It's no surprise Melbourne's South East has been dominating the property market, as the lure of bayside ambience continues to draw buyers in. This year, Data VIC reported a staggering 67% price growth since 2013 for the area.

The busy hub not only holds a population of nearly 100,000, but is home to sports, retail, real estate and industrial Head Offices. 

Only a 30-minute drive to the CBD, Bayside welcomes creative and corporate business owners looking for fresher air than the ‘big smoke’ but still only a stone’s through from the city and surrounding areas.

Director of CVA’s Southern Region, John Nockles, has curated his top list of things to do and places to see for businesses on the hunt for a new office that embraces the beachside lifestyle.
