"the North Carlton end"

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! Short tram ride to town - even shorter trip heading out of town to the funky new bars and restaurants that have popped up - George C must also agree given that he opened his name famed Hellenic R right down the other end - not to mention Rumi, SquareBlock etc and then there is Rathdowne Street shopping (and eating) and again a short stroll from home.

Easy walk with kids to numerous local pubs and pizzas for the old fashioned family nights out and great parks to walk and ride to so that kids can run and kick balls around- and no having to retrieve them from neighbours. How many children can claim to play footy at both Princes Park and Fitzroy's old home ground - still both beautifully maintained.

We have been here since 1993 and it still works for us and our young family and i am 100% confident that it will still work for us when kids have moved out (maybe only next door) and we can again enjoy the ambience of the quieter cafes.
