    Footscray is an up and coming suburb. There's a gorgeous new estate called Banbury Village, lots of young families and professionals - I have quite a few friends that live there and love it.

    There's good public transport, and it's close to the city, about 30 mins driving to the airport. Lots of shops and cafés within pretty easy walking distance.

    And I'm in Sunshine - there's nothing wrong with it. Like anywhere there are dodgy areas, but you get that in any suburb. We are only a 15-20 minute drive to the airport, and about 30 to the CBD. But from where we are public transport is terrible - about a 2km walk to the bus, and there's no shops or anything within walking distance.

    You could also look at Kensington - you should be able to find something within your price range and the local facilities are awesome for families.

    There are traffic jams during peak hour..

    This he all been very helpful. I've been thinking some more about it, and if we were to move here if be looking at going a bit more rural/bigger block/less suburban.

    Does this kind of thing exist within commuting distance of the airport?

    I'd go rural if you can. Sorry to sound snobby but I HATE the western suburbs, wouldn't live there if you paid me (I was born and live in the eastern suburbs). I personally could only go rural over that way.

    Well there's Sunbury/Gisborne area, which is quite close to the airport but doesn't have a great reputation. A bit further out is Mt Macedon which is nice.

    What kind of areas would you suggest?

    I have two dogs which is going to make renting more difficult but I think rural might be more dog-friendly.

    I looked at Sunbury where you seem to get a lot for your money. Interesting that it's not got a great reputation.

    I lived in Sunbury when I went to uni there, I didn't find it dodgy... But then... I was a uni student at the time... Perhaps I was part of the problem with the area. And that was 7 years ago. But if you step outside of Sunbury you're in rural, surrounded by farms and stuff (well... 7 years ago... Probably different now)

    I'm moving to Melbourne soon, we're looking at Yarraville at the moment.

    Definitely not point cook. It is serviced by 2 single lanes onto the freeway and traffic between 7am-10am and 4pm -7pm is totally ridiculous.
    Try Sunbury / Gisbourne area

    If you want rural, Lancefield and Romsey aren't too far from tulla and nice, quiet little towns. Drive is about 20 mins from sunbury
