Often considered the cultural centre of Moonee Valley, the relatively small suburb of Moonee Ponds certainly has an incredible array of attractions to support its unending popularity. Quality period homes are found in virtually every street of Moonee Ponds generally ranging from late 19th century Victorians to early 1900s Federation / Edwardian homes and 1920s Californian Bungalows – offering a choice of compact single-fronts to expansive family homes. Individual block sizes however are generally much smaller than those in Essendon or Strathmore. Just about everything is within walking distance in Moonee Ponds including some of the jewels in the Moonee Valley crown – the spectacular lake, islands and gardens of Queens Park, the vibrant retail and café scene of Puckle Street and Moonee Ponds Central shopping precinct, Mount Alexander Road’s incredibly popular restaurant district, Maribyrnong Park / River, Moonee Valley Racecourse, Clocktower Centre and a number of fine public and private schools. Being only around 5-6 kilometres from the CBD, getting into town is quick and easy with a number of transport options to choose from including trains, trams, bus services and dedicated bicycle paths. A Citylink exit/entry makes a trip to airport and beyond quick and effortless.
