"One of the best suburbs in Melbourne*"

*if you work in Melbourne's South East and/or don't mind a really long commute. Beside's being so far from Melbourne's CBD, and one incredibly frustrating level crossing, I can't fault the area at all. There is a ton of green spaces, and a bunch of fantastic cafe and restaurant options (I'm looking at you Hendrik's and BANG BANG!). The pier is absolutely stunning at sunset, and the beach is always clean - the sand is a little coarse, but still pleasant to walk on. A short drive further down the coast gives you access to more private beaches with finer sand.

The main strip has everything you could ever need, from bakeries to supermarkets (Woolies and ALDI), pubs and restaurants, op shops, florists and more. Train's run frequently (every 10 minutes), and there are a number of convenient buses also. I haven't been living here long enough (~6 months) to confidently comment on this, but it seems as though there are plenty of community activities too. There's currently a 3-week long fun fair down by the beach; the rides are primarily (or exclusively) targeted towards younger kids, but it creates an amazing atmosphere for all.

If not for the fact that all of my friends are inner city based, I would never leave Mordialloc, but unfortunately as it stands it feels somewhat socially isolated for a young professional like myself. So in sum: highly recommended for young families or those who work locally, but not those who regularly spend time within the inner city/CBD.

Who lives here?
