heading east

Victoria’s east is a cultural Mecca full of character and tree-lined suburbs. Recently, the area has experienced significant growth and has become a hotspot for new-home buyers and property developers. The east has it all, from bustling suburbs such as Richmond, where cuisine and culture are always a delight, to quieter areas including Maroondah, where city and country living combine to facilitate a high quality of life.
