Located on the edge of the city of Melbourne are the delightful townships of Eltham, Montmorency, Warrandyte, and Diamond Creek. They sit peacefully in the natural environment, embraced by the gum trees and serenaded to by the native birds. A little further out, and you come to the more rural villages of Wattle Glen, Hurstbridge, Kangaroo Ground, Panton Hill and St. Andrews. The Yarra river defines the southern boundary of this area as it runs from the babbling rapids of Warrandyte to Westerfolds Park, with its open fields, walking and bike tracks and picnic areas. To the north and east are vistas of the Kinglake & Dandenong ranges.

This beautiful area is easily accessed via the Eastern freeway, through Templestowe, or the ring road through Greensborough, as well as the Hurstbridge train line through many of the main town centres. Its peaceful rural beauty belies its close proximity to major centres.

The area has long been well-known for it’s artistic communities, and it’s mud-brick houses, and is becoming increasingly well-known for its burgeoning wine industry.
