Bloomdale can be conveniently accessed from the Calder Freeway via the second Diggers Rest exit, or just as easily reached from the south via Plumpton Road and from the north via Vineyard Road. Under 45 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD by car and under 25 minutes from Melbourne Airport by car, Bloomdale is well connected.
When you’d rather not drive, Bloomdale is only 2kms from the new Diggers Rest Station on the Sunbury line, which operates full Metro services running every 12 minutes during the morning and evening peak periods. Buses run daily with route 483 connecting Diggers Rest to both Sunbury and Moonee Ponds.
