EAST MELBOURNE

Get to know
the area

Steeped in history and featuring some of the city’s most beautiful homes, East Melbourne is a glamorous grand dame about town. But where this luxurious enclave differs from its similarly fancy (yet considerably more suburban) counterparts is in its winning location – smack bang next to the CBD and all the action of Fitzroy and Richmond. 

Lifestyle

Classy, compact and very, very pretty, East Melbourne stands apart from its inner-city neighbours in both vibe and makeup. While nearby suburbs boast all the grit, glamour and late-night revelry that comes with an urban postcode, this sophisticated spot is something of an oasis set amongst parks and parliament.

Despite the fact that it’s located right next door to the CBD, the tree-lined residential streets of East Melbourne are calm and peaceful. 

Here, you’ll find some of the city’s most exquisite period architecture and most prestigious residences. This stylish locale is also home to several government buildings and health and religious institutions, such as Parliament House and all the spoils of the Parliamentary and Cathedral precincts, which sit atop Eastern Hill. 

And just when you thought East Melbourne couldn’t get any more picturesque, there are its heritage parks and gardens. The lush, green Fitzroy Gardens and Treasury Gardens are weekday hot spots for office workers looking for an escape, while come the weekend, picnickers descend en masse. The other local landmark that draws crowds en masse is the famed MCG – the epicentre of activity in sports-mad Melbourne. And while East Melbourne’s streets may be quiet, the stadium fans sure aren’t.

Neighbours

Affluent East Melbourne is home to a very wealthy crowd. Here, the families that reside in the area’s storied terraces and glamorous art deco mansions are as prestigious as the buildings they inhabit. However, due to its prime location right by the CBD, it’s mostly (very) cashed-up young singles and established older couples that call East Melbourne their own.  You’ll also find several doctors and medical staff living in the neighbourhood’s leafy streets due to its proximity to various health institutions. What all of these postcode proud locals have in common is a love for East Melbourne’s genteel feel, incredible architecture and easy access to everything the city has to offer.
