CAULFIELD

Get to know
the area

Sprawling Caulfield with its handy inner-city location and family-friendly feel is a real crowd pleaser. In this slice of suburban heaven with an urban postcode, the homes are spacious, the coffee beans are freshly roasted and the streets are tree-lined – and the bright lights of St Kilda are right next door.

Lifestyle

Leafy, friendly and oh so liveable, family-oriented Caulfield has lots of charm. The multicultural epicentre of Melbourne’s Jewish community, it has more atmosphere than other equally affluent suburbs throughout the city.

This appealing culture is amplified by the neighbourhood’s sizeable student population and close proximity to eclectic St Kilda and the CBD, making Caulfield a popular choice with those who like their streets quiet, but character-filled.

Caulfield is a residential area first and foremost. Glen Huntly Road’s few cafés are the perfect spot for chatty neighbours to catch up over bagels and newspapers, while children ride their bikes through the area’s wide and welcoming streets. Locals are more likely to while away their spare time lounging in one of the neighbourhood’s many lush, green parks than indulging in late night revelry. As a result, the drinking, dining and shopping scenes are somewhat limited – this doesn’t pose a problem thanks to Caulfield’s buzzy neighbouring suburbs.

However, the action does come to town in the form of the Caulfield Cup – the glitz and glamour of the annual racing carnival brings the area to life. Otherwise, it’s all about that laid-back lifestyle.
