Development Victoria

A thriving community in the north

Aurora

Building a community

Development Victoria developed the master plan for Aurora, which involved extensive stakeholder engagement with a strong focus on community development and securing essential community infrastructure. 

Aurora is now home to over 2000 people, and has grown into a thriving community serviced by a new primary school and childcare centre, community tennis court, café, general store, and the Creeds Farm Living and Learning Centre, which includes a community garden and neighbourhood house.

Aurora Town Centre

Development Victoria is managing the ongoing development of the Aurora Town Centre, including managing investment attraction, planning approvals and overseeing construction.

The first stage of the town centre is now complete, and includes a new Coles supermarket, specialty shops and car parking.

The Galada Community Centre, which includes three kindergarten rooms, a community hall and a maternal and child health centre, was completed in 2015 and benefits a wide section of the community from babies and young families to senior citizens.

Innovation and awards

Aurora was Victoria’s first 6-star energy efficient community. New homes at Aurora are have been designed for maximum comfort and energy efficiency, and include:

  • Solar hot water
  • 4 and 5-star heating, cooling and appliances
  • AAA-efficient water fixtures
  • Pipes to receive recycled water to wash clothes, flush toilets and water gardens, resulting in the use of 45 per cent less water compared to the average home
  • Aurora was instrumental in the development of an industry-wide Sustainable Community Rating tool, which was developed in partnership with the Urban Development Institute of Australia, the Property Council of Australia and the Municipal Association of Victoria.
