Growth Areas to Look at: Pakenham

Looking to find a dream home that can provide you with an ideal lifestyle? Pakenham just may be the town for you.

Located in south-eastern Melbourne, Pakenham has seen a significant growth in population with the development of Lakeside, Cardinia Lakes and Heritage Springs. With continuous projects both within and out of town, Pakenham has a variety of locations. Ranging from inner to outer residential locations, new homeowners will love the variety of locales on offer.


With over half a dozen childcare and primary schools scattered across town, Pakenham is an ideal spot for young families hoping to invest in their child’s education. Along with this, Pakenham is also home to two major secondary colleges, both of which are only a short drive away from Lakeside and/or Heritage Springs.

Community Events

If you’re one who just loves local theatre performances and public holiday events, then you’re in luck – Pakenham has a lot to offer!

Throughout the year, locals can enjoy a wide array of seasonal events within each area of town. From News Years Eve fireworks, Australia Day sausage sizzles, to the town’s annual Pakenham Show and Yakkerboo Festivals – families will love this town and the events on offer!

However, if you’re after some local art and live performances, then we’ve got news for you. With Pakenhams Cultural Centre, residents can enjoy a wide array of local shows and community events through their state of the art venue.

Commute and Public Transport

When investing in a new home, one of the most important factors to note is just how long it will take to travel to work. For those who are working in Melbourne, Pakenham is just a 50 minute drive towards the city through the Princes Freeway.

Though if you prefer public transportation, Pakenham also provides two train stations to those located within mainstreet and Cardinia Road. Travel time is roughly an hour for those hopping off within the Melbourne CBD, with train services every 20 minutes.


When looking at a major town, it’s important to know whether or not it can accommodate your retail needs and services. Thankfully, Pakenham is filled with a variety of major outlets dedicated to servicing all your basic supplies and necessities.

Maybe your looking for something a bit closer to the sea, perhaps Frankston?
