"The best town in Gippsland"

So proud to live in Warragul. Can't think of anywhere I would rather live. Beautiful parks, streets and homes. Excellent school options including public and private primary schools and secondary schools. Fantastic shops and not too far from Melbourne. Great community spirit.
Pros
  • Nearby schools
  • Wonderful homes
  • Parks and tree-lined streets
Cons
  • Sometimes hard to find a carpark in town

"Ahhh Warragul!"

One of the worlds best kept secrets...if your over 60! i love not being the only one who does gardening in my street,when i look around every bodys doing it its a great atmosphere..the sounds of mowers and secoteurs, oh and did i mention the roses, mmmm roses! great wheel chair access into town its all down hill!! a bit harder getting home though so i bought an electric one with a roof ,because it rains quite a bit, but thats also good for the garden, so enjoy yourselves here.

"Ok to live here but the shopping and fine dining is terrible"

Warragul is caught between two worlds...the 1950's and the 21st century. The general community wants it to go forward but the council and developers are determined to make Warragul stay where they think it belongs and that is in the hands of a few at the cost of planned and sustainable growth.
The shopping strip is a joke. Twenty five minutes to find a park in a continuous merry go round of cars. Pedestrian crossings that defy imagination; fourteen in a half kilometre stretch.
Poor dining, outrageous prices and a terrible choice in products.
The majority of Warragul shop in Narre Warren for good reason.If you are palanning a shift to West Gippsland for peace and quite, brace yourself if Warragul is where you choose. Head north to Neerim South or stay west in Bunyp/Garfield. Same shopping, same pub meals but closer to Fountain Gate.
Forget Warragul!

lilllly Although you are fairly entitled to your opinion, I have lived in Warragul most of my life and find it to be a really nice town. Most of the pedestrian crossings have been removed and the parking is not as exaggerated as you say. Warragul is a beautiful little town and the shopping is not that bad. Nice place to live, suited to almost everrybody except city lovers.

"Everything here for an Organic way of life."

Buln Buln East offers a fabulous clean and healthy life style for city slickers and family dwellers. It has everything.... With Warragul close by and the Neighbours as friendly as Pie, this is the place to live if you want to escape the rat race without going out too far to get it.

In our time at Buln Buln we have experienced Lyerbirds, echidnas, wallabies, snakes, and all the wonderful interest this brings. We have our own park so we dont use the parks, we have our own veggies and orchids, and heating system, so we don't take much out of the grids we collect our own water and live sustainably, Im sure everyone else will get there eventually, but if you want to get ahead , this is the place to do it... We love it. Its truely green. People can talk about sustainability but this is how to do it on a grand scale.
