Hawthorn East

"Relaxed living without heading too far out."

Hawthorn East is close to the city and has a lovely green feel to it. Tree lined streets and character homes makes this a great place to be.
There are some good parks close by to walk the dog or take the kids out to run free for a bit.
The area is well serviced by supermarkets and other shops so you shouldn't have to go far to get what you need. However some of the shops aer expensive so it may be better to look further afield for shops.
Public transport services the area pretty well with a number of trams in the area. As a result if you are in streets close to the tram it can get busy with parking as it makes a convenient spot for others around to park to catch the trams into the CBD.
A good area for families and retirees.

"A lovely suburb close to the city with ample public transport"

A lovely suburb close to the city with ample public transport. So it is easy to get into the city to work.
There are plenty of good shops nearby to get what you need. However, some of the shops in the area are a little expensive so it could be an idea to look further afield for your regular shopping.
This suburb has a number of character homes around which adds to its charm.
There are some nice parks close by making it a good spot for those with pets or children. Take them to the park and let them run free for a bit.
There are some reasonable restaurants close by if you want to have a nice meal out but they are not going to be on every street corner.
A good area for families and retirees.
Don’t forget the Sunday Market

East Melbourne

"Tiny suburb with some big pluses"

The tiny little suburb of Jolimont is so close to the city making it very appealing for many. It is close to Richmond and often considered to be part of east Melbourne. As a result it has a lot of what Richmond and East Melbourne have to offer including access to some great nightspots and restaurants and cafes.
You can walk into the city from here without trouble, although if you're not a walker there are plenty of options with public transport.
If you like greenery it is just south of Fitzroy Gardens making it a great spot to get out for a walk in the park.
There are plenty of little shops close by but there are more, larger shops further afield and you always have the option of going into the city.
The MCG is right there so it can get busy and noisy at different times of the year. Watch out for grand final day and Boxing Day.
Probably best for young professionals and singles that want that proximity to the city.

Williamstown

"At the river mouth there is a lot on offer"

Across the river from the CBD to the west sits a lovely seaside suburb of Williamstown.
Williamstown is a short train ride to the city making it great for those that work in the CBD. It’s a shorter walk to the beach. This makes it an ideal spot for those that love runs, walks or rides along the beach. If you don't want to go to the beach and prefer the green side of things then the Botanic gardens a there.
This is a great family area with a wonderful neighbourly vibe.
There are plenty of shops around to service your needs so you won't have to go far. But further afield there are plenty of more places.
There are some nice restaurants in the area so a meal out is easy.

"Loaded with parks and walking distance to the city"

This is suburbia at its best. Quiet and relaxed with plenty of parks and places to run, walk, cycle or do whatever else you may want to do.
There are gold courses nearby for the golf lovers which just adds to the green feel.
There aren’t a lot of places to go out for a drink around the immediate area but it’s not too far from a number of places, including the city and all it has to offer.
Its also not far to Brunswick and the great restaurants and café’s for that Sunday brunch.
It’s a great spot to get close to Melbourne University but probably out of the price range for most students although there is a good mix of places available.
It is well serviced by public transport but you could walk into the city.

"Easy trip into the city from this family friendly area"

Within Footscray there are some lovely streets that are lined by trees with beautiful older houses.

"Top spot not far from the city"

Kingsville has a wonderful vibe, it just feels right.
There are schools close by and it is a friendly area making it good for families. However, there are places for everyone from one bedroom apartments to family homes. The downside for me is the apartment blocks are unattractive monstrosities, but that the nature of apartment blocks regardless of location.
It is close to the city and well serviced by public transport making it easy to get into the city for work, or a good night out.
There are some great little places to eat close by. If you want to get out for a night out there are some places not too far away but they aren’t just at the end of the street.

"A wonderful opportunity for a sea change"

I really enjoyed visiting Portland when travelling back from Melbourne to Adelaide.
With a seal colony close by and some great fishing it’s an area for a lot of people.
There are a number of schools in the area making it a good spot for families. And the beach is quite a nice spot for some safe still water swimming.
If you’re into water sports like windsurfing then Portland would make a great spot.
There are plenty of good restaurants and cafés around town so you can get a decent meal if you like to eat out.
A good blend of houses from some great historic buildings through to some newer houses will make this town appealing to a number of people.

"A wonderful seaside town for a sea change"

A great seaside town only 3 hours out of Melbourne on the Great Ocean Road.
The beach is great and it’s a top spot to surf for those that love the beach lifestyle.
The streets are attractive and well laid out making getting around easy.
If you want to get out and have a good time there are a few reasonable places to go. Or you could just go into one of the many restaurants or cafes.
You will be able to get everything you need in Warrnambool and then some, unlike so many country towns. There are a good range of shops in town.
When driving back from Adelaide we had to make sure we stopped at Cheese World and it was a highlight. Nothing better than fresh well made cheese.

Just south of Caulfield racecourse this area has a lot to offer although the proximity to the racecourse can make it busy at certain times of the year.
There is a good blend of houses from older homes to newer smaller courtyard homes and units so there is a bit there for everyone.
It’s not far to Chadstone shops and at only 11km from the city makes for a reasonably short trip to the city. You could even cycle it in without too much trouble.
The area is well serviced by public transport so it’s easy to get around even if you don’t have a car.

Some of the best shops in the area, easy access to the city on the freeway and an easy trip out of the city makes this one of the best spots in Melbourne.
The area is well serviced by public transport if you’re not a driver so you can get to the city easily.
There are some great parks and playgrounds in the area making it very family friendly. Just take them over and then let them tire themselves out. For families with kids this is one of the easiest ways to remain sane.

There are some great houses in the area so you’re sure to find what you need regardless of what you are looking for.
