I vote for St Kilda also, although i am quite biased - since i live there. :) Elwood and Brighton are very cool, but slightly on the more expensive side.

Hi,

You can look in the Elwood and St Kilda area, but I wouldn't go past Port Melbourne. Worth checking out.
Great dinning, gyms, bars, high rise apartments and townhouses filled with singles.

Hope this helps

I'd add Richmond to the list - it's great for single females and so close to the city.

Truganina is one of the best options. 8 mins drive(you need car) to Laverton or Hoppers crossing station. Around 8 child care centre. 6 schools (all of them good ones).Really good houses ,with lot of space. Locality is safe and with Tarneit (vline station in 2016) . For money,saftey and space. Truganina,Tarneit. Good 3-4 bed room houses around 350-400$ pm

When are you moving? Just wondered if you had done so already and how you were finding it or when you are moving. Im also a single female early 30s - moving out from the UK, London to arrive in April next year. I also want a beachside location - so any advice would be great!

+1 for St Kilda, Elwood and Brighton. Also Williamstown is a good place. They are all easy reach to the city with public transport - say 20 mins?

Elwood is probably the better area out of the two. If you specifically want a trendy bayside location you could also consider Brighton, Sandringham, Mentone or Chelsea.

You've hit the nail on the head - Elwood and St Kilda are perfect. Also look at Carlton, Brunswick, South Melbourne & South Yarra (although these are not bayside)
