"Beaumaris"

A nice place to live overall generally safe, sound and pretty quiet. Price of housing can be a bit expensive as can rentals but if you want to live in a nice bayside suburb then you have to pay for it. A lot of the older style homes are either being knocked down and rebuilt or extensively renovated. The majority of people who live in Beaumaris are friendly, there are some young people and families moving into the area now who want a good suburb to raise their children, there are also still quite a lot of retirees who live here who like the quiet.
Pros
  • Clean
  • Leafy

"Serenity"

We love the beautiful environment of Beaumaris.

Quiet streets, respectful neighbours, a place where we can feel safe, but still very close to all the facilities and benefits of Cheltenham. Both our kids went to Cheltenham Secondary College and got great results (ENTER scores over 90) so I strongly recommend it.

Great friendly shopping in Seaview shopping strip. The fish and chip shop in particular is excellent.

"One of the best..."

Beaumaris is up there with the best pockets in Melbourne.

Leafy, clean, spacious and far enough away from the flea bag suburbs down the tracks.

"Perfect for us!"

We moved to Beaumaris 4 years ago, from Brighton, and although it being another 10 -15 min down the road we wouldn't change it for the world.
The suburb is naturally stunning with its natural foliage and green-belt protection. The cliffs and the marine sanctuary are unique to Beauy and provide our family with hours of enjoyment every week. The shops are good and improving all time and people are so much more DTE than our previous neighborhood. Beaumaris is also blessed with some of Australia's best examples of mid-century architecture for those looking for a little piece of history to live in.
Seriously I can't see us ever moving out of the area....Its perfect...for us!

"Close to perfect Bayside suburb"

Always people out walking with their family and dogs, riding bikes or running. Very quiet, safe place to live and some lovely little local shops. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

"Its a great place to live for every type of lifestyle and is a quiet beachside gem."

We have lived in Beaumaris for nearly 12 months after moving from a neighbouring suburb. Beaumaris has a great " feel " to it with its green and leafy ambience and associated birdlife. People can always be seen connecting with their environs through walking ( particularly with their pet dog (s) ), riding etc. Access to public transport is very good with many of the bus routes ending up at Cheltenham station and Southland which are both located only a couple of minutes away. There are several shopping precincts that offer a variety of stores and services and many excellent private and public schools that service the area particularly when you include the schools located just around the beach road bend in Mentone.With access to cliff top beachside walks and nearby swimming beaches and its associated panoramic views, access to the sand belt golf courses and by todays standards is reasonably close to the CBD, what more can you ask for in a location.

"Family friendly village feel"

We've lived in Beaumaris for 3 years now and the neighbours have been amazing. There are always people out and about walking their dogs, running or pushing a pram. We give it an A+ for neighbourly spirit and safety.

Beaumaris has a wonderful cliff top walking track with some amazing views of the bay. And the Concourse Shopping Centre is full of wonderful shops, restaurants and medical facilities.

The suburb itself doesn't have a train station but they make up for that with regular bus routes to Southland and train stations.

We just love it here!!
