Seachanges are so 2000. More and more suburbanites are recognising the perks of moving further inland, with Victoria home to some of the most stunning mountain ranges Australia has to offer.

Ferntree Ridge Suburb Profile
Looking to escape the rat race? Want a home that is safe from the ever-expanding suburban sprawl of Melbourne? Beginning at the CBD, jump on the Princes Freeway and drive 75 minutes southeast. Here you’ll arrive at the perfectly charming regional hub of Drouin, a township of around 15,000 originally established to service the dairy farmers that dot the surrounding area. A slower, more tranquil life awaits here; one where you meet friends at the supermarket, cheer on the local footy team on Saturdays, and pass cups of sugar over the back fence. The developments here have been carefully crafted to make the most of the rural vibe, offering big blocks and beautiful homes at far-from-Melbourne prices. But in reality you won’t be far from Melbourne at all, thanks to the aforementioned highway that carves a path around the town. This is country living that keeps you within easy reach of the city.
