Strathmore is 11 km north-west from the CBD and is partially bordered by Moonee Ponds Creek.
With ease of access to Tullamarine Freeway, which effectively cuts the suburb in two, Strathmore also borders Essendon Airport. Once relatively unknown, Strathmore’s profile has been enhanced considerably following the construction of the Direct Factory Outlet Shopping Complex. Buses, trams and trains service the suburb which has three kindergartens, two primary schools and Strathmore College. Strathmore Village has a range of shops and cafes. You’ll find period homes, renovated homes, stylish contemporary homes, and villa units.
