FLEMINGTON

Get to know
the area

There’s more to community-centric Flemington than horse racing. It’s a charming part of the city that’s in equal parts peaceful and colourful. No wonder this buzzy neighbourhood is steadily creeping up the desirability lists. The locals are young, diverse and situated right in the middle of all the action. Rest assured, Flemington won’t stay quiet for long.

Lifestyle

Home to the fabled Melbourne Cup, Flemington Racecourse is a national icon. Of late, Flemington itself has developed into a multicultural hotspot that’s home to some of the city’s tastiest international cuisine.  People are queuing up for a taste of life in this affable suburb, drawn by the wide, tree-lined streets and pretty period houses.

Whether you fancy Thai or Somalian, Italian or Vietnamese, you’ll find it in cosmopolitan Flemington. In fact, walking down its main thoroughfare Racecourse Road is somewhat akin to taking a worldwide culinary tour, so diverse are the enticing menus on offer. The local café scene is equally impressive as are the numerous parks that dot the neighbourhood, making it as desirable to families as it is to young independents.

And while this may not be the spot for late night revelry or daytime boutique browsing, the bright lights of the city are close by that it really doesn’t matter. This has to be one of Melbourne’s most connected suburbs – it’s serviced by freeways, main traffic arteries and extensive public transport options.

Colourful and convenient in equal measures, it seems no one can get enough of Flemington.
