"Busy and expensive"

Once the outer limits of the city Northcote is now almost considered the inner city. Overblown housing driven up by investors and rental houses in desperate need of repair despite their high costs. I currently live off High Street and we have a minimum of 4 garbage/delivery trucks each morning. They start from 3am. Great place to come and have a coffee if you can even get a park.

Forget dashing out to get something from the supermarket before dinner, as the traffic gridlock and lack of close supermarkets will see you back by 8pm.

Great access to public transport, cafes and parks, but if you are looking for a place for families and kids, look somewhere else.
