"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!

"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 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.
Pros
  • Eating Out

  • Shopping Acces
Cons
  • Parking at Night time
