"Great street and only geting better"

A very narrow street that is quite close to the city, and to be honest is built around location. St Vincent Gardens is just around the corner, the beach is only a short walk away, and it's great for public transport. There are some nice new townhouses being built and this is one to watch out for in a couple of years.

"Pleasantville in Albert Park"

Smith St in Albert Park is a cosy little area consisting of mostly brick and weatherboard houses. You get a very secluded feel from this street, almost like the movie Pleasantville :) The condition of the road could be better, but overall some nice opportunities to here to live or to invest (and develop some of the run down houses.)

"Moubray Street has so much to offer"

Moubray Street has great visual appeal, drive down here and you will see what I am talking about. The street is wide, the houses are nice, and varied with trees lining the street.

Location is great for shopping and dining (Victoria Avenue and Birdport Street) and you are very close to the city, St Kilda and Port Melbourne...all amazing suburbs.

The only negative is that you are right on Albert Park Primary School, which is great if you have kids, however the traffic can be a little bad in the mornings and 3:30 in the afternoon.

But, overall I highly recommend Moubray St.

"Work here, don't live here."

Lalor Street is more of a business apartment type street with many companies having their offices here. A lot of foot traffic is here as well, primarily due to it's proximity to Bay Street shopping. Nice to work here, not so much to live.

"Rundown and not wecoming at all"

Florence Place is extremely run down and not a very welcoming street at all. It is covered in graffiti, and I think there are some commission flats here. Not the best place in Port Melbourne...actually it's one of the worst. BUT good location as it's very close to Bay Street.

"Page Street is the best in Albert Park"

Page Street in Albert Park has to be considered on of the best streets in the entire area. Running right through to Middle Park, Page St has Beautiful town houses that line the street, and is fantastic for public transport. On street parking is not a problem and it is also a very wide street. The townhouse blocks are a little cramped, and you can sometimes hear the neighbors, but this not a major issue.

Amazing location, so close to the beach, Victoria Avenue cafe's and restaurants and Albert Park Lake make this one of the best!

"Perfect for families"

It's an extremely narrow street that runs directly along Port Melbourne Family and Children's Community Centre. If you have kids, this is a great thing, as your kids can basically walk across the road to childcare...HOWEVER...it can be quite noisy at lunchtime.

It does run directly into the main road Graham Street, and can add to the noise. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice street, but not compared to Clark Street (especially across the other side of Graham Street) and Poolman Street.

"There are much better that this in Port Melbourne"

Byrne Street runs just behind Beacon Cove in Port Melbourne. A very wide street that houses some extremely run down townhouses in need of redevelopment.

Unfortunately Byrne Street pales in comparison to some of the other gorgeous streets in the area such as Clark Street and Poolman Street. Overall, I'd skip this one as you really don't get that "Port Melbourne" feel, and there are simply many better.

"STUNNING street...except for the poor condition of the street."

Gorgeous overhead tree canopies, and there are some rather large older style homes in Meredith St. House of note is 4a Meredith, which is a STUNNING!

Finally, the council should do something about the condition of the road as it really needs some attention.

"Perfect for families"

A very wide beautiful street with fantastic tree canopy overhead. Houses are a little old and rundown, and could undergo some redevelopment in the next 10-15 years. On street parking is more than fine, and amazing location being so close to Acland St and the beach.

"Great for single and young people looking for the perfect location"

Great location, fantastic amenities, and great view of the beach. Everyone knows this street in iconic St Kilda. It's right on the beach, and very close to great pubs like the Espy Hotel, Maccas around the corner, and of course it's so close to Acland street AND Fitzroy Street you really can't go wrong here...especially in Summer.

If you are young and single, this is a great street to live on.

"A tale of two streets...in one!"

While many people think Acland Street as the alive center of hustle bustle shopping cafe living, many people don't realise that Acland Street has some of the nicest homes in St Kilda. In between Fitzroy Street and Carlisle St, Acland Street turns residential, with glorious tree canopies, and old style brick houses. There are a few houses that would be great for redevelopment as well.

It really is one of the best locations in all of Melbourne, so close to everything such as ALL the shopping and dining on both Fitzroy Street and Jacka Blvd, and not to mention having the beach at your doorstep is a joy.

The only downside I can think of is that there a few people who walk in between Fitzroy St and Carlisle St on Friday and Saturday night. And parking is permit zone in the street, so no go there ether.

Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this Acland Street in St Kilda!

"Perfect on a warm Saturday night....and tourists should not miss this one."

Not really a street you can live, but more a place that your lifestyle revolves around. This is the center-point for access to many amenities, such as the local IGA, Rex Hunt's Fish n Chips, Genesis Gym's and many more local shops.

At night, the bars and restaurants come to life. There's s string of fantastic eateries such as Waterfront Cafe, Station Pier 3 and Campari. If you are still energetic at the end of the night, you can jump across to Ocean Blue Nightclub and dance the night away...and if the bouncers won't let you into this waterfront location, you can always stroll down the road to The London or a little further down and reach The Pier Restaurant and Bar.

Overall it's hard to dislike Waterfront Place, one of the main streets in Port Melbourne.
