Worst suburbs in Melbourne?

I have some friends looking to relocate from overseas and they asked what suburbs they should avoid. I said we really don't have ghettos like they might in parts of the USA, that most suburbs are safe compared to overseas.

Any places you would avoid?

Not sure why but Dandenong always seems to get a mention. High unemployment, high crime.
