Located 30km southeast of Melbourne, this suburb is currently undergoing a program called Revitalising Central Dandenong, where more than $360m has been spent so far on infrastructure upgrades and other additions and improvements around the Dandenong CBD.

The area already boasts a healthy array of shops, education options and medical facilities.

Two and three-bedroom houses can be bought in these streets for less than $420,000.
