Millingandi Real Estate Snapshot

Millingandi Why live in Millingandi? History Millingandi is a rural area located at the far end of Back Lake. The area stretches from Merimbula Drive to Pambula. Millingandi is part of the area belonging to the Thaua people. The Thaua people occupied land from south of Wallagoot Lake to Greencape and inland to the escarpment of the Great Divide. There were two groups of Thaua; the Katungal or sea coast people and Baianbal or Paienbara, the inland tomahawk people. Both tribes belonged to the Yuin cultural area. After European settlement Millingandi was farming land. The construction of the Merimbula bypass through Millingandi divided the land and smaller parcels of land were subdivided. Millingandi is now an area of small rural acreage with larger lifestyle blocks available further inland. The land to the north, northeast of the highway overlooks or backs onto the Back Lake. Land on the southern or western side has views over Back Lake, Merimbula and Fishpen area. Real Estate & Design The development of Millingandi remains an ongoing process. As land becomes available, modern contemporary style houses are being constructed. Houses on sites further inland tend to reflect a more rustic style, often constructed from timber, mud bricks or straw bale. The area behind Pambula along the Bald Hills Road has seen heavy development over the past years and a wide range of housing has been constructed. This has become an area where large, executive style homes have been built to take advantage of ocean or rural views. The advantage and appeal of this area is the close proximity of a five minute drive to either Merimbula or Pambula, acreage sized sections and views.
