"Great location hard to beat!"

Docker Street in Richmond is a fantastic wide tree lined street, that stands out from some of the other ones in the area. It doesn't have that run down feel to it, which is nice, and there are a lot of younger people in the area.

Public transport is right at your doorstep as well, with the Richmond train station just down the road, and trams running along Church St AND Swan St.

On street parking is also available, so that always handy, and let's not forget about all the great bars, pubs and clubs in the area - too many mention! (My favourite is Hiliava)

One of the only problems is that it is sometimes used a thoroughfare to get between Church St and Swan St...but this isn't a huge issue.

Highly Recommended!

"It was good enough for Ben Elton!"

A great tree lined street starting behind the churches on Richmond Hill and ending at Swan St. With beautiful views of the city skyline and great proximity to, well, everything really.

Forget about needing a car. If the trams along Swan St and Bridge Rd aren't enough to get you to the city then you are withing 50m's of Church St to catch a tram to South Yarra or Prahran. Docker St is also just 5 minutes walk to South Richmond train station or 10 minutes to the larger Richmond station.

But why would you even bother going so far from Docker St? Have your friends meet you at many of the great pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants that Richmond has to offer.

And yes, Ben Elton use to live at number 10.
