With so many opportunities to work, learn and play within minutes of homes, our thriving Highlands community in Melbourne’s north could easily be described as handy, healthy and happy.

As the pace of everyday living increases, it is essential to have easy and quick access to everything you need. That’s where Highlands excels.

Highlands is host to a full range of shopping experiences, from major supermarkets to more than 120 specialty stores and a nearby monthly farmers’ market, so everything from last-minute dinner ingredients to a new outfit or haircut is only a quick dash away.     

All homes are within 400 metres of a park or recreational reserve, as well as having easy access to a world-class tennis centre, MCG-sized football field, aquatic centre, free outdoor Live Life Get Active exercise sessions and a weekly parkrun around Highlands’ iconic lake.   

With more than 20 kilometres of walking trails handy to residents and almost 700,000 square metres dedicated to sports and recreational land, it’s easy to see why Highlands is known as a state leader for healthy and active communities.    

The Stockland Liveability Index backs this up, showing that 90 per cent of Highlands residents feel highly connected because they live close to one of the community’s 20-plus parks. Highlands also ranks highly for liveability, with a score of 85 per cent.   

One of Victoria’s most successful masterplanned communities, Highlands residents enjoy quick transport links to Melbourne via the Western Ring Road, Tullamarine Freeway and City Link. The Melbourne CBD is 30 minutes away and a regular local bus service connects the community to the nearby Craigieburn Train Station.

There is also a range of health services available within the community, including the Primary Medical Centre Craigieburn and Highlands Medical Centre.
