Leisure facilities abound in Doncaster East. Choose from the many sporting clubs and facilities nearby including cricket, football, soccer, hockey, tennis, netball and basketball. Or perhaps take advantage of the nearby Aquarena Aquatic & Leisure Centre on Williamsons Road and the many walking and cycling trails that run along the famous Yarra and Plenty Rivers nearby.
If you enjoy golf, the nearby prestigious Rosanna Golf Club boasts one of the finest course layouts, clubhouses and dining offerings in the area and is a hidden gem at which to relax and unwind.
Green spaces are plentiful. They include the nearby Currawong Bush Park and Mullum Mullum Reserve, as well as the famous Ruffey Lake Park – 68 hectares of inviting, rolling parkland to enjoy. Here you can you see all kinds of wildlife, light up a barbeque and let the kids enjoy playing on the adventure playgrounds.
Should you be looking to even more relaxed interests, Doncaster also has a variety of social clubs, places of worship, learning courses and libraries to enjoy. Nearby is the Heide Museum of Modern Art – a cultural and environmental icon featuring a stunning gallery, sprawling gardens and food to savour at Shannon Bennett’s famous Café Vue. Next door is the Yarra Valley Country Club, perfect for a game of tennis, golf, barefoot bowls or a well priced meal with the family.
You will also appreciate having MC2 (the Manningham City Square Community Centre) only moments away. This community centre brings together a wide range of organisations that focus on health, education, welfare, community, arts, cultural and heritage activities all in the one location.
