Along with suburbs like Carlton, Fitzroy, Collingwood and Richmond, North Melbourne offers a true city-edge lifestyle with all the benefits of living a kilometre or two from the heart of town. It also has its own epicentre of cultural activity around the vibrant Errol Street district with its choice of fine restaurants, cafés and boutique shops plus there are the exciting sights, smells and sounds of world-famous Queen Victoria Market. Public transport options within the suburb are excellent with multiple tram and train services enabling the briefest of journeys into the CBD – if there isn’t time to walk! Citylink access at either Dynon or Racecourse Roads also provides locals with excellent access to Melbourne’s extensive freeway/tollway system. Given the number of quality education facilities in the area and its zoning to University High School, North Melbourne is a very popular destination for families, and although the suburb is full of 19th century single-front homes and modern warehouse/factory conversion townhouses, there are a significant number of larger abodes to accommodate these larger households. Its proximity to Melbourne University also makes North Melbourne a popular investment area with a constant stream of students looking to rent close to the uni precinct.
