Transport and Proximity

Stretching to border Ascot Vale, Travancore, Parkville, North Melbourne, and Kensington, it’s only 4km or a few train stops from the centre of Melbourne, promoting its lively city-fringe character. Arriving in no time at the Queen Victoria Market and bustling Elizabeth Street, the CBD-bound 59 tram offers easy access to Flemington Road’s major hospitals – a key reason for Flemington’s healthy rental demand.

Aesthetic, Appeal, and History

Reminiscent of its northern equivalents in Fitzroy and Collingwood, the area comprises a comparatively high proportion of refreshed Victorian and Edwardian homes. Trademark century-old trees meet to make for picturesque streetscapes, none more stunning than Lee, Brighton, and Waltham streets, as well as surrounds. While unmistakably prestigious, locals hold a common sentiment that the unpretentious suburb remains undervalued, providing some of the savviest buys in Melbourne. Those who purchase a home in Flemington, stay there.

Vibrancy and Lifestyle

Amenities aplenty, it’s a popular pocket for the cool crowd of new families, young singles, professional couples, and creatives, together contributing to modern-day Flemington’s energetic atmosphere. Spread around the urban locality of Newmarket, an eclectic array of cuisines attracts people from all corners, with crowds flocking to Japanese, Somali, Italian and Arabic restaurants. A local staple, Malaysian institution Laksa King sees queues wrap around Pin Oak Crescent each night, while supermarkets, two individual shopping centres and chic cafés assure easy living.

The Locale and Reputation

Complementing a broad range of lifestyle options, Racecourse Road connects the lush expanses of Royal Park with the world-famous Flemington Racecourse, the latter paramount in the suburb’s development. The home of the $14 million Melbourne Cup, the 1840-built course sits between the thriving activity precinct and blissful Maribyrnong River, lending esteem to its neighborhood backdrop. The adjacent Melbourne Showgrounds lure giant crowds for popular exhibitions, with the Royal Melbourne Show running strong since its inception in 1855.
