Understand[edit]

Brighton is a popular beach suburb amongst both Melburnians and tourists alike. During the Summer, finding somewhere to lay down your towel on the beach can be a difficult task, as thousands flock the suburb on hot days. In addition, Brighton Beach is known for its famous, brightly-coloured bathing boxes which line the beach for hundreds of metres.

Caulfield is the location of Monash University and the Caulfield Racecourse.

Cranbourne is a booming growth area, and the site of Melbourne's other Royal Botanic Gardens.

Dandenong is a thriving multicultural city, often considered Melbourne's second CBD. It is home to strong Afghan, Indian and African communities, which are reflected in its variety of shops and restaurants.

Pakenham is another fast-growing suburb, and a gateway to the nearby Gippsland region.

Springvale is a multicultural suburb renowned for its Vietnamese culture.
