MENTONE

Get to know
the area

Just 22 kilometres from central Melbourne, this idyllic seaside suburb  feels a  universe away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Known for its tight-knit community feel, beachy vibes and prestigious schools, Mentone is particularly popular with ambitious young families and those looking to settle in for the long haul. Plus, with detour-worthy new cafés and shops regularly cropping up on their vibrant main strip, this blissful suburb’s stocks are only going to rise.

Lifestyle

Sporting an attractively shallow surf zone at the end of a picturesque curved bay, it’s easy to see why Mentone Beach became the foundation of a resort town in the late 1800s. Its natural beauty, backed by imposing high bluffs and year-round serenity, has been immortalised in significant paintings by the Heidelberg School art movement, including Charles Conder’s famed A Holiday at Mentone, one of Australia’s best loved Impressionist works.

These days Mentone has truly come into its own, transforming into a residential haven that appeals equally to ocean-loving millennials, growing families and comfortable retirees. An abundance of sporting groups, parks and playgrounds – not to mention the beach – mean the outdoors are a way of life here, while a lively main strip offers plenty of restaurants, cafés, bakeries, boutiques and grocers that make Mentone so visit-worthy.

Whenever you need it, you’ll find peace and quiet here, but there are also sparks of nightlife, you just need  to know where to look. Either way, Mentone’s direct neighbours of Cheltenham and Mordialloc mean that a huge, multi-storey shopping centre and a buzzy bar are never far away.

BAYSIDE STROLLS

The calm surf of Mentone Beach combined with the elegant curve of the bay make this seaside strip an attractive place to swim, but it’s also a stunning place for leisurely walks. You’ll get the most dramatic views during sunrise and sunset, as soft light bounces off the water and a peaceful atmosphere takes hold.

ACTIVE LIFESTYLES

The Mentone Beach Lifesaving Club and its year-round swim programs form the core of the active community, but they’re just the start. The suburb is home to countless sporting groups including tennis, cricket, football, hockey and even lawn bowling, so you’re never short of a way to get out and about.
