Suburb Profile - Pascoe Vale South

Broad in size and architecturally diverse, Pascoe Vale South borders Coburg to the east and is considered a ‘northern’ suburb, yet with Essendon and Strathmore to the west, there are also very strong links to the ‘north-west’ suburbs of Moonee Valley. Pascoe Vale South has a number of outstanding residential pockets that give the area its unique flavour including the popular Coonans Hill area – offering superb views and dominated by inter-war (1930s) homes, the Gallipoli Parade precinct – a 1920s development for returned service men (hence the street names of famous AIF campaigns), and the more recent Peppercorn Estate developed in the 1990s. With most of the suburb being within the Strathmore Secondary School zone, Pascoe Vale South has become an incredibly popular choice for families. Adding to its family-friendly persona, there are also a number of other fine local schools, plenty of reserves and parkland – particularly along the Moonee Ponds Creek, public transport options, local shops and convenient freeway access.
