The street is a quiet suburban one, fully avenued by trees. We are close to the CBD but not in it. Altona is located 13km west of Melbourne with excellent road and rail links and a bike path through to the river and CBD (20 mins by car; 35 mins by train; and 50 mins by bike). The station is 700m and the freeway 2km away.
Altona beach is a main attraction as is Pier St, which includes shops, cafes, restaurants, a gymnasium and a beautiful park. For other attractions including a good golf course go to http://www.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au/Experience_Hobsons_Bay website.
We also have a pair of good Giant bikes for use; check the coastal trail and other bike paths out here:
Our home is:

10km from two major shopping malls/centres, with cinema complexes
10kms from Melbourne's Open range zoo
