"Depends on which side of the rail you are on"

There's a huge difference between the two sides divided by the rail line. The side where the restaurants and cafes are is the quieter and safer side. The side closer to Ascot Vale is the bad side & cheaper side where there's lots of hidden community housing for drug users etc. Lots of doggy characters roam and police frequents the area regularly.

Despite the above, love the diversity, the convenience, and there are lots of great well educated people in Flemington that are nice to live next to.

There is a park + coffee shops with many families and professionals enjoying the Ascot Vale side of the railway line. Living here in the tree lined streets, including gums, is like living in the country with all the birds and quietness. Easy stroll to Pin Oak, restaurants and Kensington, plus picnics at the open Flemington race course with ducks. Like any inner suburb there is mix and diversity of people that is a celebration.

Rentals in Flemington

"Flemington has several massive ugly towers full of State-housing flats."

There are sections of great historic homes, but there are also lots of terrible apartment blocks full of State housing. Not a nice suburb to live.

"Character filled homes, great sense of community and every amenity under the sun."

Flemington is a small suburb squeezed between Kensington and Ascot Vale with many of its most beautiful streets will hidden behind the hustle and bustle of Racecourse Rd. Flemington is home to outstandingly well preserved heritage homes from Edwardian and Victorian eras located on well established tree lined residential streets. The Flemington community is very proud of its small suburb known to many because of it's vast array of multicultural dining options along Racecourse road. Pin Oak Crescent is a well hidden character filled shopping area with delicious coffee and bustling cafes. Public transport is a major plus with the CBD less than 10 minutes by train and tram access at your doorstep. Major hospitals are also situated within 5-10 minutes. We moved here 12 months ago from the inner south and have not looked back. We love the lifestyle Flemington offers and have been made so welcome by our Neighbours. We have everything we need here and will stay for a long time to come!

  • Proximity to the city
  • Community feel

  • Eating Out

"Great sense of community and convenience"

Flemington has really started to gentrify in the last few years but hasn't lost its diversity and character. It has great access to the city and surrounds, which means I can spend more time with my family before and after work. We love that there are still stables in the back streets.

"Great family suburb with everything here"

We move here 18 months ago from the inner north east and are loving it. We were surprised that insurance premiums were significantly lower here. There is a good community feel and lots of young families. Pin oak cres is charming and racecourse rd has great dining options. Parking can be a challenge outside our house though if we try to park at lunch or dinner time due to the presence of the great restaurants and cafes on pin oak. We love the move here.

Great for

  • Tree lined streets

  • Farmers market

Not great for

"Great Intercity suburb- you have everything you need!"

his is not completely accurate. Flemington is great for Nightlife, we have all the clubs and pubs 5 minutes away! We are great for Shopping Options, we have every store you could possibly want right outside your doorstep. The reason it isn't great for parking is because we have so many shops and restaurants that people from all over Melbourne come here. It's the best thing being able to be 5 minutes away from the city and having so many sources of transport around you.

Great for

  • Eating Out
  • Public Transport
  • Shopping Acces

Not great for

  • Parking at Night time
