"Stylish Seddon"

Walking through Seddon and peering into its multiple cafes, independent bookstores and quaint boutique shops is like flipping through a beautiful curated magazine full of beautiful pastries to try, coffees to drink and places to shop at. Perfect for the creative professional, Seddon is close to beautiful parks, full of street art and most cafes are pet friendly to enjoy the suburb's pleasures with your buddy. While not great for anyone looking for a nightlife, Seddon is close to suburbs like Yarraville and Footscray, both which have a myriad of bars to check out and luckily are just a hop and a skip from your front door. What is most likeable about Seddon however is how it breathes life and warmth back into the neighbourhood and provides a real sense of community.

"Understated, underated Seddon"

I bought in Seddon 6 years ago thinking it would be short term and a move to a trendy inner suburb would follow. Instead I've got a young family now and couldn't think of moving. Harris Reserve has a nice little playground and there is always someone there you know or have seen around, the cafes are of plentiful and their quality is as good as you'll find anywhere. New places like Seddonia and Seddon Wine Store, only add to the other places like Le Chien, Touks, Deadly Sins, Sabroso and the Mona Castle. Seddon has an understated charm, where people are relaxed, friendly and have a strong sense of community.
If you need some more variety Yarraville is only a short walk away with the Sun Theatre, Cornershop, Andrew's Choice Deli, l'ucellino and Dig a Pony. Go the other way and you've got Footscray and another world of experiences.
