On the temporary blank canvas that is Melbourne’s North, Katalia spreads over some of the finest land. Donnybrook is one of the few suburbs in the area to boast a train station already and is also convenient to Craigieburn, the area’s established hub. But Katalia won’t be leaning on Craigieburn for long; plans for a town centre, sports facilities, schools, and 11ha of open space will see this development becoming a self-sustaining community for more than 1500 families.

Katalia Suburb Profile
A semi-rural Melbourne outpost that’s set to become one of the hottest addresses in the land. Donnybrook’s rise to stardom has been a quick one, driven by the fact that this town of 169 – at least according to the last census – came complete with all the trimmings of a modern suburb. A train station, hectare upon hectare of perfectly level land, a location just 30km due north of the CBD and right next door to the huge Merrifield Business Park; it all created the perfect development storm. Tens of thousand of people are set to call Donnybrook home in the coming years, thanks to expansive developments like Katalia estate, which have been designed to make the most of the big skies and country air of the area. While Donnybrook develops, residents can enjoy the established amenity of Craigieburn just ten minutes south, but such is the pace of progress that they won’t be waiting too long.
