Home in Boronia, 20 miles to Melbourne via train - Victoria

Brick veneer house with remote gated entry, house alarm, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, in a quiet area near to foot of the Dandenongs (hills). Boronia is 20 miles from Melbourne city with both bus and train stations nearby. While a car is not necessarily needed for most people, my car is included in an exchange and I would appreciate the use of a car wherever I go.

Pay t.v., wireless NBN internet is available. I take my laptop with me, so whoever comes to stay would need to bring their own laptop/ipad.

In early October 2014, I stayed with a lovely lady in Nottingham for two weeks before she went on holiday for the third week, then I stayed in her house on my own, and we became good friends.

From October 2014 - March 2019, I had an ongoing exchange in Scotland for 5-6 months each year, where I stayed from end of October to mid-end April each year. These lovely people found my house in Boronia to be located in a very handy position to bus, trains and shops and enjoyed their stays.

As I will hopefully again be returning to Scotland at the end of February 2023 for the month of March, I would like to hear from anyone interested in coming to Melbourne around the end of March 2023 as I would appreciate a further exchange anywhere in the UK after the end of March for any time up to 6 months.

Thank you,


About the location

While I have ticked golfing and tennis as activities in my area, I personally do not participate in either. I believe one can play golf at the nearby golf course/s without being a member but I`m not sure about the tennis club, which is only `just around the corner` from my house.

There are a variety of restaurants in Boronia and also in the surrounding areas. Boronia also has a Cinema, gyms and swimming pool.
