Ringwood is a great eastern suburb of Melbourne. Ringwood has many parks and reserves, most notably, Ringwood Lake.
Great shopping is on offer in the Ringwood shopping centre. If you are looking at dining out there are some great hidden gems in the area that only locals know about.
When Ringwood was being planned they decided to leave lots of native corridors for native animals. Small creeks in the areas also attract wildlife as they provide food and water.
While these areas provide rest sites for native animals, pests are attracted to the area for similar reasons.
