About Rathdowne Taking its name from iconic Rathdowne Street on the fringes of the Melbourne CBD, this new development hopes to evoke the same vibrancy and cosmopolitan energy that the city centre is known for, but 30km north. Early signs are good. A beautifully planned estate is highlighted by a $40 million designer town centre, parks and waterways, and Club Rathdowne, an exclusive, residents-only venue with a pool, gym, tennis court and cafe.

Why buy in Rathdowne
Rathdowne looks set to offer the most modern and exclusive lifestyle in all of Melbourne’s growing north. It’s the little things here that make the difference - the commitment to street art, the community hubs, the no-expense-spared landscaping. Rathdowne is for those who don’t want to compromise, and with both lots and townhouses available, you won’t have to.
Rathdowne 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 Rathdowne 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.
