Situated a 45 minute drive north of the CBD, and 10 minutes beyond the exploding suburbs of Mickleham and Donnybrook, Melbourne’s tendrils are slowly creeping towards the town of Wallan. Despite that fact, this settlement has managed to firmly hold on to its country charm. And in Wallanbrae, the town’s newest development, you have an estate that stays faithful to this rural feel. A tranquil life is on offer here, but one that doesn’t skimp on amenity, as you’ll never be more than a short drive away from all that a modern suburbanite might need.

Wallanbrae Suburb Profile
With the development of Melbourne’s north in full swing, particularly in the suburbs of Mickleham, Donnybrook and Wollert, the opportunity to secure a quiet slice of rural life that remains within striking distance of the CBD appears to be evaporating. Until you arrive in Wallan, that is. 45km due north of Melbourne, Wallan is surrounded by the farmland of the Lower Goulburn Valley, and is home to a welcoming and friendly community of a little under 10,000. Here you’ll enjoy all the perks of an established and self-sufficient township, such as education, healthcare, shopping and a train station, while still being within easy reach of the Melbourne CBD, which is as little as a 45-minute drive or 40-minute train ride away. The charms of Wallan are beautifully encapsulated by Wallanbrae estate, which offers an array of communal spaces that only enhance the already strong community spirit of the area. If you’re hunting for a perfectly balanced life, look no further.
