The eastern suburbs of Melbourne include Knox, Boroondara, Maroondah, Manningham, Whitehorse and Yarra Ranges. These neighbourhoods host a higher average age of residents than the city itself - this is because there are several retirement villages in the Eastern Suburbs. This whole vicinity is known for having lovely, green surroundings; it doesn’t feel like you’re in a city at all. The Dandenong Ranges are only a short drive away for those who wish to get away for a hike while in the area.

Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
