From the outset, Jacksons Hill was designed to create an enjoyable lifestyle whilst keeping the environment in mind.

There are now more than 3,000 people living in Jacksons Hill, on tree-lined streets among large areas of parkland, with nearby schools and shops, and improved access to Melbourne via the electrified Sunbury railway line.

The unique hilltop location of Jacksons Hill provides exceptional views of the Melbourne city skyline to the Macedon Ranges and overlooks Sunbury's vineyards.

Innovation and awards

Jacksons Hill was named the 2008 Best Master Planned Community in Australia by the Property Council of Australia.

Jacksons Hill was also the first development of its kind in Australia in the late 1990s to provide a 22-home solar precinct incorporating 4 star homes, gas-boosted solar hot water systems, and surplus energy back into the grid.

The rehabilitation of Wanginu Park received the Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture Land Management Award in 2013.


The Jacksons Hill development is located 2km south of the Sunbury train station.

 Development Victoria acknowledges the Wurundjeri people as the Traditional Custodians of the land.
