Choosing the best community for you and your family

So, you’re planning on buying, and maybe building, a house. One of the first and most important factors to consider when you embark on your new home journey is the location and neighbourhood where you’ll ultimately be living.

Most of us want to live in a community that’s attractive, safe, affordable, alongside other people we can imagine forming friendships and connections with. And, if we have a family, we’ll probably also be looking for access to playgrounds, good schools and other amenities.

Introducing Neighbourhood Watch at Donnybrae

At Donnybrae, we believe that a connected community is a happier, safer community. That’s why we have teamed up with Neighbourhood Watch Victoria as one of their “Building Community Together” partners to launch Neighbourhood Watch at Donnybrae.

Since 1983, Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) has been encouraging, advising and educating Victorians on how to protect themselves from crime; keep themselves, their family, their home and belongings safe, and get to know their neighbours and feel part of their community.
