Spotlight on Mount Eliza

Did you know that the beach at Mt Eliza, just north of Mornington, was the scene for the Gregory Peck and Ava Gardener movie The Beach in the 1950s? Scenic walking trails winding around the jagged cliffs and coastline make for spectacular views, dotted with secluded beaches and bays.

Mount Eliza is located just one hour from the city, with older couples making up the majority of residents. The demographic is changing, with excellent academic institutions like Toorak College and the Melbourne Business College located within the leafy streets attracting families and younger people seeking both convenience and lifestyle.

Properties here are in high demand, with median house prices around $1.1 million and average rent for a three bedroom property coming in at around $650 per week.
