Wattle Park Golf Club 
Location: 1012 Riversdale Road Burwood  
Phone: 03 9808 2455 
Don’t want to feel the crowd of a typical course? Lucky for you, Wattle Park Golf Club is just 1km up the road from our village. A course designed to make you feel tucked away from the hustle and bustle means you can focus on your game and enjoy more time with your mates and less time with crowds. This course offers first class greens, sculptured fairways, mature native trees and a creek winding throughout the course, making this a testing venue for you golfers! Their café is open all day, so fuel up with a quick bite prior to teeing off or enjoy refuelling as you discuss your game with your fellow golfers. Sit back, take in the views and have some banter with your mates, what a way to end a day out on the greens.


Westfield Knox Shopping Centre 
Location: 425 Burwood Highway Wantirna South
Phone: 03 9814 5000
Did someone say they’re off to Knox? Well there are shopping centres, and then, there’s a day out. And for us here at Cameron Close your day out is just 14km away at Westfield Knox Shopping Centre. Plan a day out with a fellow resident, friends or family. You could start your day with a coffee catch up, invite your grandchildren for a morning play or stroll the mall for some much-needed retail therapy. Take a pit stop at Romano’s Coffee and enjoy a coffee made with love just for you. Need to take a rest from all that ‘retail therapy’? Why not pop your feet up in Gold Class to watch the latest flick, accompanied by your favourite drink and a light lunch? No need to move, they serve it straight to you! By now you might be ready to go home, so why not grab a takeaway dinner at Khazana Indian Restaurant and continue the day back at your place. Shopping centres can be so much more than the daily groceries! Be sure to visit the friendly concierge on your first trip to help you find your way to whatever your heart desires.

Have a special occasion coming up, but you’re stuck on the gift?! Then we hear ZINC is just for you. Popular with our residents already, ZINC is just 1km up the road from our village. From accessories, clothing, homewares, jewellery, baby and kids, they have everything you could think of for whoever your gift may be for. If your someone special is afar, don’t worry, you can take advantage of their home delivery service (minimum order value applies). Gifts don’t always have to be for someone else, you know… so don’t forget about yourself too when you visit ZINC!


Rivoli Cinemas
Location: 200 Camberwell Road Camberwell
Phone: 1300 555 400
While sitting in Gold Class as part of a Westfield is good for some, others may prefer a more boutique style cinema to watch the latest blockbuster. If that’s you, we recommend you visit Rivoli Cinema, less than 5km from our village. As most of us are familiar, film has played a fundamental role in the Camberwell community. Opening in 1940, this cinema now serves as a cultural and historical icon, available for everyone to enjoy. Get your diaries out and arrange a lady’s night with stop one being a nice meal on Camberwell Road, followed by the cinema. Head up the grand staircase and grab some popcorn or dessert, sit back and enjoy your cinema experiences in an impressive art deco design. Let the Rivoli Cinemas inspire you as a lover of film or architecture as it has been doing for many generations.


Bennettswood Bowls Club
Location: 179 Station Street Burwood
Phone: 03 9808 4373
Residents lets bowl! 4km down the road is Bennettswood Bowls Club, a club established way back in 1960 by members of the local community. With many upgrades and additions along the way, this club is still enjoyed today by its lifetime and new members alike. Of course having a game of bowls is fun and it’s a great sport to mingle and socialise with friends, but it can also benefit us in other ways. Lawn bowls is considered low impact which means it’s a therapeutic exercise that can be enjoyed by many while improving fitness, coordination and confidence. So, let’s go! Get a group together to have a game followed by a good old coldie amongst the wider community.
