Welcome To The Neighbourhood: Hampton East


Located 14km south-east from Melbourne’s CBD, Hampton East is not only home to our Hampton East office, but it also has exceptional proximity to public transport, Southland Shopping Centre, a growing number of trendy bars and cafes and has some of the best family friendly parks just a short stroll away.

Are you thinking of making a move? Let's dive in to why moving into the Hampton East area could be your best move yet. 


Prominently positioned between Hampton, Moorabbin and Highett, Hampton East is one of Melbourne’s Bayside gems. While you may not be able to see the bay from your front door, the water is certainly within walking distance of home, or a short trip on public transport.

Our Hampton East office’s very own Director Paul Sibley is an expert on the Hampton East area and says it is the place to be as it is continually developing and new businesses are popping up every week, it is still affordable compared to the exclusive neighbouring suburbs of Hampton, Sandringham, and Brighton, and it is also a tightly held and small suburb only 5 minutes’ drive to the water!

Paul is also a lover of the popular Basterfield Park, it is perfect for kids, picnics, and special events with beautiful parklands, a lake, and playgrounds.


Food Scene

It is no surprise that this “not so” hidden gem of a suburb has some of the most delicious restaurants surrounding the area, an office favourite would have to be Favourite Dumpling and Noodle on Nepean Highway, a definite go to for your dumpling cravings.

Pop on your walking shoes and head to the next suburb over, Highett and your taste buds will start tingling. A growing number of trendy bars and cafés keep popping up; perhaps an early morning coffee at The Diplomat Café, or an afternoon drink at the cool Hawker Bar could entice? Then head to dinner for something spicy at the resident Mexican restaurant Hot Lips Hacienda.

In Hampton East, you’ll also be close to Brighton, Sandringham & Hampton with Church Street Brighton, Station Street Sandringham & Hampton Street Hampton all around the corner with every possible cuisine waiting for you to visit and try.


If you’re looking to be in the zone of some of Bayside’s best schools, you will not be disappointed with St Leonard’s College, Kilvington Grammar School & Brighton Grammar School just around the corner, making Hampton East a very popular area for families.



Whether you’re downsizers, first-home buyers or busy professionals, Hampton East is known to have it all! Historical homes, new builds, units, and homes waiting for you to renovate and make your own.
