"Why not?"

Tynong is one of the last remaning one horse towns. The main street runs along the railway line, and the trains can take a bit of getting used to, but handy for catching the train - it's only 45 minutes into the Melb CBD, and 25 to Dandenong, 20 to warrigul and an hour to Traralgon.

There is a good community spirit, and a new real estate development in the near future in the form of a state of the art horse racing track. Great opportunites for investment, either in a home or one of the two local retail businesses. I'd suggest buying now before prices go through the roof.

A short drive to Pakenham, a booming outer suburb or one of many small country towns in the local area. There is also a prestegious roman catholic school.
