Moorabbin is situated about 15 km south-east of Melbourne within easy commuting distance of the city. The suburb was largely established after world war 2 at which time house and land prices were incredibly cheap by today’s standards and those who have held on have really benefited from buying early on. Whilst it is not an inner suburb, it is still very accessible by train or car and attracts a diversity of people, including of course, mobility scooter users. It is a quiet suburb in general which does not “do” nightlife although there are certainly local fun attractions such as 2 Brothers Brewery. Kingston Council is proactive in prompting accessibly for those with disabilities. Local mobility scooter user Joyce says “My parents moved here after the war and brought their property for a song. We still live here, not far from my original family home and I’ve always liked this area- it’s quiet and safe, with excellent medical services right through the suburb. A highlight for nature lovers like me is the Karkarook Park with its lake, walking trails, barbeque areas and more and I like getting out there on my mobility scooter whenever the weather is good”.
