Mitcham offers a relaxed lifestyle – less neon and nightlife, more parks and pre-schools – where you can enjoy picnicking on the creek bank at Yarran Dheran bushland park or tootling up for a bushwalk in the Dandenongs. Shopping centres around the corner of Whitehorse and Mitcham Roads, but Nunawading’s Brand Smart is also nearby. Most of Mitcham’s dining options are around this intersection too and there are plenty of cuisines for you to choose from.
Mitcham has excellent public trains and buses, and it is ideally positioned for drivers with nearby access to Maroondah Highway and Eastlink. Mitcham also has a good number of schools in the area.
The Mitcham of last century can be easily found in the many family homes built during the 1950s and 60s, which now boast beautiful established gardens and, for many, some savvy internal renovations.
You’ll also spot some period homes on Mitcham’s tree-lined, elevated streets, while on the busier thoroughfares, state-of-the-art apartment complexes are meeting the demands of those who like a more compact lifestyle.
Mitcham is a sought-after eastern suburb, ideally located for access to both the city and the Dandenong Ranges.
