Bowls club and we have the new Good Sheppard Cathedral in South Circular Road.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a first home buyer or a family, I'm sure you will agree once you check the area out, you too will agree that Gladstone Park is a great place to call home!

"Best this side of town!"

Where else could you be so close to so many shopping centres such as Gladstone Park Shopping Centre and Airport West. Broadmeadows and Highpoint are also not that far away. Do you want to get away? Only a few mins drive has you on the Tulla to the city and beyond, on the Western Ring Road towards Greensborough or Geelong and you are so close to the Airport, without the noise! There are plenty of school in the area, and lots of parks. Bus lines do service the area, but thats about it and there are not many restaurants to eat out at. You can park-drive to the tram and cafes in Essendon are not far away. There are quite a few little medical centres and you have hospitals in Broadmeadows, Epping and of course RMH and the Children's with direct access on the Tulla. MFB, Ambos and Police are local operating out of Tullamarine and Broadmeadows. Traffic is light and the neighborhood is friendly and only getting better. Get in now before it is too expensive and you can't!!
