February 2016 In Home Buyers Advice

It’s no secret that every family wants the best of both worlds: the quiet of the country and the comfort of the city. Prestigious Strathfieldsaye village combines the nostalgic childhood playgrounds of sleepy streets and bush paddocks with public transport, quality schools, shopping, and entertainment – all at your front door. No more hours stuck in city traffic, no long drives to get away.

Only ten minutes south-east of Bendigo, Strathfieldsaye is an exclusive address, with more young families leaving the rush of the city to build their dream home in a friendly, welcoming community.

Whether you’re starting a family, or expanding, here are just a few examples of what you can expect in Strathfieldsaye.


With Bendigo to the north, Lake Eppalock to the south and Melbourne less than two hours’ drive away, Strathfieldsaye village is the ideal setting for the busy family. Ten minutes to Bendigo train station, along with regular buses and easy access to the McIver and Calder highways, will keep you in touch with friends and relatives.

While you’re enjoying Strathfieldsaye’s country lifestyle and easy commute, you can trust that your children are reaching their full potential at any of Strathfieldsaye’s competitive schools.
