While many are choosing to live in our increasingly congested major CBDs, particularly in apartments as density increases to cater for growth, others are instead moving to a rising number of developing satellite cities – smaller standalone cities outside the major metropolis, but still close by.
Being further from our CBDs, satellite cities have a greater supply of land. This means they provide more affordable housing, providing an opportunity for people to achieve the great Australian dream of owning a house on a sizeable block with a backyard.
These Master planned Communities aim to decentralise employment by creating nodes outside major centres. This reduces the need for people to travel to the CBD for work, helping them avoid traffic congestion and long commutes.
They combine live, work and play aspects with schools, childcare centres, shopping centres, parks, playgrounds, sporting facilities, medical facilities and industrial areas, as well as public transport for those who still commute to the city.
Within these communities there are some townhouse & unit packages available, though most lots are for house and land packages.
