Happy to see my home suburb in paper today. No Cookies | The Advertiser Having stayed there for 8 years, it's truly an amazing place to live probably in the whole country. Even now having based in Melb, I haven't come across a single place that match the quality of lifestyle in that area. Leafy, quiet, yet convenient and beautiful... In Spring, autumn, all the trees turned blue and red with, each house owners keep their garden so nice and beautiful, plenty of character homes. You can walk and enjoy the breeze and suddenly you are in poshy new Burnside Village with nice shops and cafes. This is something you can hardly find across the country, many of these so called suburb mall require you to drive into a huge car park and walk half a mile before you get to the exact shop. With BV, it's just so beautiful and modern but at the same time maintaining the village feel. And then there's the top international school just round the corner, and playground for kids, PT on Greenhill rd, Portrush rd.... If I were to pick one complain, probably wish there's a tram running down Greenhill rd and stopping at BV. But other than that, it's really a very undervalued suburb. If I were to miss ADL, it would definitely be my home suburb.
