Some New Records Set in Melbourne’s West

Ardmillan Road and Park Street, in Moonee Ponds, along with nearby Riverview Road in Essendon, and The Strand in Williamstown, are considered Melbourne’s most exclusive streets, west of the Citylink motorway formerly known as the Tullamarine Freeway.

Identities to live in and around these blue-ribbon pockets include ex-footballer turned Planning Minister Justin Madden, and former State Premiers Steve Bracks and Joan Kirner.

The record price for the most expensive house publicly sold “in the west” was set late last year, when a 3500 square metre double-block on The Strand, and at the suburb border of Newport and Williamstown, sold for a reputed $8 million.
