  1. Hi, My husband has been offered a job in St. Kilda, Melbourne and we are hoping to be over by the beginnning of January as his company is in the process of sorting out our visas. We have a 4 month old baby and 2 labradors and so have been looking at Altona as a possible place to live - it seems to have lots of nice parks/walks and is much cheaper than the Eastern suburbs by the sea. Does anyone know this area and would recommend it? I know that we may be limited in terms of rental choice because of the dogs - any advice??? His company have offered us two weeks accomodation so we can sort ourselves out - is this enough time to find a rental or does the process take longer (therefore making it worthwhile arranging something before we go?) I would also like to get an idea of monthly outgoings - e.g. is there a form of council tax etc? Based on this we may up or lower our rental budget - at the moment we are looking to spend no more than $400 a week. Does anyone drive from this area to around St. Kilda and have any idea how long it would take? My husband doesn't want a huge commute and would prefer to drive. Last question (promise!) - as I have just had a baby I go to lots of classes over here like swimming lessons, tiny talk etc, are there similar things in Melbourne? Thanks in advance if you can help with any of this!

    Best areas around Melboune

    HI, Can anyone give us advice on what are the best/nicest melbourne suburbs to live for a family with a 14 yr old girl and 11 yr old boy? Obviously looking at good schools both state and private and would be lovely to be fairly close to beach, walking distance to schools and plenty of things to do for both the kids and us. Good commuter links for hubby too, as he will be going into Melbourne each day. Thanks for your help :biggrin:
