Melbourne Map with Suburb stats

hi ,

Was wondering if there are good Melbourne maps online that are printable and shows all suburbs stats like median prices/population schools etc. I can use it to visualize our house hunting. I know online maps are available but we want something to see and stick and mark etc.

Any ideas/help is appreciated.

    That's a futile way to approach buying a home.

    Proximity to work, proximity to family/friends, and price would be your first consideration.

    No map can plot a algorithmically perfect compromise for you.

    Once you've shortlisted a few suburbs, you'll then consider things like a big house on a small block vs small house on a big block. Old house vs new.

    Realistically, you can very quickly shortlist to a single municipality very quickly and from there, 2-3 suburbs.

    (Unless you don't have to work and you can afford anything… In that case, Toorak for inland, Brighton for Coastal.)

    • Yeah, realistically, you’re not looking at the whole of Melbourne when you’re buying a house. Who cares what the population density of South Morang is if I’m not even interested in buying anywhere near there?

  • There is, but I dont think you'll like the price tag. It's I've seen it at work professionally and it's crazy how much detail they have on suburbs and extremely high resolution aerial photography.

      +1 use this at work, thank god i don't have to pay for it.
      Otherwise if you're handy at GIS you can quite easily make one.

      I think there are .KMZ files you can download and import into Google Earth that show these figures though.

      • Agree. I used GIS when looking. Did some catchment mapping and plotted my key destinations. It was very useful.

        If youre rich, go live in rich areas. If youre poor, live in poor areas.

        If you dont know, youre poor.

    Free tools like Walkscore may help as they identify proximity to key services. But you need to search by each address.

    Not the Melbourne stats I had in mind. (thank goodness)

    This might be of some use Melbourne’s most liveable suburbs for 2019 revealed amid a few surprises

    Research on-line and buy an old Melways from the Op shop to mark your choices.

      • I get all of those except Kooyong. It's like 50 houses next to a freeway, how is it even a suburb?

    Think this is the closest you'll find. Very useful suburbs stats site:

  • thanks, everyone for commenting. first home buyers so we don't know where we will end up. hence the request. I think we will start with one direction then expand.

    If you want to mark things up, you might be best to get a melway? They have the front page with metro Melb that you can put little dots, then go into more detail on the actual page?

    Alternatively I think melway sell poster maps too on their website?

    Not a printed product, but some of the state government data on the points you've highlighted can be mapped online at myVictoria.
