Montmorency

The historic suburb of Montmorency is one of the most desirable locations in Melbourne’s outer north east. Montmorency has kept much of its charm and  holds a relaxed, family friendly atmosphere.

Situated close to the Hurstbridge railway line, it makes it an easy 18km commute to the CBD. Montmorency village has a vibrant community atmosphere with an array of shops and eateries. The main shopping area along Were Street is lined with trees and footpaths lined with mosaic pictures representing scenes from oral histories of the suburb.

Dotted with parks and gardens, Montmorency features several reserves and recreation areas along the Plenty River. With a child care centre and three schools within the suburb, ‘Monty’ makes the perfect place for families who enjoy privacy, peace and an active lifestyle.
