Default Please suggest a suburb in Melbourne.

Hi dear forum members.
I know this has been asked several times previously and I am sorry for that. I have gone through those posts but I need it all comes down to one's personal circumstances so I am writing this post.

I am looking for renting a house. We are a family of 3, me my wife and a 2 y/o with one on the way. We are looking to rent a home in a quite and safe area. I work in the CBD and rely on public transport so looking for something close to train/bus stations. But more importantly, I want it to be safe with least possible crime rate. My range for renting is $250-275/week, and I am comfortable with upto an hour of train commute.

So far I have narrowed down Hampton park, Narre Warren, Burwick and surrounding areas in the east, Werribee, Hoppers crossing, Altona etc in the west. Footscray, sunshine north, deer park, ardeer, taylors lakes. I am living in footscray right now but am not comfortable living there. Only benefit I see there is its close proximity to the CBD.

Please suggest which one of these areas is better with respect to less crime rate and beeing more family friendly (has parks etc.). Or if you have any other suggestions, please let me know.

You may be comfortable in areas like Caulfield, Carnegie, Clayton, Coburg, Essendon or any of the stations on the Sandringham line. These are quite safe and easy to reach the CBD too. Plenty of shopping areas and well populated, so they are quite safe.
