I know, but i need MIL to help with the kids. Plus i want to buy a house which wont happen here.
Hi Tripletime, do you live in point cook at the moment? where are you moving to? I thought you bought there.
Btw, is Point Cook built at the same time with Caroline Springs? I just feel CS is nicer when I drove through there.

Hi lily of the nile,
We moved here 3 years ago, and we are about to put our up for sale and move back to our small "country town" - dromana.
For us, it's just way too busy!
It's like boxing day sales every day of the week trying to get a park at the supermarket. Coles is just CRAZY on the weekend.
Public transport is also insane! Trying to get a seat on the train or even park at Laverton station is just impossible!
In the mornings Point cook road takes 30 mins to get 3kms to the fwy!
One road in, one road out if you know what I mean!
The whole place IMO is overpopulated!
Saying that though, I've heard the schools are fantastic (we're not at that stage yet).
And I guess to be near good schools, it's probably one of the more affordable areas.
You really just need to decide what's important to you.
Caroline Springs is about the same age, Eynsbury is younger than PC. Oldest estate here is 12yrs. CS is far nicer in my book but its not part of Melbourne area either.
Thanks for the insight Lily. You guys lucky, you have choice. For me, it's either go further west or PC I think Wyndham council just rip off our money and duck their head in the sand, why they so slow to act?? Half million dollar houses with low class infrastructure....
Caroline Springs has so much more to offer, and I'd say it's as much a part of 'Greater Melbourne' as Point Cook is.
Yep, There is a reserve/swamp area on Point Cook Rd that the council want to sell off. Residence dont want it to happen until the infrastructure has improved.
