About the district / neighbourhood Lynbrook in Melbourne
The suburb was developed by VicUrban, starting in 1994. A special feature of the VicUrban development is the stormwater catchment which flows into the lake and wetlands where it is purified before being released into Dandenong Creek and into Port Phillip Bay.
Prior to 1994, the area now occupied by Lynbrook was part of Lyndhurst.
There are two primary schools, one State and one Catholic. There is a central shopping center with Coles and a range of strip shops with take away food and eateries, a gym, medical center, pharmacy, news agency, butcher, bakery, and hair and beauty. There is also a Community Center, child care centers, vet, kindergarten and maternal child health nurse.
Lynbrook has a local resident's group, the Lynbrook Residents Association (LRA), who advocate to Local, State and Federal Government on behalf of residents with local issues. They also host a number of Community Events to bring the community together to create a sense of belonging and community in Lynbrook.
