Mt. Atkinson Estate
There’s an open and free feeling about the suburb of Truganina in Melbourne’s west. Despite being 25km from the CBD, it has avoided becoming part of the urban sprawl, retaining a rural, airy feel. Mt. Atkinson seeks to keep it that way. A community that will eventually be home to 4200 families, careful planning will see a majority of them enjoying views and direct access to a 50ha conservation reserve that dominates the development.

Mt. Atkinson Suburb Profile
Found in Melbourne’s fast-developing west, as little as a 25-minute drive from the CBD, Truganina is a rare and unique opportunity. The suburb is named after Truganini, the last full-blooded Aboriginal Tasmanian woman, who visited the area for a short time in the 1800s. At that time, and indeed until just a couple of decades ago, the area was nothing more than grazing land. Things began to change at the turn of the century however, and haven’t let up since. From a population of a little under 3000 in 2006, Truganina is set to be home to around 40,000 by 2031, with the likes of Mt Atkinson estate spurring this incredible growth. While the quick access to the city is a major perk, the area is fast growing into one that is decidedly self-sufficient – manufacturing in nearby Laverton, a proposed business local park and ever-increasing amenity mean that Truganina offers opportunity by the bucketload.
