My husband will be visiting Melbourne mid-Feb. for business and has about 3 days to look about. Can anyone tell me what he should see. Any idea of how to get around? Is it very expensive to get a cab? Please help!
Thanks so much!

I can’t advise on places to see there, I don’t know Melbourne well enough. I can tell you that a taxi cost me $75 from the airport to St Kilda, it was a good 30 minute drive. Also, the trams are good way to get about, buy a myki card from the 7-Eleven.

You might be better off asking your question on my page about Melbourne, rather than eastern suburbs page, you would get a better response.

Cheers, Bob

how far is Clayton, South East from Melbourne airport


mike September 16, 2014 at 9:21 am

Claytons about 60kms from melbourne airport. Its roughly a 45-60min car trip via the monash fwy-citylink tunnels-and tullamarine fwy, when its not peak hr. Expect big delays at peak times.

My wife has just aquired a job in Knox and we are moving at end of November. We are currently trying to find out what suburbs are nicest to live in. We are ooking at leasing for a year before buying a property.
Our main thing is finding a nice area – more so than a nice property. We have a 2 year old son and he would require a Nursery.

Any advise you can give would be welcome – even if its a list of areas to stay clear off.

Thanks in advance

I can’t help you myself Wayne, I don’t know the area at all. Hopefully someone will read your comment here who does know will help you out, but you might also like to have a look at the comments on my main page about Melbourne as there’s quite a bit of information about different areas there.

Maybe even re-ask your question on that page as it gets more views, good luck, Bob

bob, if your getting a job in knox I would suggest living in knox. Knox is located between the south east and eastern outer suburbs of Melbourne which is possibly 60kms out of the cbd. Unfortunatley for knox it has no train line, no tram line- as yet. Its main roads from the city is the Burwood hwy and other main arterial rds are Stud, Ferntree Gully rds. East link runs north to south and can take you to the city but is tolled unfortunatley. Knox is almost at the foothills of the Dandenongs so your not far from some awesome national parks and good tourist destinations. The reason why I say live in Knox if your working in Knox is because Melbournes outer suburbs are so reliant on cars its absolutley pathetic. There is one thing you’ll do when you move to Melbourne. Whinge about the lack of public transport and whinge about the traffic and how the state government are a bunch of blood sucking leaches. When you do that you’ll be a true Melbournian, lol. One more thing. I suggest visiting Captain Americas Hamburger Heaven. Its in Ferntree Gully and its a great little place to take the family to. Nothing flash just big burgers at very reasonable prices and a good relaxed setting to chow down on burgers fries shakes icecreams and deep fried cheese!

Lol knox doesn’t have a train line?? It has upper gully, Ferntree gully, boronia and bayswater station! all these train stations are are in the city of knox. Knox is not a suburb! I think you are confused with Wantirna, with the shopping centre called knox city.. Wantirna does not have train station. But with ringwood station, bayswater starion or glen w station surrounding Wantirna it won’t take you long to get to one. Captain A’s is fantastic!!! I’ll give you that! Obviously not from knox or the area?

Hi there
I am looking at buying in the south eastern suburbs, I have been told Mulgrave, Scoresby & Rowville are fairly close to where my son will be going to school, can you please advise which one of these suburbs would have the best reputation?


Mark November 19, 2014 at 7:47 am

Hi All
I am moving out to Melbourne in January. I will be working in Mulgrave, I was looking to rent in Mordialloc in the south eastern suburbs. Anybody have any information on what the area is like.
My wife will be looking for work and maybe working in the CBD.
