suburb approximately twenty kilometers southeast
Springvale is a semi-industrial area, home to many Asian immigrants and a number of government housing buildings. Not considered one of the most picturesque suburbs of Melbourne.
Perhaps its only claims to fame are the Sandown International Motor raceway and the fact that the pop group, TISM claim to reside there.
Update: With the release of their album, DeRigeurmortis, TISM now appear to claim to hail from Rowville, which is a similarly nondescript and average suburb of Melbourne.
