Pakenham is an emerging south eastern suburb of Melbourne. The town planners have thought carefully about the design of the region. The more modern parts of Pakenham house shopping precincts that provide restaurants, cafes and shops. There is also a commercial park that has Bunnings, Office Works, BCF, fitness centre and JB Hi-fi to name a few. There are sporting facilities and a lake. A great place for young families.
