Orientation of Living Areas and Bedrooms

Help! Where is the best orientation for the bedrooms and kitchen/living areas?

Our block is facing north to the street with backyard in the south. We are torn between placing the bedrooms on the west side of the house with the kitchen/living areas/garage in the east. I am not comfortable with this as summers get really hot here in Melbourne. However, when we think about it, we spend majority of the day in the kitchen/dining/living areas so do not want these areas to be receiving too much afternoon sun!

HELP! We need to confirm the layout soon and we haven’t come up with a decision! Thank you all in advance. Hope the attached photo helps.
