Suburb profile: Mentone, VIC 3194

Mentone is located approximately 21km south-east of Melbourne's CBD

Locals say they love the area because of its abundance of parks and trees, with the local council maintaining everything nicely.

It is known locally for Mentone Beach, which extends alongside Beaumaris Bay from the cliffs in Beaumaris and ends at Warrigal Road where it meets Parkdale.

A popular area for families, Mentone is within the zone of many top Bayside schools, attracting affluent families. It's a safe and beautiful suburb, close to the beach, all shops you would need and has a great sense of community.

Mentone is home to a lively shopping area along Como Parade West, Balcombe Road and surrounding streets and laneways. This shopping strip offers a wide range of restaurants, cafes, bakeries, clothing stores, supermarkets, travel agents, fancy dress, craft, home, book stores and more. A second commercial area has grown along Nepean Highway; this may expand as the former Nylex factory site between Nepean Highway and Warrigal road is redeveloped into a bulky goods retail precinct.

After a successful year-long trial in 2015 for a 24-hour off-leash dog zone, the 450-metre sandy stretch between Charman and Plumer Roads is now officially a dog beach. While it can get busy during peak times, it's a popular spot for catching up with other dogs and chasing seagulls. Just remember to keep your dog on a leash until you hit the sand.

Neighbouring suburb, Cheltenham, comprises one of the biggest shopping centres in Australia – Westfield Southland. This shopping mall incorporates a two-level bridge that spans the six lanes of Nepean Highway. It is the main shopping centre for people of Mentone and surrounds. A new train station opened in 2017 on the west side of Southland near Bay Street. DFO is also within an easy driving distance.
