A hidden gem in the heart of Manningham
Templestowe Lower is perched right in the midst of some of Manningham’s best attractions. Along its northern border, find the sprawling Yarra Valley Parklands, a peaceful spot for a stroll or swim on a sunny day. To the south, Manningham Road presents superb shopping and medical services, with freeway access a stone’s throw away. Within its borders, Templestowe Lower is packed with lifestyle perks: excellent schools, including Templestowe College and St. Kevin’s Primary School; abundant bus transport and leafy, family-friendly streets. More affordable than its neighbours but no less appealing, this picture perfect suburb is a gem for families drawn to its convenience and easy charm.
Macedon Square has everything for everyone – great shops, cafés, an Aldi and a Woolies, and my favourite pizza place in Melbourne, Pizza Espresso.
