6 Things To Love About Sunbury

Country Living

Away from the busyness of city living, yet connected to everything you need right at your fingertips, discover Kingsfield – Sunbury’s primary living destination. Located 40 kilometres north-west of the Melbourne CBD, here are six reasons why it’s time to explore all that Sunbury has to offer. 

1. Idyllic Lifestyle

A spot like Sunbury has already-established nature reserves, winding creeks and walking tracks ready and waiting for you to stretch your legs. You can feel close to nature every day. Refreshing greenery abounds around here, along with several fishing spots (try Spavin Lake for rainbow trout or Jacksons Creek for redfin) and plenty of diverse birdlife to spot on the weekend. You might even encounter the odd kangaroo. 

Peace, quiet and privacy are easier to achieve in Sunbury. No more Friday night sirens, beeping horns or upstairs neighbours who have apparently adopted a pet elephant. Instead, the sounds of chirping birds will greet you in the morning. 

2. Easy Commute 

If the daily commute has become a daily headache, a move to Sunbury could be the cure. Amid a hub of connectivity, the Sunbury commute to the Melbourne CBD or a trip to the airport is made easy with convenient access to major roads and freeways. If you do need to travel to the big smoke, it takes just over half an hour to get to the city from Kingsfield. 

And in Sunbury, there are hundreds of professional and trades jobs available within 25kms so you can avoid those CBD-bound traffic jams. Plus, there’s plenty of no-fee or cheap parking for your convenience. 

3. Community Feel

It’s common to feel disconnected when living right in the city. But in a neighbourhood like Sunbury, you can really get to know your neighbours, not to mention your GP, your vet, your local green-grocer. A sense of purpose is bolstered by joining a variety of local sporting clubs and community organisations. 

Plus, you can find out which café has the best value coffee, which dry cleaner gets your shirts pressed just the way you like them and which local pub feels like a home away from home. 

4. Family-friendly

Think about what’s best for your family (or even your future family). In family-friendly Sunbury, idyllic childhoods can become a reality. Kids can still get up to mischief out on the street, climb trees and play “I spy” with tadpoles in the waterways here. And, your furry best friends have plenty of spots to roam beyond your backyard. 

5. Convenience 

With the long-established retail centre, medical facilities and education precinct of the Sunbury township, you have everything you need on your doorstep. In addition, a new Town Centre featuring a supermarket, convenience retail, community services and a new primary school reinforces the new Kingsfield community as a hub in Sunbury. 

6. Affordability Not only is the cost of living in Sunbury potentially much cheaper, but houses and land for sale are more affordable too. At Kingsfield, you could move into a brand new three-bedroom home from just $401,719.
