"Great semi rural town, increasing in services rapidly"

Moved here about 3 years ago and it is a great little town for a number of reasons. Very friendly community feel, fresh air, little traffic in town itself, fab market every month, lots of local sports and community groups, affordable housing, close to country areas yet only a short drive down Hume toward urban shopping such as the new Craigieburn Central complex and Epping Plaza. Central streets can be a bit less desirable, mainly just a few local kids, noise etc but away from the inner roads there is plenty of space and quiet to be found. Easy drive to areas such as Hanging Rock and Woodend etc which are lovely. VLine service direct to Melbourne from Wallan station. Good choice of state, Catholic and Private schools if you include the town of Kilmore, a ten minute drive north. Many residents commute at least 30 minutes upwards for employment.
Pros
  • Fresh air, easy to reach scenic areas
  • Community small town feel
  • Access to freeway for travel, commute etc
Cons
  • More decent restaurants and cafés would be good
  • Not enough talk about how good the area is
