Located in Greater Melbourne’s southwest corner, Werribee is home to a mixture of dwelling types, from 100-year-old houses to new estates on the outskirtsFull summary

Located in Greater Melbourne’s southwest corner, Werribee is home to a mixture of dwelling types, from 100-year-old houses to new estates on the outskirts, which feature house and land packages with entry-level prices of $350,000–$400,000.

James Antonio, director of YPA Estate Agents Werribee, says demand is good in the family friendly suburb, with investors “snapping up the bigger blocks for townhouses”.

“We find lots of people are doing long-term rentals,” Antonio says.

“And the vacancy rate is low. To illustrate, we manage over 500 properties, and only two of them are empty.”

Its location at the midway point between Melbourne (32km) and Geelong makes it an ideal spot for commuters, who enjoy the suburb’s quiet lifestyle along Werribee River.

Antonio says there’s huge potential for Werribee’s future.

The new Wyndham Harbour in Werribee South will provide further transport options for residents, and potential overflow from neighbouring suburb Wyndham, which is one of the fastest-growing municipalities in Victoria, according to ABS statistics.

The city has revived plans to develop 775ha in Werribee East – a move that will create 58,000 jobs and add further modern amenities to the Werribee region.
