Yes I am still around. Haven't been on much as not a lot going on. Still waiting on the land to be finished in the estate. It was majorly delayed and now they are up to putting in the footpaths and crossovers.
Our block has about 800mm of fall over a span of 23meters... So when you look at it, there isn't much of a slope.
I love bacchus marsh. It is what Werribee was around 10-15 years ago. Calm, quieter and much nicer. If you need all the amenities that are in Caroline springs then going to bacchus might not be right for you.. Where as I like the town.
The next stage seems like it has some pretty good blocks. Maybe go out and visit. They will be putting up a shopping centre right next door to the essence estate. But I think it would take maybe a year or so.
