The suburb is surrounded by farmland and includes the expansive, forested Greenbank Military Camp. Comprising only a few streets and set among the gumtrees, this suburb has a charming rural feel. Many homesteads have magnificent rural views, dams, swimming pools and large decks that make them perfect for entertaining friends. A strip of parkland runs right through the middle of the residential part of Greenbank, on either side of a small watercourse. A bike path, which extends along its length, connects up with neighbouring Boronia Heights. While facilities may be limited, the kids should never be bored as this is a great area for exploring, riding dirt bikes and ponies.
