Hillstowe Suburb Profile
First timber milling, then brickmaking, then agriculture, Officer has always been a productive place. And that fact has only become truer in recent years, as its position in Melbourne’s South East Growth Corridor has seen this previously small community grow and develop at light speed. The location is a major reason for the recent excitement – found just off the Princes Highway, Officer is as little as a 40-minute drive from the Melbourne CBD, despite being on the quiet, undulating earth of the urban-rural fringe. Developments like Hillstowe, Skymont, Scholar's Row, Grandvue and Arcadia estates are bringing modern masterplanning to the area, while the Officer Town Centre is fast developing into a major hub of the region, offering all the shopping, healthcare, transport and entertainment you could need. Added amenity can be found in nearby Packenham, although as the community develops, Officer residents will have to search hard for a reason to leave the town.
