Lara is quickly becoming the town of choice for families, and it’s easy to see why. Nestled between the hustle and bustle of Melbourne and the rapidly expanding Geelong, Lara puts you on the doorstep of so many possibilities. You’re 12 minutes from the Geelong waterfront, 35 minutes from some of Australia’s best beaches on the Surf Coast and a 50-minute drive or train ride to Melbourne. Not to mention, some of the most reputable schools in the country are at your fingertips.
At Austin Lara, you’ll be a part of a community that provides the perfect lifestyle for a growing family. You’ll enjoy a small-town feel with all the conveniences that city living offers. Stroll through one of the numerous parks and reserves or enjoy a picnic at the top of the You Yang mountains. Head a bit further out of town and take a drive down to the scenic Surf Coast or make a weekend out of it and wind your way through the iconic Great Ocean Road.
As a designated growth area, there are plans for a host of new amenities in the west Lara region that will make living in Austin more convenient than ever. These include both primary and secondary schools, a Community Centre and Neighbourhood Activity Centre. Getting around will be easier than ever with the addition of walking and cycling tracks and more bus services.
Austin Lara is a community that is growing and evolving, offering an unprecedented opportunity for residents to actively shape their neighbourhood.
