Award-winning
developer moves
intoMelbourne’s
booming west
Dacland, a family
company making
a big impact on
Melbourne’s newest
neighbourhoods,
has ventured into
the booming west
with three signature
projects.
“We pride ourselves
on creating real
communities, not
just selling blocks
of land.We create
communities
where people feel
connected.”
Dacland Managing Director,
John Dwyer
“The company has
grown by responding
to consumer needs,
aspirations and
expectations.”

King’s Leigh, a flagship Dacland
community designed to set
new standards for residential
development inWerribee, is
underway with stage one and
stage two creating a lot of interest.
Wynbrook, designed with
aspirational first-home buyers
in mind, will promote a sense of
safety and seclusion, yet is just 27
minutes from the CBD and ideally
positioned to take advantage of
all Wyndham has to offer.
Rothwell, the final community
to be released, will comprise
1,600 homes in Truganina and
Tarneit and is Dacland’s largest
development to date.
Established in 1999 by John
(Jack) Dwyer Snr., a businessman
with a talent for property and
a keen understanding of how
families want to live, Dacland has
gone from strength to strength. At
the heart of its operations is the
idea of “a real sense of place”.
“We pride ourselves on creating
real communities, not just selling
blocks of land. We create communi-
ties where people feel connected,”
said Managing Director John Dwyer.
“The company has grown by
responding to consumer needs,
aspirations and expectations.
“It’s a simple idea,” he said, “but
important to get right. That’s why
we pay keen attention to detail
and know our industry and the
needs of home buyers inside out.”
Dacland communities are
designed to enhance the natural
environment with abundant
parks, open space, and places
for active and passive recreation.
“This encourages residents to
create a healthy lifestyle and also
invites people to socialise and to
meet the neighbours,” John said.
Respect for the environment is a
Dacland principle that was praised
by the judges who awarded the
company first prize in the presti-
gious UDIA awards for Mitchell’s
Run at Doreen, north of the city.
Mitchell’s Run is a 650-lot
development that blends stylish
living with the natural features
and beauty of the surrounding
area. Undulating landscape,
waterways and expansive views
of the ranges all contribute to
making it an enviable place to live.
In presenting the award, the
judges called Mitchell’s Run an
“outstanding project that, now
matured, has realised its project
vision with an emphasis on embrac-
ing the natural landscape character.”
“Dacland was committed to
the retention of River Red Gums
and other vegetation of national
significance with impressive
aesthetic outcomes,” the judges said.
No home at Mitchell’s Run is more
than 300 metres from parks or open
space and blocks range in size from
300 to over 600 square metres.
Strict design guidelines and
master planning ensure that
Mitchell’s Run is not only an
aesthetically cohesive neighbour-
hood and an excellent place to
raise a family, but is also a sound
investment with strong returns
for buyers. Implementing quality
design guidelines is a key focus for

all Dacland projects, giving residents
a sense of comfort about the look
of their future neighbourhood.
Dacland’s attention to streetscape
aesthetics and the landscaping of
parks and open space sets it commu-
nities apart from others. Werribee’s
King’s Leigh, for example, is designed
to see mature trees flanking wide
avenues and will create an almost
instant leafy green atmosphere.
When designing its communities
Dacland ensures tranquility,
privacy and family safety. Houses
in quiet avenues, cul de sacs
and crescents, and nearby parks
and facilities are all part of
Dacland’s meticulous planning.
