Toorak would have to be one of the most expensive areas of Melbourne - not unkown for mansions there to sell for more than AUD$10 million. Brighton along the bay would be a close second as far as price/exclusivity goes. Both suburbs have their share of business & entertainment heavyweights among their residents.

Canterbury is also another exclusive pocket, not as flashy as Toorak or Brighton, but more discreet.

Quite a few of the high-end sales are kept 'off market' i.e., not sold at auction, invitation only- inspections, confidentality agreements, etc.,

Some info...

Melton is a pretty expensive and high-class part of Melbourne. I've seen tinnies of VB go for $4.50 a pop at the racecourse there - outrageous!

Isn't putting the words "high-class" and "Las Vegas" in the same sentence a bit of an oxymoron?

You know it's only because they don't want the riff-raff from suburbs like Camberwell & Armadale going there & brining the tone of the place down!

Just wonder why you're asking, United Airline?

I'm in quite a good position to give you 'hard information' if you need advice on an actual move. I'm retired now, but I previously made a living building (and selling) real estate. And I happen to live in a place called Mentone - five miles south of Brighton, on Port Phillip Bay. In that connection, I'd agree with Melpax's view that the Melbourne 'Bayside' is arguably one of the best parts of Melbourne to live in. Prices are high, but not absolutely 'out of hand' like they are in Toorak; and you 'get your money's worth' in terms of views and amenity, and also having the City within easy reach. Plus steadily-rising property values.

Possibly also relevant (looking at your profile) that my 'landlord' is my daughter, who happens to live in Hong Kong.  

Give some more details if you actually need 'hard' advice?

Not really. There's a lot money in town, and it's a relatively "new" city, by American terms. If I had to live there, I'd probably be in Henderson. It's pretty low key, and not very flashy at all, but it's pretty new, has a lot of really great properties, and a very well developed infrastructure. Add to that, property can be had there very inexpensively (compared to neighboring Los Angeles). Though that last bit may disqualify from the "most expensive" bit...

It is an interesting question. Like darksnowynight says: LAS is a fairly new city. There are plenty of large homes and plenty of high priced hotels. Cosmopolitan and Bellaggio are on the high end. As far as neighborhoods go, I would think where Wayne Newton lives would be "the" neighborhood. National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation. My partner and I were just there beginning of January and it all pretty much looked the same. We flew from OAK and made a near circle over the city and it all looked the same to me: stucco McMansions, apartment buildings, strip malls, and wide boulevards. And a "hyroponics" store on South LV Boulevard. I mean, c'mon... are they really fooling anyone?

And some of the highest class areas of some cities is where some of the wildest people live. Their activities are hidden behind the walls. Remember walls keep things in as well as out.

As far as Vegas is concerned, I would think any real estate on the Summerlin and Shadow Creek golf courses should be right up there, especially in Tournament Hills. Not being a real estate professional, I can't quote averages, but there's no doubt several properties would sell for well over $10 millions.

If you are looking for something closer to the action (the Strip), a condo at the Mandarin Oriental, Veer or Turnberry Place ought to do it.

If hotels are what you are looking for, check out the Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Bellagio and Mansion.
