There is also a shopping centre, Caroline Springs Square, which includes a Coles supermarket and a number of specialty stores. The West Waters 5 star Hotel and Entertainment Complex features a gaming room and sports bar.

Kororoit Creek winds its way through the centre of the suburb and provides some wonderful wildlife to study.

caroline springs Income & Mortgage Stats

To calculate the percentage of income paid towards a mortgage for the suburb of Melbourne, multiply the mortgage payment (e.g. $2450) by 12 then divide this figure by the weekly income (e.g. $1200) multiplied by 52 (weeks) to look like this ($2450 x12/$1200 x 52) x 100 = 47%

Any figure above 30% usually indicates that the suburb you intend to buy in may have property owners with a high incidence of mortgage stress. In terms of maintaining or growing property values in the future and trying to secure a strong property price when selling, this could have an impact, especially in an economic or local industry downturn.
