WHO’S NEXT DOOR
Doncaster is one of a growing number of mid-eastern suburbs becoming increasingly popular with young professionals and families looking for affordable living and a manageable commute to the CBD.
The vibrant mix of demographics and nationalities adds to Doncaster's current energy as a host of brand new amenities, transport hubs and community additions encourage younger, global urbanites to make their mark here.
It’s fair to say much of Doncaster’s retail and entertainment is met by Westfield Shopping Centre with its seemingly endless choice of stores and eateries along with the Village Cinemas multiplex. But there’s a growing collection of hip coffee shops, cafés, bars and boutique stores in the town centre bringing some of Melbourne’s cool laneway vibe to Doncaster’s streets.
Adding to the appeal for young families are the local schools including Doncaster Secondary College, Birralee Primary School and Doncaster Primary School.
Sports are also popular in the Doncaster community, with plenty of local clubs to join and support
THE NUMBER GAME
Doncaster’s steady improvement and infrastructure commitment have seen its popularity become the new norm, with property prices reflecting this trend. A growing influx of apartment developments, both large and small, is meeting the equally growing demand.
Anyone looking to pick up a two bedroom apartment can currently expect to spend around $560,000, with rental for the same being around $450 per week.
