Located between three main arterial roads and just 10km from the CBD, it is fast becoming a highly sought-after neighbourhood.

Sean Moloney, of Raine & Horne, says the suburb’s easy access is really pushing its popularity.

"It’s probably the location more than anything else. The whole area seems to be moving forwards. It’s growing really well,’’ he said.

With Darwin’s second largest shopping complex in the area coupled with good schooling, Millner is looking more attractive to families day by day.

“The area is getting more families moving there at this stage,” said Moloney.

“You’ve got the Homemaker centre close by, you’ve got Rapid Creek Market quite close, and you’re only 10 minutes from the CBD.

“The schooling is really good. There’s a lot of schools in the area, along with good parks and recreational facilities. These are certainly sought-after amenities.’’

The airport, hospital, university and the foreshore are all well within walking distance, making Miller the ideal place for those wanting in-demand amenities at their fingertips.

Units in Millner also boast an excellent gross rental yield of 6%.

Moloney says the entire suburb has proved to be highly sought-after with no specific streets standing out as the most popular.

He stressed that the central location played a significant part in this.

‘’People are drawn to the amenities and the location, having the markets really close as well. It has a great lifestyle and it’s so close to everything,’’ he says.
