This lovely, once-quiet suburb is coming to life as its streets fill up with funky new shops, cafes, and essential services such as doctors, dentists, physios, and more. The trains to central Melbourne run every 10 mins, and there are plenty of buses available. Highett boasts a library on the high street, with a community centre only a short walk away for those raising young families looking for playgroups. Even better, a short drive takes you to Sandringham and Black Rock beach, where you can enjoy a sunset walk on white sand.

Just 12 km from Melbourne’s CBD, the seaside suburb of Brighton offers excellent family living. With a mixture of historic houses on large blocks, newer mansions, townhouses, and new apartment complexes, you’re sure to find a place suitable for your lifestyle and budget. Well serviced by four train stations (Sandringham line) and bus and tram services, this pretty suburb with its famous brightly coloured beach huts is a firm favourite.

From Wantirna, it is an easy commute to Knox, with public transport within walking distance. It is an excellent suburb for raising a family with plenty of play areas and open spaces/sporting grounds. The beach is a short trip away straight down Eastlink in summer, and in winter, the mountains are just a 90-minute car journey for those chasing a snowy ski break.
