Bentleigh might just be able to win over your heart. This quiet suburb is located around Melbourne’s south eastern region, 15 km away from the city’s CBD. According to the 2011 Census, Bentleigh had a thriving population of 14,920 and 6,089 privately-owned homes. Take a look at why yours should be among them.

Family-friendly

Bentleigh continues to be a great location for full-sized families. The 2011 census reveals that more than half the families in the region are comprised of couples with children – higher than Victoria’s average. So what brings these people into the area?

It comes down to a fine balance of different factors. For one, there are a range of parks and green spaces in the area for children to enjoy, including Allnutt Park, Victory Park, Halley Park and the Bentleigh Reserve, where a war memorial also stands.

While it’s a comfortable, residential area, don’t make the mistake of thinking Bentleigh is a suburb with no buzz about – quite the opposite, in fact. Find yourself with time on your hands on a weekend or weeknight? Head on down to Centre Road, a strip of shops, cafes, grocery stores, retailers and more, that runs right through the middle of Bentleigh. So while the kids are at their footy game, you can kick back with a hot chocolate or go looking for some fresh ingredients for dinner from the local markets.

Like other suburbs within the region, Bentleigh is well-serviced by public transportation, making it snappy to get from A to B without needing to jump in a car. There are two easily-accessible train stations (Bentleigh and Patterson), as well as several bus routes in the area.
