Deerpark, Sunshine (ironic as it may seem), Laverton and surrounds are probably best avoided.

What do you include in the "entire Western Suburbs" ?? If you are including Point Cook, Sanctuary Lakes and Seabrook, then I don't agree. Even parts of Werribee are nice.

As for places to avoid, Sunshine sounds nice until you drive through; it is really just a huge industrial estate.
