Moving to Ferntree Gully is a great idea, and with the help of a buyers agent can be easy to manage and efficient.

I moved to Ferntree Gully just one month ago. It is a quiet leafy suburb very close to the wonderful rainforest parks that I love to visit. I wanted a spacious home with a yard that wasn’t part of a prefabricated community. The local residents seem very welcoming and eco-conscious. I still have ready access to all the normal conveniences of inner urban life (i was previously in Brunswick) but the quiet feeling of a retreat in my own home when I need it.
