Stkilda is a beach suberb near the city, very busy in terms of nightlife and always seems to have plenty going on. Lots of backpackers live there. Not sure if id want to live there as its very busy but it depends what you want I guess. A good choice would be elwood which is pretty much walking distance to St kilda. In my opinion its nice and you'd probably get a better property for your money.

 

Fogot to mention St kilda and the surrounds have average rent prices for the east coast suberbs. Transport links on this side of town are good with train and tram.

 

suandianbrown......not sure on Berwick but mornington is nice, was there yesterday. Some lovely beaches and I think the housing is not too expensive. A bit far if you need to commute into the city though.
