Melbourne (CBD)

"Melbourne CBD - the place to be!"

Ive been working in the CBD for two years and love it! Its very accessible by both trains and trams. There are lots of great cafes and lunch options and theres always something going on at Federation Square. If youre a working professional, the CBD is a great choice for you.

Brunswick

"10 Things to Know Before Moving to Brunswick"

1) Brunswick has lots of great shops. Whether it’s the varied shopping on Sydney Road, the staples in Barkley Square, or the plethora of great places to eat on Lygon Street, you will never go hungry! For eating, I suggest Rumi, Town Hall Kebab, Tandoor n Spices, Moo Moo’s Milk Bar among others!
2) NBN is available! Check here for coverage: http://www.nbnco.com.au/develop-or-plan-with-the-nbn/check-rollout-map.html Brunswick’s postal code is 3054 for the NBN and you can see coverage stops south of Albion St.
3) Rental properties in the area are affordable and varied. Everything from apartments, houses and duplexes can be found. As more infill occurs, even more quality property will pop up.
4) People are super friendly. I was surprised when I first moved here how many people will greet you on the street.
5) Lots of car share availability. I use GoGet, but Flexicar and others all have vehicles available in the area.
6) Good transit to the CBD and north/south. The 55 tram will take you straight to downtown via Melville Road and Grantham street, but of course Lygon and Sydney Road all have tram service. Buses also service the area, and the Upfield line is the main train artery.
7) Not great transit west/east. Like many places in Melbourne, going west/east can be a real pain.
8) Lots of young families. Although the demographics are mixed, there are heaps of kids and families about.
9) It’s safe. Apparently back in the day Brunswick was known as a bit rough but that is ancient history. I’ve never once felt threatened walking at night and have never worried about property theft. I couldn’t find stats for Brunswick specifically, but here’s a link to crime stats for Moreland (of which Brunswick is only one suburb) http://www.police.vic.gov.au/content.asp?a=internetBridgingPage&Media_ID=72186
10) It’s close to Royal Park, Melbourne’s largest green space!

Brunswick West

"Great neighbourhood with a diverse demographic."

We moved to Brunswick West having never visited this part of Melbourne and were pleasantly surprised. The people are very friendly and welcoming, there are many great parks and amenities in the area, and a surprising amount of decent dining options. There are young families here, professional singles and older retirees as well as pockets of ethnic groups. These all give the neighbourhood a great vibe and friendly atmosphere.

Great for

  • Friendly people
  • Affordable rent
  • Nice green spaces
