It’s true! Kyneton has become the epicenter of cool in regional Victoria.
A once booming piece of the supply chain for the Central Goldfields is now the hotspot for savvy property investors. In 2016, Money magazine named Kyneton as one of their top 50 places to be.
So what exactly is it about Kyneton that attracts buyers?
Proximity to the city and the airport
With a fast train and a great run on the Calder Hwy, Kyneton is smack bang in between Bendigo and Melbourne, making this an excellent choice for the professional commuter.
Better still, the airport is only 35 minutes away which is about the same time it would take someone from Brunswick to travel to the airport.
Piper Street has become a renown food hub for those seeking local produce made with attention and care. With a concentration of quality operators who value seasonality and good old fashioned hospitality, the spoils of Piper Street are just another reason people want to stay.
Arts and Culture
With the influx of urban tree-changers came a wave of creative and dynamic professionals enhancing the cultural identify of the town. With an annual calendar bursting with events to suit everyone, the arts and culture scene in Kyneton is one of envy for other communities. The Lost Trade’s Fair, the Kyneton Music Festival, classes at the Stockroom amongst others is a considerable draw card for those wanting to immerse in a cultural life.
Facilities and amenities
When a town has a hospital, people stay. When a town has excellent schools, libraries, thriving retailers and service, more people will come. Kyneton has become a town that people do not have to leave if they need a service or facility. And with a population of older people as well as younger families, this appeal should not be discounted.
Let us not forget what makes Kyneton truly wonderful. It is beautiful. Historic streets with bluestone beneath your feet. Giant oaks that rain colour upon you every autumn and the mighty Campaspe River flowing as the main artery of the town. Kyneton remains a country town at heart and its community is proud of all that it is.
