Which Melbourne suburbs have the best primary schools?


Whether you’re a property buyer or investor, when you’re looking for a new property there are so many things to consider.

Sure, the location, amenities, and transport are important factors that affect a property’s value.

But, did you know that state school zoning can also have a huge impact on local property prices?

That’s because some people are willing to pay a significant premium to be located within some primary and secondary school zones.

In Melbourne, competition for places in preferred school zones has pushed property prices sky-high.

And with elite private schools around the country costing parents up to (or in excess of) $30,000 per year, per child, it’s understandable that top-performing public schools are in high demand.


According to Domain Group’s latest 2021 School Zones Report, house prices have risen across most of Melbourne’s school zones, up in 83% of primary and 89% of secondary schools, aligning with the rising property market.

While the top school catchment zones were spread across inner, middle and outer suburbs and across a variety of different price points, a number that topped the list favoured the lifestyle location of Mornington Peninsula.

Interestingly, house price growth varied between neighbouring school zones.

For example, house prices in the Brighton Primary School zone increased 11% annually, while the neighbouring school zone of Elsternwick Primary School dropped 15%.

The report also reveals that annual house price growth in 48% of the primary and 52% of secondary school zones analysed surpassed the respective suburb price growth, with most seeing up to 10% more growth compared to the suburb they are located in.

Here are the high school and primary school catchment areas which have come out on top for Melbourne.
