"Best part of Melbourne and surrounds"

I absolutely LOVE Mt Eliza.

The first time I drove through the village I fell in love with the vibe.

Driving around the streets I knew this is where I want to live as it felt safe and is beautiful.

Once I saw Kunyung Primary School and its view out over the bay I started making plans to move to the area so my child could go to this amazing school.

Mt Eliza has the best of both worlds. It has amazing beaches and also great woodlands with lots of wildlife all with being easy driving distant to CBD.

So glad to now call Mt Eliza home.

eliza19k Disagree with you on Kunyung Primary. The only good thing about that school is the view. Has the highest turnover rate of the local primary schools and a socially disastrous multi-age system, among many other issues. Mount Eliza North very highly regarded locally with a big waiting list and justifiably. Agree with you on everything else though... stop telling everyone!

"One of the most underrated gems on the Mornington Peninsula"

Having lived here for almost a quarter of my lifetime, Mt Eliza will almost always be home to my schooling and childhood.

The suburb is quite underrated compared to the more notable big hitters Sorrento and Portsea. There are excellent schools within the area. I went to Mt Eliza Primary School and the state scedonary scool along Canadian Bay road. For girls, Toorak College is a consistent performer alongside the more notable Peninsula School. I went to the local kinder too- fond memories

The Village is very quiet and peaceful- perfect ofr a short stroll or a bite to eat.

People are friendly and delightful- although late last year at the local newsagent, for the very first time in my life, I met a woman who was quite, well, dare I say it, both inconsiderate and childish. But that was just only one person- 99% of the people within this area are lovely and delightful!

I still try to make up lost time with some old school chums every now and then- althought they have gone their seperate ways.

Houses are a mixture but for the very best one needs to drive down Kunyung Road, Canadian Bay Road and the streets off Old Mornington Road and Toorak College for panoramic ocean, bay views and grand mansions.

Oh and don't forget the Manyung Gallery! Haven't been there before but will give it a shot one day!

No matter where I move off to in either Melbourne or interstate- I will still refer to Mt Eliza as home

Jason Spencer Have you noticed a big difference in traffic since Peninsula link went in. I can see more and more people looking to move to the Peninsula for the lifestyle benefits given you can be in the city very quickly now via Eastlink.

"A nice quiet suburb with a beautiful village"

Mt Eliza is a lovely quiet place to live. It is not too far from Melbourne and easy distance to all the peninsula has to offer. Shopping is quite good and it is close to Frankston for the bigger stores like Myer, target and K-mart.

"Lovely village"

Lovely spot, with great landscape and schools. Nice beaches although Mornington and Frankston beaches are a little better.
johnmteliza
johnmteliza Disagree Have you been to all the beaches? Kunyung & Earimil has beautiful sand & deep water. Ranelagh has great boating and two areas between the rocks with deep water and sandbanks Great snorkelling Very private minus the crowds. Canadian Bay has great boating sand banks shallow good for young children. All have great views of Melbournes skyline Good for fireworks New Years Eve. All have great back drop of sanstone cliffs and Victorian boat houses. Peferct venue for destination weddings. Frankston has the drunks and rif raff tripping over you

melaniesimpson
melaniesimpson Yes I have been to all the beaches on The Peninsula (bar none) including those mentioned by you and they are nice. Davey's Bay is particularly quiet and very nice also. But if you travel down the road you will realise that beaches such as Mills, Mt Martha, McCrae, even Carrum & Seaford et al are all aesthetically nicer beaches.

"Best bayside suburb of Melbourne"

Mt Eliza is a unique community where the bush meets the sea. Some argue that Mt Eliza is a bayside suburb of Melbourne because it's only an hour from Melbourne Airport and 45 minutes to the city. Others insist it's a seaside village on the Mornington Peninsula. Whichever way you look at it, is an easy commute to the city or any other part of Melbourne. Mt Eliza has a wonderful seaside village atmosphere which hasn't changed since I was a kid and many of my old friends have never left the area. Although the value of real estate is high, the locals are very friendly and have a great community spirit.

The best streets in Mt Eliza are not necessarily those closest to the beach. The Mt Eliza Woodland, which is the leafy timbered area bordered by Nepean and Moorooduc Highways, and Canadian Bay and Humphries Roads, is a unique part of Victoria because it's covered in trees and indigenous shrubs and the blocks are 2/3 acre or more. The real estate in this tightly held pocket is highly prized.

johnmteliza
johnmteliza Totally agree with all above but having lived in Mt Eliza for over 30 years at one satge I thought I would buy the other side of the highway because the blocks are bigger tennis courts pool etc but I am gal we stuck by the beach and public transport is fantastic in old age as well as when the children were young It allowed them to be more independant Consider the Ranelagh Estate Good value for money

"A beautiful area and a genuine lifestyle choice for every family"

Mount Eliza is a wonderful seaside area full of birds, trees and relaxed friendly people. Mt Eliza folk don't feel like rodents in a rat race - and that's not surprising because they live in one of the most beautiful areas in Australia, the Mornington Peninsula. The shopping centre in Mt Eliza is a quaint and prosperous little village where you can spend your cash in exclusive boutiques or op shops, read the papers and eat a delicious breakfast in one of the terrific coffee shops, take a long walk on the beach, watch multi-coloured lorikeets winging through the sky, see wild ducks and their babies waddling down your street, shop in nearby Frankston or Mornington - and all this only an hour from Melbourne's CBD! We have lived all over Melbourne but after 5 years in Mt Eliza, we know we could never leave it - we feel so very lucky to live in this lovely country-style area.
