Lower Plenty

Lower Plenty - A Perfect Blend of Modern Life and Nature

Lower Plenty is a scenic Melbourne suburb located just 20 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD.  Formerly a part of Eltham, the town gets its name from the Lower Plenty Toll Bridge, which was built in the 1860s to collect toll from vehicles moving across the Plenty River.  It belongs to the local government area of the City of Banyule and has a population of approximately 4,000.  It is bounded by the intersection of the Plenty River (which closes its eastern flank) and the Yarra River (which closes its southern flank).

The area is classified as a low-density urban suburb and contains large expanses of unfettered ecosystems.  Within the vicinity are easily accessible trails and hiking paths like the Main Yarra Trail and the Plenty River Trail, which can bring people closer to nature without being too far from the city.  It is a perfect marriage between convenience and delightful suburban ambience.
