Melbournes 'hardship' suburbs

Albert Park? yeah, right.

When I read the topic of the thread, I thought it was referring to the "down and out" section of the community - the "battlers".

Albert Park etc are not "hardship" suburbs; they are suburbs where higher earners with no financial brains buy, I'd say.

The rest of the areas such as North Frangers are more than likely lower earners with no financial brains either, and/or consist of a "healthy" volume of welfare areas.

In fairness, these areas are less likely to get ahead due to lack of funds/income; hence the "hardship" tag.
