Laid over the ancient plains of Melbourne’s north, Platform is an estate that has nabbed an enviable location in the heart of an exploding area. This development aims to pair privacy and security with a real sense of community; the lots here are generous and modern, and so too are the communal areas, particularly the conservation area found around Merri Creek. And with the local train station located just outside the door, offering a 35-minute commute to the CBD, the residents of Platform will be as connected as almost anyone in Melbourne.

Why buy in Platform
Fresh country air, urban connectedness, modern estate living, and an investment that will only grow. It’s not an overstatement to say that Platform has it all. This modern estate is located in the burgeoning northern Melbourne suburb of Donnybrook, wedged between Donnybrook Station, which offers a 35-minute ride into the CBD, and Merrifield Business Park, which will generate no less than 35,000 jobs for the local area, turning a currently sleepy part of Melbourne into a proxy CBD.
Platform 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 Platform 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.
