Ringwood

Print This Post Print This Post

Located 23km East of Melbourne’s CBD with a population of 15,185. (2006 census). Ringwood greatly benefited from the recently completed Eastlink road (built 2008) and along with the Ringwood Bypass has greatly assisted the transport of traffic in and out of the eastern suburbs from the inner city areas. The suburb is popular with families and as the population has grown facilities have improved tremendously.  Eastland shopping centre has expanded over the years and contains around 235 shops along with a cinema complex.  It’s the largest shopping centre in the City of Maroondah.  There is a wide choice of primary and secondary schools in the suburb, and park land is abundant. Most properties are owner occupied, and housing detached.  However under the Government’s future plans for Melbourne’s population boom the suburb has been highlighted for high density development around the public transport  zones which will increase the number of high rise apartment blocks.
