The Minta Farm precinct is located approximately 45 kilometres southeast of the Melbourne Central Business District in the City of Casey. The Princes Freeway generally bounds the precinct to the northeast, Cardinia Creek to the east, Grices Road to the south and Soldiers Road to the west.
Minta Farm will include a mix of employment and residential land. The precinct is strategically positioned adjacent to the Princes Freeway with a direct connection proposed through a future upgrade to the Beaconsfield interchange and O’Shea Road. Also, the precinct’s workforce and residents will be supported by close connectivity to the Beaconsfield Train Station and Melbourne’s metropolitan railway line.
