Where can I board my cat in Melbourne?

We need to put our cat in a cattery while we take a month-long overseas trip. We've never done this before. Anyone have any recommendations for a cattery in Melbourne, Australia? And what indicates a good or a bad cattery?

The cat is about eight years old, desexed male, up to date on all his shots. Normally we try to get someone to look after him in-house when we're away, but four weeks is a bit long, and he is a big sook so he tends to be a whinger when we're not around. Not having done the cattery thing, I don't know where to take him; the local vet boards cats but they just have small cages. I know I should look for something with a bit of space, natural light, a vet on call... any other tips for cattery-hunting?
