Waratah Suburb Profile
If you were to rank Melbourne suburbs by growth, whether current or potential, Mickleham is likely to sit at the very top of the list. Located as little as a 35-minute drive north of the Melbourne CBD, just northwest of Craigieburn, this is an area that was, until very recently, almost exclusively farmland. All that has changed in recent years however, with the suburb in the midst of what can only be termed an upheaval. Sprawling estates like Waratah, Trijena, Annadale, Merrifiled and Botanical have seemingly popped up overnight, with much of this residential growth being driven by the Merrifield Business Park, a newly established complex that is set to bring upwards of 20,000 jobs to the area. While the area’s development has been fast, it has also been measured – the rural essence of Mickleham has been retained despite the construction, with wide streets, big skies and friendly smiles a constant. In short, to buy here is to guarantee yourself quality of life, as well as opportunity.
