Get to know your city
Acreage with amenities
To the west, Donvale is a leafy suburb with A-grade amenities. Move further east, and you’ll find yourself in a bushland enclave of acreage properties and towering gum trees. Just 19 km from the CBD, Donvale is a handy base for professionals, and with its close proximity to Doncaster, it’s minutes from top shopping too. Leading private schools like Carey Baptist Grammar School and Whitefriars College are based here, as are some of the area’s best sport facilities. In the midst of all these conveniences, Donvale maintains a distinctly quiet, peaceful profile.
The bike paths here are fantastic! You can ride all the way to the city, with lots of great stops along the way. My kids and I used to bike to Ruffey Lake Park for picnics.
