Located 23 kilometres east of Melbourne CBD in the City of Maroondah, Ringwood is a suburban centre in transition.

A priority of the Victorian Government’s blueprint for Melbourne’s growth, Ringwood is a designated Metropolitan Activity Centre - the highest priority centres outside of the CBD. 

Strategically located at the epicentre of a superb network of major arterial roads and transport nodes, Ringwood benefits from unsurpassed metropolitan road and rail connections, services a large catchment of Melbourne’s eastern growth corridor, and is the gateway to the Yarra Valley – Victoria’s hero food and wine destination.

The key Metropolitan Activity Centre in Melbourne’s outer east, Ringwood is now the focus of significant public and private investment, employment growth and renewal. Investment in integrated and sustainable development around first class transport services will position Ringwood as a key new urban destination with a vibrant city centre, active local economy and contemporary lifestyle options.
