Unfortunately as others have said, those suburbs are cheap for a reason. I would spend a bit more/downsize and go Altona or somewhere else a little closer in, OR get a lovely big place in Bacchus Marsh. I think in the outer suburbs you're looking at there will be very little to do- I'd either get closer to the action, or be in a smaller town where you can meet locals easier, take a stroll to the shops for a coffee, etc. Bacchus Marsh is still not too far from Willy, I've never driven that way in peak hour but it might be worth checking out.

The houses in Williams Landing are nicer than ones I have seen in tarneit/trug. They are also a far bit more costly. Tarneit/trug around the $310-$330 mark for 4 beds and Williams Landing closer to the $350-390 price range. I am wondering if it is pricer there because there is meant to be a train station opening in April this year.
The closer we get to DHs work the more we can stretch our budget a little because of less petrol etc. But $400 would be our absolute limit. I will have a look in altona meadows. Altona North would be great but there doesnt seem to be a lot available.

Melbourne suburb advice
Just a thought, but what about ascot vale, Kensington or the surrounds. It is about 20 mins to Williamson and close to the city as well. If possible maybe go the area you are interested in to do your shopping, sit in a cafe or park etc just to get a feel for the place before you commit to a particular spot?
