"So convient to everywhere"

I love living on Church St(over 1 year)- everything you want is within easy reach. Generally, there's alot of character that comes with it. I'll admit, my apartment is to the back of a block and is therefore very quite and peaceful when i want it to unwind. Those living directly on the street may be kept awake with the old rickety trams. Want to go somewhere fast - these trams will not seems like as much fun as they are to the me generally.
There's loads of cafes, bars, restaurants shopping within easy reach but it's also extremely easy to pop into the city. Stay on the trams brings you up to South yarra and St Kilda - easy(but generally slow)! You've also got a well stocked library near swan for book worms. Gyms galore for those sport inclined. Yarra leisure over great membership deals to the gym, swimming pool and Burnley golf club...
Security wise, i've never had any trouble where i am, and have never felt threatened(but i tend not to worry too much).

All in all, if you have little responsibility, and want to make the most of your freetime, Richmond is a pretty good place to be.

"Some great shopping and good eateries, although traffic is a nightmare!"

Church Street is really the major connector of Kew to Prahran. It's a bit of a thoroughfare with traffic being very heavy at peak times, and to be honest, traffic is never light.

On the flip side, there are some really good places to eat along Church Street such as Keith's Pies. Church St does connect some major streets in the area such as Bridge Road, Chapel Street and Swan Street all of which are fantastic locations. Great area to live in if you can find a decent place to rent.
