NORTHCOTE

Get to know
the area

Charming, community-centric and very on trend, once unassuming Northcote has undergone something of a renaissance in recent years. Originally the domain of creatives and long-established migrant groups, increasing gentrification has seen this artsy neighbourhood’s stakes soar. With edgy bars and cult brunch spots, Northcote has well and truly made its mark.

Lifestyle

Embracing the hallmarks of its Italian heritage, Northcote is fast emerging as one of Melbourne’s most stylish addresses. From chic wine bars to world-class restaurants, stylish boutiques to the seemingly never-ending brunch rush-hour, this charismatic suburb has emerged from the shadows of its inner-north neighbours to claim its spot as one of the city’s most desirable postcodes.

With its own special brand of laid-back cool, Northcote’s charm lies in the fact that it doesn’t try too hard. Locals are rarely seen without their bikes, whether it’s cruising to one of the area’s many organic produce stores or prepping for a picnic in leafy All Nations Park. The neighbourhood’s artistic credentials can be seen in its stylish boutiques, record stores and creative studios, as well as the luxe mid-century furniture dens that litter its streets.

Iconic venues such as Northcote Social Club and The Croxton play host to local and international acts, as the nightlife in what was once a sleepy northern outpost continues to hold its own. And just when you think Northcote might have hit its peak, another winning High Street restaurant opens its doors, another buzzing café puts its wares on display, and yet another grocer offering biodynamic smoothies opens up. Safe to say, Northcote has arrived.
