Our History

Our story begins in the late 1980s when a group of young men formed syndicates to develop residential subdivisions in and around Bendigo. They were ambitious but not foolhardy, moving purposely but cautiously into the world of residential development.

Today, we’re proud to have helped over 6,000 families establish a new home in one of our communities. We also look to the future with great optimism, as our current land bank contains over 19,000 lots Australia-wide. That means more Australians who will get to lead a rich, fulfilling and connected life in a Villawood community.


It’s About Life

Life that’s not just lived but celebrated with abundance and joy.

A life with parks and playgrounds and residents’ clubs with swimming pools and trees and colourful sculptural things that make you feel happy just because they are there.

With beautiful homes and neighbours that are friends. The things you need close by to make life easier. Community, real community. That everyone works to build, and everyone belongs. Where everything comes together to positively impact every part of your wellbeing.

Because there’s nothing more precious, this life of ours. It’s why we do what we do, to cherish it, so that you can too.

2024 marks 35 years of excellence.

From the humble beginnings of a group of friends pooling their life savings into a subdivision in Bendigo in 1989, Villawood Properties has grown to become one of Australia’s leading land developers – recognised, trusted and awarded.

There’s been much to celebrate over the last 35 years.

In 2009, there was The Nature of Villawood, which highlighted our focus on nurturing and rehabilitating the strikingly beautiful ecosystems within its communities.

Then in 2014, 25 Years – Real Stories, Real Communities marked our coming of age as Australia’s foremost community developer, noting its players and initiatives, its creativity and breakthrough designs.

Our last publication, simply titled 30, we took these themes further and celebrate the stories of the everyday people living in our wonderful communities and those who helped us make it all happen.

These are the stories people relate about just what Villawood does and how it’s affected their lives, their homes and their families.

We invite you to explore the first chapters of “30” simply by clicking through below.

Stay tuned for our upcoming installment to commemorate and celebrate our 35 years of excellence.
