My sister has just bought in Sunshine West. The railway station is being fixed up and there is going to be a lot of new infrastructure. Its relative proximity to the city plus all the new development means that in 5 years it wont be the same suburb that it is known for today and prices will rise.

I'm trying to think of some areas to recommend but it's so hard! It depends on what you like. For example my dream area would be Warrandyte but I work from home and don't need to commute. My hubby on the other hand really wants a short train commute to his city job so we love living in the inner bayside area where the train ride is only 15 mins from Flinders Street.
He's a city boy so would prefer to live in a smaller house in hip and happening Carlton or Fitzroy. I need space, trees, good private and public schools and beach, So inner bayside is our best compromise.
My dream inner city neighborhood is Clifton Hill - it has hip cafes and the beautiful bike track along the river that feels like you're far away in the bush. I think we'll move there one day

Take a look at Upwey.
We got our DS into childcare quite easily, and it's reasonably priced - both childcare, and the entire suburb. Beautiful leafy surrounds, we can hand-feed parrots on our balcony in the morning, quiet streets, schools and shops within walking distance ... it's a lovely place.
There's a train station in the village, and a bus stop too. Motorway access isn't great, but it still only takes me 45 minutes to get to work in the CBD by motorcycle. My wife has a similar commute by car to Moorabbin Airport where she works.
This is the view from my front deck:
