"A family paradise close to the city"

Caulfield North is a reasonable area not too far from the city with good public transport access.
Close by there are all the main shops you could need and if its not at the local then its not far to St Kilda Chadstone or the city.
If you like getting down to the beach then St Kilda isn’t too far.
The area has a good blend of people from young singles through to younger families. With Caulfield Park close by it’s a great spot for those that like to take their kids to run and run and run, and for runners and walkers it makes a reasonable spot to walk.
If you’re looking for nightlife, there are a few places close by.

"The best of living close to everything and peace and quiet"

A hidden gem, close to everything you need, especially good food, other great suburbs, excellent parks and schools - and very quiet and easy to get around on weekends when you want and need it to be. An extremely pretty, convenient and peaceful suburb right in the heart of Melbourne's best suburbs where you can achieve an excellent balance if you work close to the city.

"Great suburb and affluent lifestlye"

An ideal location for anyone who needs fantastic access to public transport, including families or professionals, Caulfield North is home to over 14,000 people. Boasting Australia's largest Jewish community, this busy suburb plays host to Caulfield Park, schools, an extensive tram network and Labassa - a mansion owned by the National Trust which was used as the filming location for the movie Queen of the Damned. Caulfield North is surrounded by suburbs such as Prahran, Armadale, Malvern, St Kilda East and Elsternwick and has an average property price tag of almost $890,000. It was the home town of TV personality Graham Kennedy, who attended what is now Caulfield Junior College.

"Close to everything"

I've lived in Caulfield North for a few years now and love it. It's close to great shopping districts: High St, Glenferrie Rd and Chapel St to name but a few! Public transport is excellent with everything you could need a short walk or tram ride away. One doesn't have to travel far to find good coffee either; with cafe Eco Blue around the corner on Orrong Rd.
