My inlaws still live in Tarneit, it's gotten so rough. They're in one of the newest estates and I can't believe how fast it's gone downhill. They have people playing music at ridiculous volumes at all hours, but you can't confront them because they get violent. We had the same trouble even though it was in a different part. I'd never move back there.

I'm in Hoppers Crossing and really like it, I'm 10 minutes from the freeway and getting to the city takes 35-40 minutes with minimal traffic. If you lived closer to the freeway you'd be in the city in 25-30. If you have no need to go to the city, you are still close to places like Point Cook which has fantastic brand new shops (the Monday before christmas they were completely empty!), Yarraville which has a lovely village and a great independent movie theatre, and Williamstown which has beaches and restaurants...
I personally wouldn't live out East because houses are twice as far from the city for the same price as you get in the west.

There are some awesome suburbs all the way along right down the Mornington Peninsula
Once the new freeway is completed in 2013, places on the Peninsula are only going to be 30-45 mins from the city and it is an absolutely awesome place to live, I can't recommend Mornington/Mount Martha enough. I'd never ever live anywhere else in Victoria.

Try Epping. It's north, past preston. I've only ever lived in the northern suburbs and while I'll always DREAM about moving back to east brunswick *sigh* I've gotten used to it here and we now live in a really great location. There's a little shopping village right around the corner with a small grocer, chemist and take aways, a big shopping centre about 10 mins walk away, a park nearby. In the street we live in, the kids all know each other and ride their bikes up and down all day until it gets dark. Our neighbours put our bins in for us! There's available places in child care centres, and it's not really far away from the CBD. DF and I still drive there every weekend easily for a day/night out.
The only bad thing I will say about the area is the health care isn't great (the northern hospital is a joke), we still see a GP in thornbury - and to avoid the area of Epping that is now estates (Lyndarum, Aurora - there's lots of people playing music at all hours of the night, teens roaming around drinking etc). Other than that it's actually not a bad place to live. We pay $340 a week for a lovely - older but lovely - big 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house with a HUGE backyard.
My dad and brother, on the other hand, live in preston, an area which is crazy expensive now and very sought after, and they have been broken in to more than 5 times and the last time, my brother was home when he heard someone trying to get in, went outside to chase the guy and the guy shot at him!! He was fine thankfully, but other people in the area have been reporting robberies/attempted robberies - it's not a safe area anymore.
