bonbeach Suburb Profile & Review

Bonbeach is a small bayside suburb in Melbourne's south-east. It was once favoured by holidaymakers in the 1920s, though today, visitors flock to the Patterson River and the lovely Bonbeach foreshore for water sports. The Patterson River Country Club also attracts golfers to its serene location beside the river.

From Bonbeach Station, residents can catch a train to Flinders Street on the Frankston line. Several shops and the Bonbeach cafe can be found on the Nepean Highway opposite the train station. The Bonbeach Sports Reserve on Cannes Avenue contains the Chelsea Basketball Stadium, five ovals, a public hall and a playground. Bonbeach Primary School has a preschool on the same site as the school building, which is very convenient for parents.

Parkdale Shopping Centre in Keysborough is about twenty minutes away, and a range of restaurants can be found at Harbour Plaza in nearby Patterson Lakes. The city is a little less than an hour's drive along the Nepean Highway, while daytrippers should note that beautiful Mornington Peninsula wineries are only forty minutes away.

bonbeach Income & Mortgage Stats

To calculate the percentage of income paid towards a mortgage for the suburb of Melbourne, multiply the mortgage payment (e.g. $2450) by 12 then divide this figure by the weekly income (e.g. $1200) multiplied by 52 (weeks) to look like this ($2450 x12/$1200 x 52) x 100 = 47%

Any figure above 30% usually indicates that the suburb you intend to buy in may have property owners with a high incidence of mortgage stress. In terms of maintaining or growing property values in the future and trying to secure a strong property price when selling, this could have an impact, especially in an economic or local industry downturn.
