For the GOR, you can get a train to Geelong. From Apollo Bay, there is another bus that goes to Warrnambool. And then from Warrnambool, you can take the train back to Melbourne. The problem is that each of these only operates a few times a day, so, assuming you want to get off the bus and look around, it would take you a few days.
Another thing to remember is that it's not a HOHO service. Every time you get off and on the bus you have to buy another ticket. Much the same scenario for Phillip Island. There is a bus to Cowes from Southern Cross Station and there is a public bus on the island. But it doesn't run very frequently and so you would be spending the majority of your time waiting around for buses. To see the sights you need a car or a tour. Also if you want to include the Penguin Parade you have to stay overnight, there's no pt back to Melbourne when it finishes.
You will find a large selection if you search online. You probably won't find anything cheaper on the ground in Melbourne , although some of the backpacker travel shops attached to hostels have special deals.
It's perfectly possible to get to the island using the VLine bus but your transport on the island will be problematic. There is a taxi service on the island but I dare say it would be expensive to use it for too much traveling around.
You could easily rack up km going to various places on the island. You would need to stop overnight at Warrnambool and get the train back to Melbourne the next day.
Cons Anti-social behaviour Open drug problem Lack of community spirit hoons crime rate neighbours. I am planning to visit and live there for a while. DarrenP The train station may look very nice, but you will not get on a train after Ajith Thampi Hiya, me too would like to know which part of Tarneit gave you this bad experience.
PuneetA1 Its like any other growing suburb, Have its challanges but great to live,i have been living here from past 7 years with no issues. Pros 30 minutes from city New house.
Cons At the moment nead to take a Bus to the nearest Railway station. Recommended for Professionals Families with kids Retirees Students. Cons house and land size neighbours.

Cons Overall lower quality of life Low Capital Growth crime rate. Recommended for Hipsters Students Country Lovers. I recently moved to Tarneit three months ago and it is by far the best suburb I have lived in. The community is very kind and welcoming. Access to public transport, schools and shopping centres is very good although sometimes buses can come quite late , but overall it is a lovely suburb and I'd recommend to all people considering moving here.
CarlyR Hi, we are also looking to move to Tarneit.. I'm due for a baby soon and we aren't sure which parts of Tarneit are the safest and quietest? We were looking at Moorookyle area but then were told that it's "rough" and not recommended. So now we're confused! Please let me know which areas in Tarneit are the best: EvangeliaK Seasons Estate is probably the best estate in Tarneit due to the larger blocks, and mainly owner occupiers living there.
I would also consider the new estate around the train station. Once the tarneit town centre is completed, it will be great. Good luck with your new baby. We are planning to buy a property in Tarneit gardens conargo avenue. Please share your thoughts about the estate and the street.
StuartP Westbrook or Emerald Park estates in Tarneit will be the best in a few years time due to being right next to new train station, new town centre, and new schools. It is a fast developing community and has big potential. Buy while it's still affordable!
Duplicatn of leakes rd means traffic will improve. Tarneit station is opening very soon. Close to williams landing and werribee project has been improved. Moved from south east where houses are now overpriced. Good proximity to the city and airport. We have an sq block which is great but don't agree with council allowing developers to produce tiny housing blocks - to sq, this is happening in the outer suburbs all around Melbourne and will take from ideal of moving to the outer suburbs for space and will create congestion and possible slum.
Cons At the moment nead to take a Bus to the nearest Railway station hoons house and land size. Quiet, clean, safe and friendly. Graffiti, vandals, rubbish, bus stops constantly damaged. The kids that I have seen that attend the local schools are absolutly feral, this is why I drive my son an hour every day to another suburb for school. I can't wait to leave Tarneit to a more expensive suburb where the crazy ferals that are moving in to Tarneit can not follow.
Loved Tarneit at the start but this suburb is going down hill fast. Cons hoons crime rate. Maybe if you could afford the expensive schools in tarneit you wouldn't need to drive an hour, there are many good schools in the area - public and private. What planet are you on? LolaP yes exactly good schools like good news or tarneit college the grange. Cons At the moment nead to take a Bus to the nearest Railway station hoons.

Recommended for Professionals Families with kids Country Lovers. We are very happy with our new town Tarneit. Gosh how it has grown. Great shops, walking tracks, medical centres, schools, universities nearby, beaches nearby, just name it, Tarneit has it all. When it comes to dining, there is again so much to choose from nearby Watton Street, Point Cook and a great night out in the city is just 25 mins away!
All I can say is its a great suburb and a fantastic place to raise a family. Best place you can live in with so much more potential. Can't wait for the ferry service from Werribee to the City, that will be an awesome way to get to work! But all I heard was wrong. Great people great suburb. Only negative I can see is the peak hour traffic. Other than that all good. Love being able to get onto the highway for work with 5 minutes, not having to stop for traffic lights every minute or get stuck at intersections.
Plenty of private schools to chose from with many new public schools being opened also. Shops close by, with new mini-malls being built on every corner. Future Train station being built will increase propert values along with new roads and businesses. I relied on the Melway for most of my research on the suburb and its prospect for growth. Thank God they have implemented almost all the plans they originally proposed!!! I lived in the Eastern suburbs before moving here.
Through experience, I would consider Tarneit especially Rose Grange to be one of the best places for family with kids. Tarneit is very cosmopolitan and culturally diverse which makes it a great place to live in. My advice to any prospective home buyer is Do Not Miss Out on owning a house in Tarneit by simply listening to people giving negative feedback about this place Do the research yourself and weigh the pros and cons and compare it with other suburbs.
Pros Baden Powell College is as good as any private school my perspective A proposed shopping centre at the corner of Leakes RD and Derrimut Rd Tarneit will just get better over time New house 30 minutes from city Parksand Recreations and child care centers Plenty of Schools Railway Station under construction. Cons criminal activities in the nearby suburbs lack of beautiful trees and land marks hoons.
The cons everyone talks about are the same in any suburb, exception of lack of infrastructure around public transport and roads, but Tarneit is getting there considering the influx of new residents we are playing catch up. There are new clubs and shops being built now. So now is the time to buy as soon the prices will rise. Pros New house 30 minutes from city Plenty of Schools. There are 3 new shopping areas that are breaking grownd shortly. Recommended for Professionals Tourists Country Lovers.
Where I live closer to Hoppers it is very quiet. I agree that every area has good and bad but overall Tarneit has more good if you compare with other suburbs in Melbourne.
Before doing so decided to rent and see what the suburb was all about. Great big new house First week in - walk out the front door with my three year old to be confronted with several police cars. Stabbing across the street. Domestic Violence was the norm with our Neighbours to the back - makes for great entertainment christmas day with children and guests House near "recreation centre" growing drugs! Which brings me to the recreation centre if you could call it that!
People that own in the area did not seem to benefit as those who rented invited their friends in en masse. Horrified by behaviour of locals Cons Lack of infrastructure Very bad traffic and ease of access to city hoons house and land size crime rate neighbours. It is expected to experience an increase of over 36, people to 43, by ! The area is growing rapidly and of course just like any other area in melbourne or anywhere in the world, there will be domestic violence and drugs.
It is definitely not the NORM and we hardly hear of stabbings or drugs!!! As described by most residents it is quiet and peaceful and family orientated, maybe not as peaceful as a country village in the UK Not all of tarneit is like where you live maybe you should experience the real world and realise all different parts of ONE suburb can be different!!!!!
Danstar Having a bad neighbour isn't a reflection on the whole suburb Land sizes are small in every new estate that is coming up. If you want bigger land, pay the extra money to get it. Moved back to Australia and found my old suburb of Yarraville quite pricey already. Rented a 2 year old house in Tarneit facing a farm that offered me beautiful sunsets. Lovely neighbour too who mowed my lawn for me. BUT no good restaurants nearby. House got broken into within weeks. And the traffic into the city was horrific!
Packed up and left the day the lease expired. I hope never to go back! There are bit of peak hour traffic problems, but that issue is no different to any other Melbourne suburb. Off peak time, it's a smooth 30 minute drive to city. Tarneit overall has a family area feel to it, with nice parks and housing in every estate. The only estate that is known to have some trouble is the Moorokyle Estate in Tarneit. You will find a very high percentage of houses in Moorokyle estate being put of for sale or rent as compared to other estates.
The nearby estates like Tarneit Gardens and The Rise estates are heaps better. I have recently moved from away from Moorokyle estate to The Rise estate which is also serviced by Bus route Recent upgrades to Leakes road has eased traffic on Sayers Road and it is easy to commute to city by Leakes Road. I reckon tarneit is the place to buy your own home.
You will see a steady increase in the house prices. But I would not recommend investing because there is already more than required properties up for rent which is causing high vacancy rate and rental discounts.
Depends if you like all your neighbours living in garages. A high population or maoris that live in there garage. Witch does get to be annoying when your house is pretty much ontop of them. We stay away from the country club as its full of weridos. We cant wait untill we move out of here.. Aussi Me and my husband are planning to move on a rental property at Hamish Drive Tarneit. Can anybody tell what sort of area is that??? We have a 12 months old son. So bit worried after reading reviews about the area.
I live here and everythign is very nice and peaceful Not too far from city, good lifestyle for families. Safe, peaceful and relaxing. Get in while you can as prices are sky rocketing. We absolutely love it. Can't find any flaws so far at all.
We also came from the south eastern side of town. There are so many school options for children. I am only naming a few of which I know are really good schools but there are many more to choose from.
Personally we would love to send the kids to Westbourne but it is extremely pricy. Our kids go to Westgrove and are very happy. Shops are everywhere but the Werribee Plaza and the Tarneit shopping centre would have to be the best choice. The Plaza is being extended so plans are that it will be twice the size soon. Tarneit will have 2 railway stations which are currently under construction. At the moment you can use the Hoppers Train station which is again between 5 - 10 minute drive depending on where you live or you can catch the bus.
The roads are being improved and we expect further improvements in the next few years. Our neighboors are lovely, keep to themselves but are quite friendly, not that many rental properties near where we live, close to Hogans Road. We love going bike riding to the river with the kids and the local restaurants on Watton Street are great.
There is again so much to choose from: Greek, Italian, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese to name a few and some great steak and pub meals at the aussie restaurants. The marina is also under construction and there will a ferry to the city, another exciting project. We are close to some of melbourne's best tourist spots, the great ocean road, the werribee mansion, the open range zoo, the river, the coast and the list goes on I agree with most of the other reviews, overall its a great place to raise a family.
New estates, tree lined streets, beautiful homes. It has been cleverly designed for growing families. The area is new but don't let this fool you. An easy 30 minute drive to the city, easily accessible to some of melbourne's most popular tourist attractions including the open range zoo, the great ocean road, point cook coastal park and so much more. Take a bike road to the werribee river, or to the beach, there is so much to do when you get out there. Only downside which is short term is public transport and some roads which are still being built, these will improve over time.
Like most areas, you will get some bad with the good but generally speaking can't fault it. We have been here 2 years and we love it! Cons Roads under construction Public Transport.
If you want to compare something to Toorak may be look at something in williamstown. You must have never been to Toorak before to be comparing it to tarneit.
Nothing alike not to be rude but you need to wake up!!!!!!!! If your wanting an area like Toorak then go to williamstown. Everyone has the right to love the area they live in, you obviously don't agree and thats fine but let others have their opinion. BlessedM Better than Toorak, actually!! Danstar Maybe cos they both start with a T? And Ive lived near toorak. Id actually Choose Tarneit over toorak.
You think crime rate is high in Tarneit? Have you walked the streets of toorak at night? Currently from the east to the west side of Tarneit can be around 10 min by Car.
The older parts of the suburb now have a bit more infrastructure, plenty of schools, places for take out dinners, food shopping etc.
As for the newer parts I gather that is all still in development. My neighbours are nice and tend to help each other as there are less renters in the older parts of Tarneit.
Overall I quite happy living here and its great to know that if we ever have kids Westbourne collage and Thomas Carr Collage would be my first options. A new police station was built a little over a year ago on the corner of Derimut and Sayers roads opposite the BP service station which is handy. A great place to live: Also the Older parts generally have larger blocks as well which is nice.
Cons No close places for a drink eg bars or coffee shops but Point Cook is close At the moment nead to take a Bus to the nearest Railway station. And I have no problems and loving it. This suburb houses over 20, Indians, especially with its low cost of renting. This suburb has also had its share of criminal activities, youth rampage, burglaries and home invasions.
And lack of end-to-end bus-stops further aggravates safety for Tarneit residents. BT has identified over 30 localities where the people cannot access bus-stops within meter of walk. The maximum walking distance one has to cover can go as much as 2.
But we went through some serious problems and switched back to car.
