Newport is a quiet suburb with only one through destination being Williamstown so not a great deal of traffic.
Elphin St is a peaceful street with a mixture of early Melbourne architecture, often renovated, along with a mix of properties through the decades.
There are parks and great walks nearby along with some awesome local restaurants and cafes. Newport Park and the Yarra river are pretty much at the end of the street and you can walk down to Williamstown along the Strand for shopping, meals and attractions.
Very well situated for trains and buses with Newport station being at the end of the street. As this station is the junction for trains to Werribee and Williamstown there is always a ready supply of trains heading to those destinations as well as the city. Buses also leave from next to the station to many destinations including Altona Gate shopping centre.
Access to the Westgate Freeway is 5 minutes down the road with alternate routes into the city also available.
A nice way to get into the centre of Melbourne is via the Williamstown Ferry service which travels up the Yarra under the Westgate bridge and into Berth 1 at Southgate next to the Elizabeth St walk Bridge.
