Transport and Proximity

A gate to the city, North Melbourne’s boundaries meet Parkville, Carlton, West Melbourne, and Melbourne itself. A short stroll or bicycle ride south down King and William Streets means landing in the bustling CBD in no time, explaining the healthy rental demand from corporate professionals, academics, students, and night staff. With direct train lines branching across the metropolitan north and west (and beyond), North Melbourne station affords single-stop access to Flagstaff and Southern Cross stations, while Citylink allows rapid arrival on the other side of town. Medical practitioners favor the suburb, as the city’s major hospitals sit on North Melbourne’s border with Parkville and Melbourne city, with additional sites for the Royal Melbourne and Women’s hospitals confirmed for North Melbourne’s Arden precinct.

Aesthetic, Appeal, and History

North Melbourne encapsulates the famous culture Melbourne is known for. Offering some of the best value buys on the inner-city market, the area wears its industrial heritage with pride. Warehouses, factories, workshops, and showrooms take the form of beautiful brick freeholds, with opportunist eyes reimagining the properties into cutting-edge residential spaces with authentic old-world features. Highlighted by exquisite Victorian terraces and endearing workers’ cottages, the North Melbourne streetscape shows off its humble roots, with heritage overlays meaning the suburb remains true to itself. Slated for transformation, the proposed ‘Macaulay’ subdivision would optimize the suburb’s western edge, while not disrupting what it is that makes North Melbourne distinct.

Vibrancy and Lifestyle

At its most energetic when the sun sets, North Melbourne’s nightlife centres around the pubs, bars, and restaurants in the Errol Street precinct, spilling into adjacent Melbourne city and West Melbourne to ensure a great night, every night. Its residents primarily single socialisers, the area appeals to younger people and new families, thanks to a vibrant collection of venues and proximity to the city. Incredible coffee is available from sporadically appearing cafés like the rustic Roasting Warehouse, while ever-brimmed gastro pubs in the Leveson and Courthouse Hotel, along with the iconic Comic’s Lounge, attract crowds toward Errol Street from across the city.

Buzzing Wednesday night crowds make their way on foot to Queen Victoria Market to enjoy the best of global cuisines, while fresh produce and memorabilia is dealt daily to the masses.
