A development located in scenic Wollert, Amber is found 23km or a 40-minute drive north of the Melbourne CBD. A family-friendly estate, two on-site schools, a community centre and a retail precinct, keep life going through the week, while conservation reserves, sports facilities and lush trails are ready for action on the weekend. But despite boasting the amenity of a big estate, Amber is a surprisingly intimate and boutique development with a tangible sense of community.

Amber Suburb Profile
Wedged between Craigieburn to the west, Epping to the south and Mernda to the east, Wollert is a suburb that has managed to largely hold back the tide of progress over the years. The rugged terrain of the area has helped – the name Wollert is a Woiwurrung word meaning ‘where possums abound’, and many of the historic red gums that have dotted the area for millennia continue to stand strong. This connection to nature is retained by developments like Amber estate, who have worked around the greenery instead of bulldozing over it. This grants residents a uniquely tranquil life this close to the city – the Melbourne CBD is just 23km due south, a drive that takes as little as 40 minutes. The location will only become more desirable as Melbourne’s north continues to develop, particularly the tens of thousands of jobs set to be offered in the coming years in nearby Mickleham.
