Combine all this with a convenient location right next to the Eastern Freeway and you have a more affordable suburb jam packed with everything you would expect from one of Melbourne’s most prestigious areas.


Doncaster has something to offer every member of the family with a lush, green golf course, a world class shopping centre, an abundance of parks and a melting pot of international restaurants there’s no surprise Doncaster is attracting modern families as well as younger, independent people attracted to the new modern apartment buildings and convenient transport links.

Known by locals as ‘Donny’, the suburb consists of several historical buildings, some new high-rise apartments and developments, however the majority of the suburb is typical of many of Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, with extensive low density housing. The area has a great sense of community pride and inclusiveness, embracing all nationalities, ages and religions, with a variety of places of worship, social clubs, sports clubs, libraries and recreational facilities.
