Suburb Profile - Keilor East

Although a much newer suburb than its neighbours in Moonee Valley, Keilor East (or East Keilor) is extremely diverse in both landscape and architectural style, including 1950s/60s weatherboards and brick-veneers around the Centreway area, huge 1970s/80s homes around Brees Road and Surrey Drive, ‘Pavilions” estate which was developed in the 1990s, to the contemporary abodes found in the new Valley Lakes estate. Bordering Essendon West and Niddrie along Steele Creek, up to Airport West (Calder Freeway), the suburb then stretches west all the way to the Keilor border (Maribyrnong River) incorporating the Slater/Webber Parades industrial estate, Keilor Cemetery, and the entire expanse of Brimbank Park. Curiously though, this western half of the suburb is part of the City of Brimbank – not Moonee Valley. Popular with young and growing families, Keilor East offers great accommodation at a number of price-points – from basic entry-level homes to million-dollar mansions, and everything in between, as well as its close proximity to a number of fine schools including St. Bernards College, Penleigh and Essendon Grammar, Keilor Heights P.S. and Essendon-Keilor College. The suburb also boasts some great amenities and attractions re-enforcing its family-friendly appeal including the popular Centreway and Milleara Mall shopping centres, local bus services, freeway access, Rosehill Park and Spring Gully Reserve.
