BALWYN

Get to know
the area

Leafy and refined, Balwyn is a dreamy suburban neighbourhood in Melbourne’s east that affluent Melbourne families flock to. Complete with beautiful sprawling period homes, an impressive roster of elite schools and a quaint shopping strip, this charming neighbourhood provides a glimpse of how the other half lives.

Lifestyle

Picture the Australian dream, and you’ve got yourself something a little like Balwyn. The streets are eternally leafy and green, the homes expansive and the coffee freshly roasted and always brewing. Aspirational in every way, this well-manicured suburb has long been a favourite with Melbourne’s elite.

Well-to-do families flock to Balwyn for the fantastic quality of life. 

Block sizes are somewhat larger than those found in equally esteemed neighbourhoods, meaning that beautifully tended gardens are the norm, as are pools and tennis courts. In fact, a number of Balwyn’s impressive mansions are heritage-protected and recognised as being of architectural significance.

As with neighbouring Camberwell, Balwyn’s tree-lined streets are home to a number of the city’s most esteemed private schools, namely Fintona Girls’ School. Always quiet and peaceful, this pretty suburb offers a roster of appealing cafés and restaurants along Whitehorse Road as well as the jewel in Balwyn’s crown – the charming Palace Balwyn cinema.

Located just 10-kilometres from the CBD, distinguished yet warm Balwyn feels like it’s a world away.
