DIVERSITY OF HOUSING
Set to become the biggest community in the South East of Melbourne, Orana will comprise more than 4,000 homes.
Future residents can choose from vacant land, house-and-land packages and townhomes.
Balcon Group is very proud to be Victoria’s first masterplanned community to commit to the Homes for Homes initiative, donating 0.1 per cent of each registered sale to help build homes for those in need.
SHOPPING, DINING AND ENTERTAINMENT
A defining feature of Orana will be its mixed-use local town centre.
The walkable Orana Town Centre will be the heart of the community, more than just a place to do the weekly supermarket shopping.
PARKS & NATURE
There will be more green space at Orana than at Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens.
Orana’s 42 hectares of parks and waterways will comprise six local parks, three wetland reserves and several playing fields.
Orana, in Clyde North, is well connected into the surrounding transport network and to local services and facilities.
Road connections, local bus services and bike paths will connect Orana to surrounding suburbs.
Enjoy easy connection to major freeways including the Monash Freeway, Eastlink, South Gippsland Highway and the Mornington Peninsula Freeway.

Keeping active and well will be simpler at Orana, where shops, schools and parks are all within easy walking or cycling distance from home.
People of all ages and abilities will be able to ride or walk safe from traffic along a network of tree-lined paths, inspired by the world’s best cycling cities such as Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
Early delivery of community services and facilities, including the Orana Community Place in Stage 1, will help build strong social connections.
Orana will be a culturally diverse community, celebrating its diversity through the arts.
Arts and culture feature in all parts of community life at Orana. This will include arts-based events and festivals, which will create opportunities for local and emerging artists to contribute to the rich tapestry of the Orana creative community.

At Orana, the key principles of sustainability have influenced all aspects of the design of this masterplanned community.
Orana has attained the maximum 6-Leaf EnviroDevelopment sustainability accreditation with the Urban Development Institute of Australia.
The EnviroDevelopment 6-Leaf accreditation acknowledges Orana’s excellence across six key principles of sustainability for both the development and operational phases of the Orana community’s establishment.
The City of Casey is an established centre of excellence in education.
Orana will be home to its own pre-school and government primary school, with new independent and government P-12 schools located in new developments adjoining Orana.
Orana is located in the City of Casey, one of the fastest growing municipalities in Australia, known for its world-class infrastructure.
Casey is also one of Melbourne’s most liveable cities, a dynamic hub that continues to attract investment, creating a broad range of job opportunities for Orana residents.
Eight major commercial/industrial precincts are developing within the city. The nearby Officer South Employment Precinct, of state significance, will occupy an area of more than 1,000 hectares and become a regional destination for local business and employment.
