The well known history of Underbank as a stud farm is being kept alive and reimagined throughout the landscape and community design.
As a natural environment, this area has thrived for
thousands of years. Now, as it becomes the home of a
new community, the waterways, the plant life and the
unique topography will remain as a key feature of
tomorrow’s Underbank. The masterplan, the individual
houses and the landscapes have been designed to work
in harmony with the unique features of the land.
Rosehill Village Park
The Stage 1 park is now complete, with barbecue facilities, and undercover tables and seating. There’s also a range of children’s play equipment, half-court basketball facility and ‘kickabout’ area. All a part of ensuring our residents are moving into a vibrant community setting..
Unlike many other developments, Underbank boasts a
range of existing natural assets that can be reinvigorated
and incorporated into the new masterplan environment,
enhancing the natural setting for residents.

A rich history. A new chapter.
Unique character and undeniable
charm forms an inspiring backdrop
for the new Underbank.
Underbank has long been remembered as a successful
stud farm. Former stables, fences, trees and parts of the
site’s history are being respectfully incorporated within
the community’s masterplan. New landscape design
elements, from signage to public artworks, will also
draw upon the proud heritage of Underbank. The
original owner of the area known as Underbank was
John Lyle who purchased it in 1864. Three generations
of Lyles would live at the Underbank farm.
More recently as a stud farm, Underbank is remembered
as a place for racehorses to be spelled, the production of
hay, horse agistment and low intensity grazing of other
stock. The most famous name associated with Underbank
is Phar Lap, however, many other champion horses spent
time here, including the two-time Melbourne Cup winner,
Underbank is unlike anywhere else. By drawing on its grand history, reimagining how we live today, and creating an ideal tomorrow – the opportunity is here to be part of its ongoing story.
