City of Bayside

With its beautiful beaches, high-performing schools, thriving boutique shopping precincts, and leafy streets, Bayside is one of Melbourne’s most prized residential regions.

Offering the perfect blend of coastal living mere kilometres from the CBD, Bayside remains one of Melbourne’s most aspirational destinations. The jewel in Bayside’s crown – its beautiful beaches, piers, baths and bathing boxes – have long been a drawcard to locals and visitors alike. Bayside boasts a great mix of housing to suit every lifestyle, from the late 18th-century mansions of Brighton, to the chic townhouses of Beaumaris and Black Rock, and the family homes of Cheltenham, Highett and Sandringham. Vibrant boutique shopping precincts in Brighton’s Church and Bay streets, Beaumaris Concourse, Hampton St, and Sandringham and Highett villages provide the perfect blend of cafes, cuisine, fashion and homewares, further complemented by Southland Shopping Centre.
