Point Cook as previously mentioned is set up very well for amenities and families with plenty of shops/playgrounds/new larger shopping centre etc You would get a nice reasonable new house for that price too, but public transport is ****e out there there moment, would have to drive or bus it to a train station.
You could try looking around Fairfield/Clifton Hill/Heidelberg/Northcote area. Not sure on price but is close to city with a lot of parkland around.
If you went to www.realestate.com.au and selected a couple of preferred 'nicer' suburbs or areas, you can then tick for 'surrounding suburbs' so would give you an idea of what your budget would get you. HTH

I know you said where NOT to live, but somewhere that's good for families, Try Sunbury,
Has everything you want and 4 bedroom house is around $350

Fairfield, Clifton Hill and Northcote are all great but again I don't think you'd get anything half decent for your budget. Perhaps look at these type of suburbs and then see which ones are a couple more stops out on the train line? It is expensive in Melbourne, as it is most places...

I know Malvern has already been mentioned but the surrounding suburbs - Glen Waverley, Mt Waverley etc - are also lovely and I am currently renting a 3 bedroom house for under $400 in that area, there is lots of public transport within a short walk and I generally feel very safe walking around my suburb!
Some bayside suburbs (Cheltenham, Bentleigh) are also really nice and quite affordable.

My dad lives in Mcgregor (however it's spelt). I used to be a southsider.
If you want close to the city, try point cook (about the closest you'll get for your price range). If you want a leafy area, you may find Bentleigh or Oakleigh a good area.
The Charny equivalent out west would be Werribee or Hoppers Crossing. Out south east would be Noble Park, Dandenong or Doveton.

Eastern and Northern suburbs are nice..
I wouldnt go near the North Western suburbs under any circumstance!
Someone already mentioned Craigieburn and Roxburgh Park, Ill add Broadmeadows, Meadow Heights, Gladstone Park and Dallas.
Also a little further west, Sunshine (known by many people as scumshine) and St Albans.
Oh and Dandenong and Springvale are pretty dirty, overcrowded suburbs too!
Someone said Heidelberg was nice.. Just be careful which end! You
want the Burgundy St end..near the hospitals. The southern rd
end is heavy on the gov housing, has a few huge blocks of flats and is quite rough and scary! Jump over to the neighboring suburb of Preston for nice big streets

IMO avoid Frankston North, Chelsea Heights, Hallam, most of Cranbourne and Carrum Downs. If you look at all the 'burbs people have listed, you'll start to see there are 3 or 4 areas of Melbourne and surrounding suburbs that you should avoid if you can.
I've lived in Newport & Ascot Vale (not sure you'd get what you want in your range but if you can, I'd highly recommend both). We're now further out East away from the city. It would help to know how far by train you're willing to travel to get to the city. The difference between a 30/45/60 minute trip can be huge in terms of which "desirable" suburbs are available.

We're in a 4 bed, 2 bath, 2 car on a decent size block for point cook for under 400.
Moving out very too as well.

I was going to suggest cheltenham, dingley etc lots of transport, 10-15 from the bay, 30-45 mins to
city, huge shopping centre, lots of good schools and parks
we used to rent a decent siZe 3 bedroom
for 300 a week 5 years ago so u should still be able to get something for under 400
