Guys,

Can't help but notice in the press and online the mayhem that is now part of Melbourne life and a almost daily basis.

Can anyone recommend Caravan parks in Melbourne where we can feel safe and which has sufficiently secured perimeter fences?

Where are the areas that the attacks are most likely?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Warrandyte is a nice caravan park in an outer suburb. Not much crime in the area and would be fine. You might be a bit over concerned I think. Can't vouch for any other areas as not familiar.
Hope you come and see the good in our city.
Cheers,
Christine

The best thing about Melbourne is the ring road. Access to most parts us relatively easy.
Based on that uf you are visiting the city, chose locations like Kilmore, warrandyte as mentioned, Geelong, Hastings etc and drive into the city then out again.

I think any park that does not have many permanents would be OK.

We travel to Melbourne fairly regularly, and every stay is at the Big 4 at Braybrook. Large perimeter fencing and security, well laid out and convenient to supermarket, pubs, and a bus stop out front. We've been staying there for more than 5 years as its just off the Ballarat road which is perfect for us travelling from SA. Wouldn't think of staying elsewhere as it ticks all our boxes.

That is where we stayed prior to going to Tasmania. Is has changed ownership since then, and the price has zoomed up :O.

It was quiet, and as you say convenient with bus stop and shops adjacent, and easy access to all directions via the ring road. We never felt any security risk.

You're right Motherhen, the prices have definitely headed north. They've built some swish apartments down the rear and I gathered the increase in fees was to help paying for those ;) While there might be cheaper parks around, the ease of getting in and out of the park with a caravan was simply something we couldn't overlook. So we'll be back.

Point taken. Makes me so angry, but that involves issues better discussed elsewhere.
