Guest posted a topic in VictoriaHi, Can anyone help us please. We are moving to Melbourne in Sept this year and have narrowed it down to a few areas; Berwick, Narre Warren South, Lynbrook, Endeavour Hills. Our kids are primary school age still but we are trying to think about Secondary Schools for when the time comes in 3-4 years. Can anyone shed any light on the situation with secondary schools in these areas? Any good ones to recommend, or avoid? Also, where does Lynbrook Primary feed into? Many thanks, Sam
After finally settling on a house to buy, our lease will have to be broken and so are seeking new tenants to help out the agent. Lynbrook is a fairly new suburb just 40 mins from the CBD and this house is 3 bedrooms, 3 WC and immaculate condition. Is sited opposite the local school, Lynbrook Primary which is an excellent school. However the actual house is off the main road and therefore safe for children. just a minutes walk away is the lovely park, lake and picnic area, and just 10 mins walk are the local shops, supermarket and medical centre. Must be rented at $330 pw and bond applies, for more info or more pics please pm me. The link on realestate.com is as follows 7/22 PATERSON DRIVE LYNBROOK
Lynbrook is a picturesque estate set amongst a stand of 300-year-old river red gums. Lynbrook is a community that delivers numerous housing choices. It is a very popular up and coming suburb South East of Melbourne, approximately 40km from the city. The main access to the city is by the Monash Freeway to the North, and the South Gippsland Hwy from the South. Lynbrook is a relatively new suburb and has taken over part of Lyndhurst. It was developed in 1994 and it is expanding rapidly. In 2005 there were 1,750 households, approximately 5,200 residents and a total area of 1.85 square kilometres. The first primary school opened in January 2005 with an initial enrolment of 175 students. In 2008 they now have 550 students and expect this to peak over the next 5 years. A site has been set aside for a Catholic primary school to be built in the future. A maternal and child health centre was constructed by Casey Council and opened in early 2006. This centre also includes a pre-school kindergarten for the growing number of children in the area. Just recently opened on Harris Street is the ABC Childcare Centre. Lynbrook is surrounded by parkland the largest being the Banjo Paterson Park, a large recreation reserve, surrounding a lake. It has many paths for walking and cycling, a barbecue area, a large children's playground, open spaces and a football / cricket oval. The oval is home to the "Lynbrook Lakers" cricket team which fields a number of adult and children's cricket teams in the local league. However, they are soon to join forces with Lynbrook Primary School who are having a new oval developed along with changing facilities. Transport Plans are currently underway to open a new train station in Lynbrook between 2011 – 2016. The new station will feature: • a bus interchange and taxi rank • long-term car parking on both sides of the railway line plus short-term (kiss and ride) parking. Initially, approximately 250 spaces will be available with scope to expand the car parking as demand increases • two 160 metre long platforms on either side of the railway lines and including tactile tiles and security fencing along the length of the platforms • passenger shelters and seating • ticket machines • timetable and passenger information displays • closed circuit camera surveillance and emergency telephones • covered walkways, ramps and stairs • bicycle facilities. Pedestrian and bicycle access to the platforms will be provided via the existing underpass. Until then the nearest train station is at Merinda Park 4km away. Lynbrook has two bus stops one on Lynbrook Boulevard and the other on Henry Lawson Drive. Lynbrook Village Lynbrook Village Shopping Centre opened in March 2007. Lynbrook Village features a 3,700sqm Coles Supermarket and Liquor outlet along with 33 specialty stores, and a free standing Red Rooster. The shops include a Coles Supermarket and Liquor land, a butchers, bakers, chemist, ANZ Bank, Fruit and Veg shop, florist, travel agents, newsagents, gift shops, beauty parlour, video library, restaurant, real estate agents, fish and chip shop, Chinese restaurant and many more. Lynbrook Boulevard is also the home to the recently opened Lynbrook Medical Centre. Although you can purchase all your supplies from Lynbrook Village, you can’t beat the 5km drive up to Fountain Gate Shopping Centre in Narre Warren.
