Berwick is a Victorian suburb situated in Melbourne, approximately 41km south-east from the city’s central business district. The region is named after the historic town of Berwick-on-Tweed in Northumberland, England.
Initial subdivision in the area began in 1854. Once a small farming town, the city saw incredible growth in the late 20th century, attracting first-home buyers and small families throughout the 1990s and 2000s. Today, Berwick has a population of more than 47,600 people.
While the suburb retains some of its original charm, it is now a busy suburban area bustling with cafes, libraries, restaurants, sporting clubs, community centres, and plenty of things to see and do. Getting around is easy with trains regularly travelling to and from Melbourne City and reliable local bus services.
For young families looking for early education services, Berwick is an excellent choice. There are more than 75 childcare services available within 6km of the suburb, offering centre-based care, long daycare, family daycare, occasional care, and out of school hours care.
Berwick is a great choice for sports lovers, with a successful cricket club, an Australian Rules football team, a golf club, badminton, softball, and Little Athletics available.
