Why Choose Murrumbeena?

Murrumbeena has so much to offer and provides both the benefits of suburban living combined with city living. Just 13km’s from the Melbourne CBD, this unique suburb has multiple commercial zones, such as Murrumbeena Village near the train station and North Road, which houses thriving cafes.

The suburb itself is more reminiscent of a village which was the aim of the recent redevelopment that took place. This is what gives Murrumbeena such a warm and cosy feel and why the demand for the area grows stronger by the year.
