Lifestyle

Williamsons Estate is that rare find – a superbly designed contemporary community in the heart of a prestigious, established suburb. Doncaster, in Melbourne’s east, was once known for its productive orchards. Now it combines lush greenery and rich history with comfortable and appealing family homes.

    The orchards of Doncaster may be gone, but this suburb remains a green and leafy place. It lies just south of the Yarra River corridor – a broad band of bushland reserve and parkland stretching from inner Melbourne to the beautiful Yarra Valley wine region. Here you can walk, cycle, picnic and enjoy a range of leisure activities. A round of golf at the Rosanna Golf Club is a great way to relax in a beautiful woodland setting.
