Whittlesea LGA - Northern suburbs of Melbourne
The City of Whittlesea has been a consistent performer since 2000, delivering price growth almost every year, an achievement that has been particularly noticeable in the last two years as the Melbourne property market overall began to decline.
Whittlesea’s driving forces are rapid population growth and major infrastructure spending with the City of Whittlesea being the third fastest growing municipality in Victoria.
Three new stations on the Mernda train line provide one example of the extensive number of infrastructure projects rolling out across the precinct, melding the once rural outpost with modern urbanisation.
A new city is being developed in Mickleham; multi-national businesses are moving into business parks at Epping, Thomastown, Mickleham and Bundoora; and new residential estates are plentiful.
Housing affordability and easy access to key amenities, including transport links to the Melbourne CBD, remain vital attractions for the Whittlesea LGA.
This report covers Bundoora, Doreen, Epping, Lalor, Mernda, Mill Park, Sth Morang, Thomastown, Whittlesea and Wollert.
