In this week’s Sunday Suburb Spotlight, we catch up with Sales Consultant Cory Phillips for his insight on Croydon – a leafy spot in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges.
What type of culture demographic would you find in Croydon?
Croydon is very family and sports orientated. There are a variety of swimming centres, football ovals, tennis courts, lawn bowls and athletics tracks. Weekends are particularly busy with families out and about getting from one activity to the next.
What makes Croydon a great place to raise a family?
I would say the infrastructure in and around the suburb. Eastland Shopping Centre’s multi-million dollar refurbishment has attracted a lot of people to the area. Sought-after private and public schools as well as access to trains and bus services are also a major drawcard.
What are the benefits of living in this suburb in comparison to others?
It’s more affordable – you get more bang for your buck, more house for your dollar. It’s a lot easier for first home buyers to enter the market here.
Where’s your go-to for coffee or dining?
Main Street is the place to go!
Has there been any development that has boosted Croydon’s appeal?
Main Street has had a bit of a facelift recently which has had a big impact on local shopping and dining. There’s a great buzz about the area and there’s always something happening. Community groups tend to congregate and/or use that area also.
