I’d hate to live in a town called Poowong – or Dumbalk, such unfortunate names! But a drive around the area last week highlighted what a growing place it is.
With the expansion of our great cities, more and more people from Melbourne are choosing to have the best of both worlds by building and renting properties further out of the city and commuting to work or creating home offices.
The local pub is usually a good indication as to the popularity and prestige of a country town – and the pub at Poowong (from the outside) looks really cool!
Poowong seems to be one of the next real estate boom areas as development and facilities are increasing rapidly. What once was a slummy area is turning into something like a boutique-style suburb. It will be an interesting place to watch over the next few years.
