Tuppen Street

"Location, Location, Location....."

Tuppen street, sitting near the heart of yarraville is all about the location. With its close proximity to childcare and schools it makes a perfect option for families. And, with only a 10 minute walk to the Yarraville Village it makes for a great street. From personal experience, the neighbourly atmosphere is FANTASTIC! The street holds christmas parties and gets into the swing of every festive holiday (especially halloween). It is super kid friendly as many home owners in the street are families.
The block sizes are very large for Yarraville and the houses have Heritage listed frontages, meaning NO apartments, NO super modern houses, NO town houses, just lovely californian bungalow style houses ranging from brick to wood.

"The best culture in the west!"

Ahhhh Yarraville, with it's village culture and vibrant atmosphere you would be hard pressed to find a person who didn't love this quaint little suburb which is only 7kms from the city! The yarraville village offers a great lifestyle with many cafes and shops to choose from, but with out a doubt its main star is the Sun theatre (an independent theatre which offers great value for your money). Yarraville seems to have many great streets with many bordering parks (which seems to be a lot). There is a great sense of community and everyone from all walks of life seems to be bobbing around the village!

A great place for families to single business people, and everyone in between!!

AndyG2, do you still live in Yarraville? Is the traffic at Francis St still as bad as it is? I am considering to move there, either Francis st, Tongue St or Sommerville Rd, would you give me some advice? Thanks


Hi ChiShanH - read my response on AndyG2's original post.


Hello :) I love the sound of Yarraville but Im struggling to identify where the 'toxic sites' are that people are referring to. My younger child has severe asthma so I obviously wouldnt want to stay somewhere that would affect his health negatively. Are there some areas that are more polluted than others?
