"Lovely quiet suburb"

We moved to Dingley from Brighton East, we thought we were downgrading but we much prefer it here! The neighbours are friendlier, you can actually get a car spot down at the local shops and even just in the year that we've been here we've seen a dramatic improvement in the shops. There is no train station but to me that is a bit of a positive too as there are no 'undesirables' from other suburbs passing through. I actually feel much safer in Dingley than I did in Brighton East and the houses are half the price here! This is definitely not the kind of suburb that has a lot going on but if you're like us and enjoy peace, quiet and feeling safe then I'd definitely recommend Dingley Village.

"A real 'village' feel"

I've been in Melbourne since 2005 originally living in Springvale South. We moved to Dingley a couple of years ago and haven't regretted it. After travelling through neighbouring areas, you can really feel the difference when you come into Dingley. Most houses are well kept, the streets are nice and wide and people are very friendly. It's close to the beach and some great shopping. Primary schools are well catered for and of high quality shown by the fact that families from neighbouring suburbs are trying to enrol their children here but now can't due to popularity. Houses are going up in value but not complete out of the reach yet. Can see myself living in Dingley for a long time to come.
Pros
  • Safe for kids to play
  • Community atmosphere

  • Horrible public transport

"Dingley Village"

I bought a house in Dingley 18 years ago and it is the best place i have ever lived. I have lived all over australia almost. In Dingley it is a peaceful area and most people are great. We have my friends over for dinner have a great time and there are no parties that keep you up in the early days of the next morning. Parking takes less than a second to find and you can be sure to find your car exactly where you left it. Shops arund the corner shopping centers close by what more you want!!

"Lovely open spaces and friendly neighbourhood"

I live here with my young family. There are lots of big houses on big blocks. Lots of sporting clubs, parks and the beach 15 mins away. There is Parkmore, DFO Moorabbin, Southland and Chadstone within 5-20 mins away. A real friendly community feeling, there is a local "dingley dossier" produced every month. Be careful where you buy/rent as some areas are near the nursery landfills (smell) and light aircraft fly over some areas (noise). No high schools but plenty in surrounding suburbs. No nightlife at all. The shopping area is under plans and permits to rebuild.

"Nice Place But Not Much To Do"

It's a nice place but there is nothing to do when your young which leads to trouble. That is why there are so many teenagers hanging around the milk bar, football club and bus stops. Very nice houses increasing in value everyday.

"Quite Friendly Neighborhood."

I've lived in Dingley since I was born and think it's been a fantastic place to grow up. It has a real family feel to it which connects the whole town together. You can't go down to the shops without seeing a familiar face which is a rarity in a suburban town. I couldn't think of a better place to buy.

"A great area for families"

This is a nice area close to a number of beaches and major shopping centres. The downside for those working in the city would be it is starting to get a bit too far out for some.
The major shops close by include Southland and Chadstone so if you can’t get it around the corner its only going to be 10 minutes away.
There are some good schools in the area, and depending on where you are they may be within walking distance making it ideal for families. On top of this kindergartens and childcare are close by.
There are some good parks in the area including a great playground and for those with young kids you’ll know how important that is.
While there are buses and trains to service the area, the public transport coverage isn’t as good as some areas close to the city. The up side is there isn’t the same noise.
