Transport and Proximity

A step removed from the all-night bustle while only a short walk away whenever the mood strikes, Parkville is the inner- northern choice for the city’s most accomplished and respected. Its lush expanses encompassing Melbourne’s major hospitals, it’s only moments from the city centre; Elizabeth Street a continuation of the arterial and beautiful Royal Parade. Noted for its bicycle and tram-friendly layout, residents need not rely on cars to get everywhere, typically a trait of Melbourne’s more frenetic pockets. Royal Park station sits only one stop from Brunswick’s effervescent Sydney Road, while offering easy public access to Parkville’s marquee attractions, Melbourne Zoo and the State Netball & Hockey Centre.

Aesthetic, Appeal, and History

Adored for its tranquil streetscapes, Parkville is home to a myriad of the city’s most charismatic homes and parklands. Buyers have always fallen in love with its old architecture, with daily passers-by marking it as the spot for their ‘one day’ dream home. An allure that is entirely its own, Parkville’s charm is amplified in Autumn months, when broad expanses of green transform into vibrant oranges, reds, and browns, illuminating why people buy to stay for good. Victorian elegance adorns the suburb, with the most enviable of local streets comprising undisturbed terraced facades with tastefully updated interiors, particularly along the esteemed Park Drive, Story Street, and surrounds. A haven for the trained architectural eye, the globally revered University of Melbourne offers some of the city’s most commanding constructions, with 19th century Queen’s, Trinity and Ormond residential college buildings hailed as some of the city’s most iconic designs. Deemed the ideal spot for the 2006 Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village, Parkville’s west features approximately 1,000 modern homes, spread across a sleepy locale on the Moonee Ponds border.

Vibrancy and Lifestyle

As Parkville leases are rare and pricey when available, adjoining suburbs exhibit more energetic, student-driven nightlives, accentuating what it is that makes Parkville so loved: its contrasting calmness. A stunningly serene spot to enjoy a Tuesday afternoon espresso, with leafy layouts and pleasant neighbours. While uncertain, most attribute the suburb’s name to the vast Royal Park, in which sporting ovals, manicured gardens, and seemingly boundless grasslands stretch to meet Brunswick in the north, North Melbourne in the south and west, and Travancore in the northwest. An attraction for city-wide residents and sportspeople, its sun-soaked acres host Royal Park Golf Course and Royal Park Tennis Club, along with countless impromptu picnics and gatherings.

The Locale and Reputation

Deemed the most refined suburb of Melbourne’s inner-north, Parkville projects a unique feeling of sophisticated comfort, offering shades of lavish East Melbourne; equally as loved by the successful and discreet.
