North Melbourne

An urban neighborhood, North Melbourne has an industrial hip charm to it. With converted warehouses, charming houses, majestically wide streets, and a growing number of chic cafes and bars, it is one of the most in-demand neighborhoods in the country. Popular among the young crowds because of its affordability compared to other parts of the country, there is a strong sense of community with the feel of inner-city living.
