  WHAT’S LIVING IN Strathmore LIKE?

Located 11 kilometers north of Melbourne is the suburb of Strathmore. This oddly shaped neighborhood is hemmed in by Moonee Ponds Creak on one side and the Essendon Airport on the other. The Tullamarine Freeway, a major road into Melbourne, splits Strathmore into northern and southern halves.

There are tons of leafy parks and sporting facilities here, which is fitting given its a destination for families. Moonee Ponds Creek Trail follows the Moonee Ponds Creek through Strathmore and is filled with joggers and cyclists. The Napier Park is 4 hectares (10 acres) of charm where residents jog amongst the River Red Gum trees. The Lebanon Reserve, located on the banks of the Moonee Ponds Creek, is home to youth football clubs. But the most popular area, however, is Boeing Reserve in neighboring Strathmore Heights, which sports two cricket ovals, AFL ovals, and a baseball field.

Strathmore is an attractive residential neighborhood. It's full of large, single-family homes (and a few mansions) on tree-lined streets. Some sections are quite hilly so some homes have terrific views. Style-wise, you'll have your pick of 1950s-60s weatherboard or brick veneer houses, California bungalows, post-war homes and modern-looking places. And new homes are sprouting up frequrently. Home buyers will find above average home prices and rents in Strathmore. Regardless, many residents say the proximity to the city is worth the price.

For commuters, a train and buses take residents to the CBD.

Strathmore is bordered on the north by Oak Park and Pascoe Vale, on the east by Pascoe Vale South, on the south by Essendon, and on the west by Essendon North and the Essendon Airport.
