3942 – Blairgowrie
Blairgowrie is a very accessible and popular area for holidaymakers and families, tucked neatly between Rye and the salubrious Sorrento near the tip of the Mornington Peninsula. With the rugged surf of its “back beach” on the Bass Strait side and the more sheltered calmness of its Port Phillip Bay “front beach”, there are a wide range of amenities within its boundaries and neighbouring postcodes.
Median house prices in the area for the year finishing in January 2014 were $610,000, with the small proportion of units averaging $380,000 according to Australian Property Monitors.
Blairgowrie has a strong community of permanent residents, with active sports or more relaxed water and beachside activities. The population profile for the area reflects this, with a broad range of semi-retired and younger families calling it home alongside the holidaymakers and small business owners.
The Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron is a particularly vibrant hub within the community. If you’re a golf fan, some of Australia’s best links courses like Moonah Links and The Dunes, as well as many other options only a short drive away.
The area also enjoys dramatic rock, dune and cliff-top scenery along the protected coastal walk and beaches to the South, which connects all of the towns along this part of the peninsula.
The main shopping strip is situated along Point Nepean Road and has become a very popular café and retail destination. Neighbouring areas offer further retail and entertainment options, and with Rye Primary School and other schools within easy driving distance it remains a popular area for families.
