Hi All,

I am moving to Melbourne from the UK in the next month to start a new job in Dandenong hospital. I have read that Dandenong is perhaps not the nicest area to stay so I am unsure what area to look at?

I would preferably like to live somewhere in between Dandenong and Melbourne CBD so that I do not have too far to travel to work and equally dont have too far to travel into the CBD. However, the area must have a good public transport system and also have pubs, cafes, restaurants etc as I am a young sociable person who will be keen to meet new people.

I will be looking to rent, preferably a flat/apartment and not wanting to pay over $300 PW so not an expensive area.

I would appreciate all suggestions and would also greatly appreciate knowing what areas to avoid.

Thanks

South Yarra would be ideal IMO. The train to Dandenong stops at Sth Yarra. Not sure how much rent is there nowadays. Trendy area. Traditionally the fashion area of Melbourne. Basically on that line from Sth Yarra to Caufield the suburbs are quite rich and nice...until you get towards Dandenong. Richmond would be good if you prefer more inner-city living.

I would also recommend South Yarra. I lived there in 1972 and it was a great place to live and it's not far from the Botannical Gardens which are gorgeous.
