The suburb of Brunswick is only 6km north of Melbourne's CBD.
The house is located only a few minutes' walk from all public transport options including trains direct to the city, trams down both Sydney Road and Lygon Street and buses travelling east and west. The house is only a 20 minute walk or three train stops from the world renowned Melbourne Zoo. Also within easy walking distance is the iconic Sydney Road - the longest continuous shopping strip in Melbourne. With an abundance of small businesses and a variety of restaurants and cafes, fashion boutiques, book shops, discount shopping and specialty food stores, you will never have to venture far from the house to enjoy the cosmopolitan lifestyle that Brunswick has to offer. Continue a little further down Sydney Road by tram and Victoria's premier open air Queen Victoria Market awaits you. A short tram ride away is leafy Lygon Street, a place where Melbourne's famous cafe culture was born. Beautiful Victorian terraces provide a backdrop for lovers of coffee and those dining al fresco at the famed Little Italy restaurant precinct. A variety of cake shops and gelati bars tempt visitors as they spill from the theatres, cinemas and galleries of this vibrant area.
If you are travelling by car, the house is couple of minutes drive from Citilink and only 20 minutes from Tullamarine Airport.
