Room with a view... That's the reality of living in Mernda and its alluring natural landscape - amazingly only 30km north-east of the city.
Located in the burgeoning City of Whittlesea, Mernda has an inviting 'window' to the Kinglake Ranges and the Great Dividing Range.
It also has some aesthetic parks and native red gum reserves including the picturesque 11-hectare Simon Creek Wetland.
ATTRACTIONS and LEISURE
The Kinglake Ranges has some classy boutique wineries, nurseries and antique stores. Surrounding the area is Kinglake National Park, a native
flora and fauna wonderland situated on the slopes of the Great Dividing Range and featuring such tourism highlights as Masons Falls, Jehosaphat
Gully and Wombelano Falls.
The Great Dividing Range is the third longest land-based range in the world, with its highest point being Mount Kosciuszko.
Mernda also boasts historical sites such as the fully restored 19th century-built Carome Homestead (comprising one of the state's earliest water-powered flour mills, known as the Carome Mill) and the local bakery which was built in 1892.
EDUCATION & SPORT
Mernda is only a short drive to La Trobe University and the RMIT Bundoora campus. It has a couple of primary schools and a secondary college.
Most of the sporting activity centres around the football/netball club. The Mernda Football Club has a proud history dating back to 1891.
Mernda Village Shopping Centre services the local community, but larger precincts are located at Plenty Valley Shopping Centre and Epping Plaza.
The City of Whittlesea has prioritised an extended rail line to Mernda and Epping North, and considers it critical given estimates of
eventually 45,000 people residing in the Mernda/Doreen growth area.
The Northern hospital in Epping is the major health service, while Mernda Villages offers medical, dental, child care and maternal health
