The lifestyles and people of Bentleigh

By Siobhan Hawken

The lifestyle of a suburb is often influenced by who lives there.

South-east of the city, Bentleigh is a family-friendly area with plenty of schools and parks, a bustling shopping strip and good proximity to bayside beaches.

Bentleigh lies less than 15kms south-east of the CBD. It’s a laidback area studded with parks and schools, perfect for families. Centre Road is the main thoroughfare, a cute, busy shopping strip packed with produce stores and cosy cafes. Scoot across the Nepean Highway and you’re on Brighton Beach in a flash.
