Parkdale

"Quiet and close to the beach"

A lovely beachside suburb with a good number of lovely streets and beautiful houses. The downside in being in such a great area with such a good beach is the visitors during the height of summer. But that is easy to deal with when you can get down there and enjoy the benefits without having to drive.
The area has reasonable public transport but its going to be a reasonably long trip to the city.
There are some good schools in the area for families with kids and a few good kindergartens as well.
Its not too far to Southland if you can’t get what you need around the corner.
On top of the beach for having fun with the kids there are some good parks around the area.

The govt school in Parkdale seems to be a mixed bag. The private schools (esp Mentone Grammar) are great though... if you can get in.

"Goods schools and kindergartens with the beach close by"

There is a lot to like about Cheltenham. There are some good schools in the area as well as excellent kindergartens.
The area is reasonably well serviced by public transport so you can get to Southland or into the city without any difficulty.
Closer to the beach than the city this is a great spot for beach lovers that don’t like the salt crust on everything that you get living right on the beach.
There is a gold course close by for the golf lovers and plenty of good parks to add to the green feel of the area.
Good for families with kids of all ages and retirees.

Yep! I just love living in Cheltenham. I live in Weatherall Road. Very close to Beaumaris. So close in fact many of my neighbours like to call it Beaumaris - the snobby ones anyhow! Funny how much a suburb name can mean to some people.

Growing up in Cheltenham no much was happening, however as soon as I moved out a few funky places popped up such a Pick It Up Fitness on Bernard Street and Frank's Cafe on Cavanagh Street.
Dang my luck!

"A great area for families"

This is a nice area close to a number of beaches and major shopping centres. The downside for those working in the city would be it is starting to get a bit too far out for some.
The major shops close by include Southland and Chadstone so if you can’t get it around the corner its only going to be 10 minutes away.
There are some good schools in the area, and depending on where you are they may be within walking distance making it ideal for families. On top of this kindergartens and childcare are close by.
There are some good parks in the area including a great playground and for those with young kids you’ll know how important that is.
While there are buses and trains to service the area, the public transport coverage isn’t as good as some areas close to the city. The up side is there isn’t the same noise.

"An easy commute for people in the area"

A nice area with some good parks to take the kids or dog. The downside is for families with younger kids is that there doesn’t appear to be much play equipment. For me this would be a deciding factor against the area as my daughter loves playgrounds.
There is reasonable public transport with the train station in the area making the commute into the city an easy one. It is not too far from the city and Chadstone shopping centre so aside from the shops in the area you won’t need to go too far to get what you need.
The drive into the city is easy and quite quick so it’s a good area for those that need to commute to the CBD for work.

"Lovely quiet area for families to live"

A lovely quiet area for families to live happily among the tree lined streets.
There are some good schools in the area so you won’t need to travel far to drop the kids off and there is a good number of kindergartens and child care.
Southland shopping centre and Chadstone shopping centres aren’t too far away however there are plenty of good shops in the area as well as all the other necessary services.
If you want to get out for a meal there are a few places around, although if you’re looking for the nightlife this probably isn’t the spot for you. More suited to families looking for relaxed suburban lifestyles.

Agree, one of the main things I noticed when I moved into the area was the abundance of primary schools and child care!
Clearly a very (new)family-centric location.

"Not far from anything - good for families"

Only 12 km out of the city and not far from St Kilda there is that perfect blend of action close by as well as the wonderful quiet relaxed feel of the suburbs. With tree lined streets and parks close by what more could you ask for?

For families there are plenty of good schools around from kindergarten through to high schools. It is an ideal and safe area for families.
There is easy access to the city via public transport or on the main roads if you’re a driver.

Hampton East

"Ideal for families"

Not too far out of the city for a reasonably easy commute or for the more energetic, a cycle, this is a good area for young families.
It is home to a number of nice parks which is great for people with kids or dogs to take them and let them run. Hampton east is also not far from the beach for those lazy summer days by the water.
There is a gold course nearby for the golfers and plenty of shops close by to get everything you could need.
Schools and kindergartens are of good quality and close by making it an ideal area for families.

"Nice place on the beach and not far from everything you could need"

A great beachside location out of the city.
There are some great tree lined streets and some beautiful character homes around the area, as well as some newer homes. For the golfers the local golf course will keep you happy and it just adds to the green feel.
There are plenty of schools and kindergartens close by which makes it an ideal place for families. There are also child care facilities. With the beach and a few nice parks, there is little more a family could want.
With the greenery comes the birdlife which adds to the vibe.
There are plenty of shops within walking distance including milk bars and supermarkets.
If you want to get out for a meal there are a few nice places not too far away.
There is easy access to the city up the Nepean Way.

"Parks, the beach and not far from the city"

Not far from the beach and not far from the city. Plenty to look forward to.
Elsternwick is a short jump from the beach for those beach people and set back a bit if you don’t like the beach in winter. The streets are lovely with a good coverage of trees and there are plenty of older character homes that add to the wonderful vibe of the area.
If you fancy a nice house to renovate there are still a few around the area.
There are plenty of good shops nearby and Chadstone isn’t too far away either.
The area has some good restaurant but being not far from St Kilda and the city you can easily get a meal without going too far afield.
If you fancy a night out, St Kilda is close by and the city is an easy trip as well.

"Great beach, easy access to the city and nighlife not far away - a bit for everyone"

Lovely tree lined streets in wonderful beachside location, what more could you ask for?
There are plenty of places to get out for a bite to eat close by and it’s not too far up the road to St Kilda for that night out.
There are some older houses in the area in need of some attention making it the ideal spot for renovators wanting the character home.
Close to the beach with some great parks close by means there is plenty of room to jog, walk or just let the kids go wild.
It is easy to get into the city by car and won’t take long but when the area is well serviced by public transport why have the stress of driving? You could be in the city just as fast.

"Not far from the city and close to the beach"

Train and trams close by as well as the buses makes this a good location. It is easy to get to the city and to the beach and while it is a reasonable distance from the city it still isn’t too far to cycle.
There is a good collection of houses from townhouses through to larger family homes. Some of the homes are wonderful character homes that give the area a nice historic feel.
There are some great parks nearby that give the area the green we all want and it provides plenty of room for kids to run.
With the beach not too far away it’s easy to go and cool down on those hot days without having to travel too far.

"Close to the shops, close to the city - plenty to like"

Close to Caulfield racecourse and with easy access to the city along the freeway this area has a lot going for it.
This is a good blend of houses available from apartments and units through to houses on larger blocks making it suitable for a wide range of people. There are still some beautiful older homes on smaller blocks that have been restored or well maintained.
Public transport services the area well with train stations close by and trams not far away either.
There are some good schools in the area and close by and it is close to Monash University making it a good spot for families of all ages, or just Uni students looking for a spot close to Uni.
There are some good shops around and Chadstone isn’t too far away either.

"Quiet area suitable for families"

A quiet residential area that is well suited to families.
It has its own good quality shopping to get what you need although Chadstone is not far away.
Its not too far out of the city so if you’re an active person you could cycle in along the bike lanes. However, public transport, including the train services the area well so its easy to get into the CBD and won’t take too long.
There are some great parks around the area so you can take your kids and/or dog and let them run a bit. Nice parks add to the green feel as well.
It has a good blend of different houses on reasonable size blocks so there is no doubt you’ll find what you are looking for.

"parks, glorious parks, and a gold course"

Want park life? This is the spot for you. With the WA Scammell reserve and other parks around you’ll have plenty of green close by to run, walk, cycle, picnic or let the kids run wild. There is even a good golf course here for those that like a bit of a hit.
Chadstone shops are close by for everything you could ever need and its easily accessed by public transport. Public transport will also whip you into the city if you work in the CBD.
Night life isn’t the focus in the area, it is more of a family area, but there are some good restaurants close by.

"A lot to offer - well situated in a lovely green area"

Well situated in a lovely green area of Melbourne Hughesdale is close to everything you could need or want.
Chadstone is within walking distance of some area and a short drive otherwise and so it really is a very short trip to get whatever you need.
It is a lovely suburb with a great neighbourly vibe without being nosey.
There are some good schools nearby so it’s a good area for families. Add to that the parks and childcare centres and you’re in one of the ideal family locations.
It is easy to get into the city by car on the freeway which isn’t far away. However, you can just as easily get out of the city. If you’d rather catch public transport, the area is reasonably well serviced.

"Close to everything is a top area"

One of the benefits of Mt Waverly is its proximity to everything you need while being a short drive from the city.
There are good schools and childcare centres close by and there is nothing better than having one of those around the corner saving that extra hassle in the morning.
There are plenty of good shops near by including Chadstone as well as the local shops and hairdressers, video stores and milkbars.
It is a nice green area and it shows with the abundance of wildlife around. You’ll see lorikeets and other wonderful birds as well as the odd duck and possum.

Public transport services the area well so the commute to the city is pretty easy.

Chadstone

"Easy access to the city and with some great local amenities"

This is a great family area. There are parks close by to let them run wild, and to let dogs run and tire themselves out.
Chadstone shops are around the corner so you should be able to get everything you need and then some without any difficulty.
The area is well serviced by public transport, whisking you into the city quickly and efficiently.
There are some reasonable places to get out and have a meal if you want without having to go far. But don't expect a restaurant or cafe on every street corner.
If you want to get out for a night out you may need to go a bit further afield but there are some good places not too far away. Probably more for families and retirees than young couples or singles.
