Turn up the sunshine
While Sunshine may have a bit of a bad rep in the past, it's good to remember that so did Port Melbourne and Williamstown not all that long ago. Certainly many of those who live in Sunshine have a pretty positive view. Here are some good reasons why you might like to visit:
Atlas holds up the world in front of the Village Cinemas
There's a huge multiplex of Village cinemas (17 traditional and 3 gold class) so whatever you want to see, it's likely to be available. There's plenty of parking around the cinemas (a lot of it free) and a huge array of places to eat in the town centre, marketplace and plaza ranging through Vietnamese, Afghan, Syrian, Italian, Turkish cuisines and more. There's also a games arcade in the cinema to keep the kids entertained.
You're not going to stumble upon Buckingham Reserve by accident but should you go to the effort of finding it - tucked away in the middle of an industrial heartland - you'll be quite amazed by this little piece of (urban) country life. The reserve is bordered by Kororoit Creek and while the creek is not as pristine as a country version and its banks are still in the process of being beautified, it's still an amazingly peaceful, tree filled environment for a stroll or a picnic. Within the reserve there's also a kids playground, shelters, bbqs, toilets and walking tracks.

We're mostly not talking fine dining here but rather cheap and delicious. With around 40 cafes and restaurants the problem is really which to choose. Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, African, Polish, Italian, Turkish? Certainly the range of Vietnamese eateries could rival Richmond and Footscray plus it's way easier to park in Sunshine.
As far as the future goes, Sunshine station has had a major upgrade, the shopping centre is in the middle of a building frenzy and the council has plans for the revitalisation of the town centre. For more good reasons to visit see here for information on fun local events such as the Sunshine Street Market, Sunshine Short Film Festival and Sunshine Pho Fever.
That is kind of very good info about the sunshine. Me to from Melbourne but didn't know this much about it. There are many good thing for daily leaving. I came to know about one store named Baby-Direct which is i think one of the best baby products store. You can visit its online store at :http://www.baby-direct.com.au/
