  WHAT’S LIVING IN Dandenong LIKE?

Dandenong is a suburb located 30 kilometers southeast from Melbourne. It's had a rough past, but is undergoing a transformation as the state government pumps in hundreds of millions of dollars. The investment is creating a more pedestrian-friendly locale with better transport links and public spaces. Older homes are being replaced with updated townhomes and apartments.

But even today, Dandenong has all the modern amenities that make for a comfortable suburban lifestyle. You'll find a shopping center, several parks, golf courses, cricket ovals, and excellent schools. Residents rely on the Dandenong railway station to whisk them away to the fantastic shops and activities of the CBD, but it also has access to freeways for commuters who prefer their cars.

This suburb is home to one of the largest immigrant populations in Australia, with residents from Turkey, Albania, China, Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka. Housing-wise, you'll mostly find single-family homes on decent sized properties. 

By all accounts, this is a neighborhood for people seeking an affordable cost of living or who are looking for an investment opportunity.  

Dandenong is bordered on the north by Dandenong North, on the east by Doveton, on the south by Dandenong South, and on the west by Keysborough and Noble Park.
