Transport and Proximity

A waterside suburb covering a substantial, undulating area, Maribyrnong gives residents easy access to plentiful lifestyle attractions. The suburb’s closest point approx. 6km from the CBD, it borders prestigious localities of Aberfeldie, Moonee Ponds, Ascot Vale, Essendon West, and Avondale Heights, along with esteemed multicultural hubs of Footscray, Flemington, and Maidstone. Close to CBD-bound transport and arterial roads, the area is home to one of Australia’s largest retail precincts, with Highpoint Shopping Centre a bustling complement to the picturesque Maribyrnong River below. Recently developed, hill-set apartment complexes have ensured widespread access to uninterrupted city views, with evergreen rental demand attributable to students of the nearby Victoria University.

Aesthetic, Appeal, and History

Maribyrnong offers an eclectic display of homes, ranging from modest mid-century brick veneer to avant-garde mansions with absolute river frontage. A popular subsection of the vast area, Edgewater sits to the suburb’s east, sloping from the hill of Gordon Street, down to its river-intertwined marina. Approaching two decades since the spot was reimagined, homes fetch between one and three million dollars, with its lack of through traffic allowing locals uninterrupted living by the water. Maribyrnong’s most exclusive streets sit between Maribyrnong Road and the local river, growing in esteem as one approaches the waterfront, where the Chifley Drive yard and tennis courts of Esplanade homes meet the river trail. The accomplished Maribyrnong College underpinning the suburb’s image as family-friendly, Maribyrnong is enjoyed equally by young singles, professionals, and retirees, who all contribute to the area’s multiethnic allure.

Vibrancy and Lifestyle

Exhibiting profound indigenous importance, the breathtakingly beautiful Maribyrnong River attracts thousands to its banks every day. Sweeping expanses of lush greenery mean there’s always a quiet spot to be at one with nature, with the body of water stretching for 160km from its Mt Macedon origins. Its name an anglicised take on the Woiwurrung ‘Mirring- gnay-bir-nong’ (‘I can hear a ringtail possum’), the banks of the Maribyrnong make for idyllic sunrise strolls, with locals circling back to grab great coffee at any one of many terrific cafés. Often enjoyed before heading to Maribyrnong’s other marquee magnet, the spectacular sights of the river sit below the towering heights of Highpoint Shopping Centre: a fore and background contrast perfect for canvas. Whilst Highpoint boasts a fantastic selection of good restaurants, the authentic Thonglor Thai on Edgewater Boulevard is a well kept secret.  The iconic Anglers Tavern (circa 1860) sits proudly on the banks of the Maribyrnong River and is a popular pub for all ages.  Leaning on multiculturalism, the suburb’s residents regularly cross area borders for delectable dining, with the area’s most popular restaurants and bars spread across Footscray, Ascot Vale, and Moonee Ponds.
