Eynesbury is a new township located 40 kilometres west of Melbourne between the growth areas of Werribee and Melton. The historic property is the largest parcel of land in one ownership in the region.
Tract was commissioned by Woodhouse Pastoral Co. to co-ordinate the rezoning of a 1300ha area, within the broader 7400 hectare rural landholding. This will allow a unique township and integrated recreation development, with the remainder to be used for agricultural purposes. The development has become a joint venture between the pastoral company and MFS Diversified.
The 2900 home township has a sustainability focus and is based on ‘New Urbanist principles. It features:
- A town centre incorporating: retail, commercial, education and civic facilities
- Championship golf course and hotel/conference facility opens 2007
- Equestrian centre and trails
- Extensive open space corridors, trail system, creeks and wetlands
- Preservation of adjacent State significant grasslands and Grey Box Forest
- Water recycling (Class A and C)
The centerpiece of the first stages of the township is the Eynesbury Golf Course and clubhouse facilities, focussed on the historic homestead.
The grassy woodland-style course is set amongst existing windrows and features a generous shared path and open space system that services future residential stages with linkages back to the homestead facilities.
The golf course and associated facilities opened in May 2007, with the first residents moving in two years later. By 2015, ove one-thousand families will call Eynesbury home.
Tract continues to provide planning and landscape architectural services for this innovative township, translating the overall masterplan and vision into an ‘on ground’ development.
