Innisfail

Innisfail is one of the leading residential developments in the Point Cook region – setting the standard for the many residential communities that have followed in this fast growing area of Victoria.

First designed almost a decade ago, Peet Limited’s Innisfail has continued to evolve and set new standards and trends in residential development for the area.
 
Established on 160 hectares of former pastoral and agricultural land in fast-growing Point Cook, the Innisfail land holding was acquired in 1999. Peet’s vision for Innisfail was to create a modern, liveable community with high-level of onsite amenity, including a shopping centre, sporting ground, two schools, medium-density living options and well-equipped parklands. 
 
Innisfail is now a strong, proud community of singles, couples and families established on more than 2,000 homesites. Residents at Innisfail enjoy a high level of amenity and facilities within the community including schools, childcare, retail and sporting grounds. Perhaps most importantly, they are a very engaged community with a strong sense of identity.

Environmental commitment

Innisfail has also led the way in sustainable development through the opening Victoria’s first HIA-GreenSmart accredited display village, with the homes all achieving a minimum 5-star energy rating prior to that becoming a mandatory requirement. The estate also incorporates a raft of sustainable and environmentally design features, including a network of path and cycle ways that encourage social interaction and healthy living.

Design features

Featuring Traditional Neighbourhood Design and New Urbanist principles, Peet and its specialist team has achieved a thriving, sustainable community whose design and development includes:
  • a diverse range of lot sizes to accommodate a variety of household and family types attracting a more diverse mix of people with a variety of budgets – from first home owners looking for affordable product to upgraders and investors;
  • the introduction of small lot product with rear laneways to the region;
  • sporting, arts and science precincts with themed nomenclature of famous Australians for streets, parks and reserves;
  • a state and private school within the community with shared facilities including sporting grounds and a Council oval;
  • a community sports pavilion;
  • two retail centres including an IGA; 7-Eleven and a range of other stores;
  • an interconnected street network, themed precincts and key landmarks providing legibility and permeability, particularly for pedestrians and cyclists to move throughout the neighbourhood and specifically to central facilities;
  • excellent connectivity with easy links to public transport (including a bus route through the community); regional shopping and other facilities at Werribee, Hoppers Crossing and Sanctuary Lakes; and the Princes Freeway which takes residents through to the Melbourne CBD around 25 kilometres away;
  • innovative and quality landscaping. The landscaping along Boardwalk Boulevard through the centre of Innisfail has been extended beyond the estate and now reflects Peet’s planting palette and density;
  • networks of open space with water sensitive landscaping that creates a new "natural" environment on once heavily used farming land, attracting native fauna and meeting the social and recreational needs of the community; and
  • public and private open spaces that have been designed and constructed to use water efficiently, such as the construction of water storage tanks beneath the sports grounds to store recycled A-class water for irrigation purposes; the use of low-water use native plantings and the establishment of rain gardens; and the issuing of a "Flying Start" package including a waterwise landscaping package to establish and promote waterwise gardening to purchasers in the early stages.

Awards

Winner – Urban Development Institute of Australia (Victoria) Judges’ Award, 2010
 
“A high degree of commitment by the developer to create a strong sense of community has been achieved through the provision of a number of good quality amenities, including sporting facilities, schools, shopping, transport and childcare all within reach of residents.  This will be realised over time as infrastructure is completed.  There is a strong focus on community development and the master planning efforts to ensure the estate’s amenities are in walking distance to all residents.  A wide range of lot sizes and prices has provided accessibility to a wide target audience, predominantly in the greater Western area.  The overall result is a well planned development which is worthy of the Judges Award.”   UDIA Judges, 2010 Awards for Excellence
