Ripponlea is a tiny, triangle-shaped suburb only 7 kilometers southeast of Melbourne's CBD. This tiny neighborhood is decorated with green parks filled with happy children and young couples. Residents don’t have much in the way of local shops so they depend on the scores of shops, restaurants, and entertainment options found in Melbourne proper. Housing-wise, you'll find a mix of affordable Victorian style homes and updated apartments. 

Ripponlea is bordered on the north by Balaclava, on the east by Elsternwick, on the south by Brighton, and on the west by Elwood.
