Located 42km north of Melbourne, Ooranya is a modern community of 660 homes on larger-than-average blocks found in the quiet town of Beveridge. But while the surrounding area remains very much the rural setting, residents enjoy a 35-minute train ride to the Melbourne CBD and local amenities that are more modern city than a charming country town.

Ooranya Suburb Profile
40km north of the Melbourne CBD as the crow flies, as little as 45 minutes by car, Beveridge is a rural locality that is only just realising how desirable its location is. For the longest time this community was known for one thing: being the birthplace of Ned Kelly. While Kelly’s childhood home still stands, other more recent additions to the town are stealing some of its limelight. With established communities within an hour of the CBD becoming the hottest of hot property, Beveridge is beginning to experience real population growth, fuelled by estates like Ooranya, Glenmore, Mandalay and Minton Place. With greater headcount comes greater convenience and amenity; shopping, education, healthcare and transport developments are all in the works, and the sprawling Merrifield Business Park, set to add tens of thousands of jobs to the area, is less than 10 minutes south. But don’t worry – Beveridge won't be giving up its country charm any time soon.
