    We are here in Williams Landing. A new suburb opposite Point Cook. We are just 800m away from the soon to open Williams Landing Train Station. We are 19km away from CBD, kung walang traffic. :-). We love the new place. We are excited about the soon to construct shopping centre adjacent to WL train station. According to some press release,this will be the focal point of Western area. :-)

    Hi @vangievc - I heard from forums that internet is a bit slow in the Point Cook area... :) is this by any chance true?

    @Yukishih: You're place is 15 minutes away from ours. We're here in the leafy suburb of Rosanna. :) May mga Pinoy ba dyan sa area nyo? Here kasi parang bihira ang Pinoy... :-S

    @Yukishih: Dito naman sa area namin mostly mga Italian migrants kaya medyo feeling isolated. :| If you want and if you have time, we can meet up sometime for coffee and friendly chat... :)

    @Metaform: Collingwood is near the city so expect that house rental is quite higher than those houses in suburbs not-so-near sa city. It's four train stops away from Flinders station via Hurstbridge line -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collingwood,_Victoria :)
