"Noisy trams but in generally a convenient peaceful area"

Being so close and accessible to Carlisle street in Balaclava is the major bonus of this street. The tram runs straight down to it. Carlisle street is one of my favorite streets in melbourne, with plenty of cafes and shops to such you in for the day. There's a couple of madhatters around to keep you entertained too.

Because it can pick up some speed, i found the tram to be noisy at first but soon got used to it. Besides that, the area is very peaceful. There's also a really good oesteopath at the orrong junction - Dr Sexton.
