As locals, Steve and team have lots of local knowledge, here are a couple of cheeky tips f rom the team…

In some suburbs it can be difficult to find a good pizza, but not here in Balwyn. People travel far and wide to try the authentic Italian menu on offer at Postino on Whitehorse Rd. You can also grab a coffee in their Drive-thru on weekends.

Take the kids on an outdoor adventure at Koonung Creek Reserve . Our local electricians enjoy taking the whole family to walk, cycle and run along paths and boardwalks spanning picturesque wetlands and letting the dog offleash in the wide-open grass areas.
