Diggers Rest

Diggers Rest is a beautiful town of less than 3000 people within the outer metropolitan area of Melbourne, mostly developed in the 1970s but now being expanded again with some beautiful new sprawl.

Melbourne Airport is only 15 minutes drive away from here, and many flights taking off to the west get a birds eye view of this town :yes:

Until the last few years housing was still affordable in this town, but has risen sharply in the last few years. Crime is low to moderate.
