Berwick is under an hour from Melbourne’s CBD, making it easy to commute for work, or stay connected to the buzz of the city. At the same time, all the everyday conveniences are right on your doorstep, including shops, eateries, schools, and medical facilities.

Historic charm, yet close to the CBD

Berwick is located 47 kilometres southeast of the Melbourne CBD, and makes for an easy commute. Drive to the city in about 45 minutes via the Monash Freeway (M1), or take a 56-minute train ride from Beaconsfield Station, which is around 3.5 kilometres from Minta Estate.

The charming suburb of Berwick has agricultural roots, with a rich history of vegetable farming that dates back to the mid-19th century. Today, it’s a vibrant, multicultural suburb, but its history can still be seen in its delightful town centre, with village-like streets, historic buildings, and manicured gardens.

An easy commute

Main roads, train and bus services are all easily accessible from Minta Estate in Berwick, making it easy to get around or commute to work in the city.

Access to the Monash Freeway (M1) is nearby, and an on-ramp within the estate is currently under construction – something you won’t find in many other estates in the region.

Beaconsfield Station is 3.5 kilometres from Minta, which takes you direct to Flinders Station. There are also bus routes nearby.

Shops & eateries at your fingertips

Berwick is a long-established suburb, which means it offers everything you need from the day you move in, with a plethora of great shops, markets, cafes and restaurants on your doorstep.

The heart of the town is Old Berwick, which boasts boutiques, cafes, supermarkets, doctors and dentists.

The area also holds regular markets; shop for local produce or handmade goods at The Old Cheese Factory’s farmers markets and craft markets, peruse over 350 stalls at the weekly Akoonah Park markets, or head here to enjoy the Berwick Show – the area’s popular agricultural show, held annually since 1891.

For an all-under-one-roof retail fix, visit Eden Rise Shopping Centre, just 2.7 kilometres from Minta, which houses supermarkets, cafes, and specialty stores, as well as beauty salons, exercise studios, and hairdressers. 


It’s easy to see why the southeastern suburb of Berwick is so popular with families – there’s a raft of impressive schools nearby, a major shopping centre, and an abundance of open, green spaces, so you can get out and get active.
