Located just over a kilometre away is Vermont South Shopping Centre, how convenient!

Delightfully, the centre is currently undergoing a fancy facelift so you can pick up your groceries, fill your script, grab a coffee or some specialty food in style. So whether you’re picking up your weekly groceries at Coles, grabbing a coffee with friends at The Roasted Coffee Bean or enjoying the good food at Ramen & Dumpling House (with dumplings to die for!), it’s right within walking distance for you.


Bushy Park Wetlands

Enjoy trails that pass Shepherds Bush, Napier Park, Drummies Bridge Reserve and the pony club. From Koomba Park, visitors can walk or cycle across the footbridge over the Dandenong Creek, then head south over Burwood Highway and take the marked trail to the wetlands. And for those birdwatchers amongst us, you can find up to 90 bird species recorded within the area, ranging from water birds to bushland and farmland birds! What bird are you yet to sight?
