Cardinia Lakes

Peet Limited’s Cardinia Lakes development at Pakenham received the Residential Development Award (over 250 lots) - in the Urban Development Institute of Australia's 2012 Awards for Excellence.

Cardinia Lakes offers relaxed living for the 700 households that call the community home. Residents enjoy lakeside living with many homes within walking distance of the lakes and the beautifully landscaped parklands, connected by interlinked pedestrian and cycling pathways.


Enjoy lakefront living at its finest. At the heart of Cardinia Lakes is the stunning lakes precinct, with serene parklands and open space to explore. Eastone Lake and Cooks Spring Reserve create the perfect backdrop with views overlooking the community and beyond. 

The lakes precinct creates the ideal place to bring this tight-knit community together, with barbeque and picnic facilities, two look-outs, and beautifully landscaped areas perfect for entertaining with friends, family and neighbours.


With 18 hectares of open space you will never be short of an area to explore - landscaped walkways, recreation and picnic areas give you space to move, relax and play. The open space includes a landscaped amphitheatre, kilometres of walking and cycling trails, and a variety of exercise stations for an active lifestyle.


Cardinia Lakes Village at the entrance to the community includes a townhouse precinct and Cardinia Lakes Shopping Centre, with a Coles supermarket, cafe, pharmacy and mixed retail outlets for everyday shopping needs. When complete the Village will also feature a new childcare centre, a community centre, a primary school, plus an additional suite of residential townhouses, offices and retail outlets.
