Main Street of Sunbury from across the road.

The Post Shop from across the corner.

Hanging around the auto teller machines.

This is taken down the main street of Sunbury.

The train station in the centre of town.

The ducks at the Rupertwood mansion lake.

The Nook, one of the Sunbury parks, clean and tidy!

The local cop shop, where they will laugh when you come in and ask to be fingerprinted for your SA passport renewal!

Very nice Mara, it all looks so clean and tidy.

I google earthed the area and it look a long way from the city to me, what is the traveling time to the city centre? it will give me an idea of scale.

PS I love the Reject Shop! I can't wait to go driving through Sunbury now. That CTY shop's clothes also look really nice... Everything looks new and sparkly and well-taken care of.

I think Mara said the train takes bout 30-40 minutes to get to the CBD?

Thank you Mara,

Will definately make time to explore Sunbury once we're settled in Melbourne.

On my LSD trip to Melbourne in September this year, I came home with over 800 photos! My friend said I look like a Chinese tourist and the paparazzi taking photos of everything I laid my eyes on! Beautiful city and I know my family will be happy in Melbourne.

Well I like it, close enough to the city for anything you wish to do there, yet country enough that you can live at peace with the world!

Travel time to the city by train is approximately 35 mins. Travel time to the airport is around 20 mins. Travel time to the city by car in off peak, about 40 mins. Travel time by car to the city in peak, about an hour, as long as there is no hold up anywhere!

Hi all, glad you liked the photos!

AllisonW, I am sure you would also grow to love our country dorp, next door to the 'big smoke'!

Philipp and Lana, what a co-incidence, lived 10 years of my life in Witbank, mostly in Ext 10, Duncan Street.

Gosh those photos all look so familiar!

On my last visit to Melbourne we wandered around Sunbury, found it to be a very neat & pleasant town. We liked it.

Hope you had fun taking these pictures, Mara, thanks.

Didn't you get that couple that had been married forever to pose for a picture?

What is the population? The town I am moving to has 12,000 people so I am trying to get a comparison.

Thanks,

Liesl

So we drove to Sunbury over the weekend. What a beautiful town! Loved it a lot. It is just quite a distance from the CBD.

These pics are of the Tullamarine highway on the way to Sunbury as well as some of the farmlands, etc. Reminded me a little of the 'kleinhoewes' around Centurion.

DFO is similar to the UFO stores in RSA
