Moonee Ponds is appreciated by its 12,000 residents for containing numerous eateries, bars, cafes, shops and facilities within walking distance. It has substantial commercial areas along Mount Alexander Road, Puckle Street and around the Moonee Ponds railway station, which is located on the Craigieburn line.
As Moonee Ponds is located only 7km from Melbourne CBD, it is equally well known for its vivacious charm as well as its outstanding location. This fantastic suburb is also famous for quiet and appealing streets, and the little parks that are nestled within the streets provide a persuasive argument for living in suburbia within touching distance of a big city.
Major features of the area include Moonee Ponds Creek Trail, Moonee Valley Racecourse, Moonee Ponds Central Shopping Centre, The Clocktower Centre, Puckle Street retail area, Maribyrnong Park, Ormond Park, Queens Park and a number of primary and secondary schools.
