Mt Eliza or Mornington are great choices. The Mornington Peninsula is sure to offer a perfect suburb for you.

Hi Anne, I guess it depends on whether being close to Melbourne is important to you or not.

My cousin and her 3 children live down in Torquay and absolutely love it. It's about a 1.5 hour drive from the city. Geelong, Queenscliff and Barwon Heads are all nice too.

If you don't mind living further out I'd recommend in and around Lakes Entrance, Venus Bay and Inverloch.

Hi Anne,

I'd recommend checking out properties in the beachside suburbs of Mordialloc, Aspendale, Carrum and Seaford.

There's lots of green space/ parks/ golf clubs/ wetlands/walking trails throughout these areas & all have beach access.

South Gippsland has a lot of options including Sandy Point, Yanakie, Walkerville and Port Welshpool. Of these, Port Welshpool is the furthest from Melbourne however represents great value. Port Welshpool recently re-opened the long-closed 'long jetty' and since then there has been a resurgence in interest in the township. Still, shallow beach (inlet), great walking/bike track, clean park area and good food (pub). On t he not so good side... sandfly's in summer are a problem.

When I first moved to Grantville I was astonished at the measure of natural life in and around the territory. The general population here are very friendly and constantly supportive and possibly too eager to even think about giving a hand in the event that you need one. I adore being so near a boat ramp and the beach just as various strolls around here. Incredible little sustenance spots to in and around the zone so for me it's the best!

Hi Anne, just wondering where you decided to move to, because I too am needing the same question answered. I am a single mum of a 4 year old, and I’m wanting to make a move to either beach (Venus Bay it Phillip Island) or inland (Eildon) - and I can’t decide which direction to go! Just wondering whether you maybe chose Venus Bay or Philip Island in the end, and if so, was it a good move??

Eildon is on the cards for me mainly due to knowing people there and therefore the possibly of getting some work there maybe if I need. But I’m more of a beach kinda person if I had to choose.

Try Tooradin. Small Seaside village, with great a community. This seaside village has everything you would need in walking distance, and the public transport is a "VLine" bus service going through the town regularly every day. Only 11 kilometres from Cranbourne and 40 minutes drive to Chadstone Shopping Centre.
