Platform is well-connected to established suburban amenity, like Epping and Craigieburn’s busy shopping centres, and daily hubs nearby. Look only a little further afield for weekend activity to some of Victoria’s most scenic rural treasures: Macedon Ranges to the west, Heathcote wine region further north and Kinglake’s superb national park in the east.
At Platform, we’ve developed a masterplan for urban
living that blends convenient amenity with beautiful
native habitat. Residents will have central access to
all the benefits of this rapidly expanding region in
As a spacious, harmonious community, Platform caters
for contemporary living – it’s a place for you and your
family to thrive.
Donnybrook Station is just a few minutes’ walk from
anywhere within Platform. Being four stops and a little
over half an hour to the CBD ensures that life at Platform
is conveniently connected to established commerce.
Plans are already underway that will see Donnybrook
Station transformed by a multi-million-dollar upgrade into
a modern commuting hub. Future electrification of the
north–east line will create a metropolitan train, rather
than a regional service.
An interchange upgrade to the Hume Highway will provide
Platform residents with continuing direct access to the
ever-expanding amenity in Melbourne’s north, as well as
an easy 40-minute drive to the CDB.
Although it’s a new community, Platform’s natural
environment is as old as time. Kinglake’s rolling hills
and lush bushland is the outstanding view across our
The crisp, clear waters of Merri Creek meander through
Platform, running north–west. The waterway crosses over
Donnybrook Road and burbles towards Melbourne through
a healthy ecosystem protected by conservation zones.
Surrounding landscaped parklands are designed
sympathetically to indigenous flora and fauna. In turn,
we’ll have a recreational haven for all, providing ample
space for active families, while homes and other buildings
will feel connected to the existing natural environment.
We’re planning for a vibrant, modern community with close access to essential neighbourhood amenities. Platform sits at the gateway to broader town-planning that takes good care of family and commuter needs. Lifestyle, transport,
educational, and health & wellbeing offerings are all within easy reach. Anything needed in the CBD is only a 35-minute train ride away.
Melbourne’s north is home to a diverse multicultural community, with a real growth of food culture, restaurants and cafes. Ever-evolving retail and entertainment will be complemented by Platform’s Village Centre. The nearby Marnong Estate is a prime example of revitalising a heritage asset into a first-class lifestyle venue.
Bordering Kalkallo, Woodstock, Craigieburn and Mickleham, Platform is at the centre of the region’s most ambitious urban development since the city’s founding. With growth comes opportunity, and we’re perfectly positioned to take advantage. A variety of business parks, proximity to Melbourne Airport and unprecedented private and government investment in infrastructure set the scene for positive prospects, now and well into the future.
Our area is set to become the education hub
of the north, with a range of institutions catering to diverse needs. We’ll have nine government schools and three private, a place for tertiary study, and Hume Anglican Grammar is already close by. Active community centres will support educational activity, and a number of kindergarten and other childcare facilities will be available to working and growing families.
The extensive nature reserve around Merri Creek accounts for nearly 40% of Platform. The green
open space and interconnected walking and cycling trails allow everyone to enjoy a range of outdoor activities, and will be complemented by a number of contemporary landscaped parks. The Growling Frog Golf Course is little more than a swing away, and a significant investment in sports facilities, fitness centres and wellness providers rounds out the offerings for an active, healthy lifestyle.
