"Yallambie - Melbourne's last great secret"

A rare, affordable eastern suburb. Yallambie is close to the Eastern Freeway, great public schools, handy to numerous shopping centres and top hospitals and medical facilities. You can walk to the train station at MacLeod. It's a small, quiet pocket - formerly army homes now being gentrified, and bordered by the Simpson Army Barracks. Low crime rate, family friendly & a good location for LaTrobe Uni students.
Pros
  • Within Viewbank & MacLeod Colleges zones.
  • Plenty of parkland.
  • House prices
Cons
  • Traffic congestion on nearby main roads
