HAWTHORN

HAWTHORN At A Glance

Leafy, picturesque Hawthorn with its prime inner-city location and family-friendly feel offers the best of both worlds. A suburban haven with an urban postcode, homes here are spacious and the streets are tree-lined. And Richmond and the CBD are right next door.

Local Tips

As is all too often the case in busy Melbourne, the parking is limited.

Fun Fact

Wealthy Hawthorn blossomed in the Gold Rush period.

Lifestyle

Lush, spacious and oh so well appointed, Hawthorn oozes moneyed charm. One of Melbourne’s priciest locales, it has somewhat more character than its surrounding suburbs thanks to a sizeable student population and close proximity to hip Richmond and the CBD. This wide appeal makes Hawthorn something of a star pick amongst locals looking for a neighbourhood that has it all.

Lifestyle

Indeed, when it comes to ticking all the boxes, luxurious Hawthorn doesn’t disappoint. It offers grand avenues with beautiful homes alongside a number of more affordable student housing options, a thriving café scene, a select yet impressive number of restaurants and bars and a well-established shopping strip – and all of this just a quick tram or train ride from the city.

Bustling Glenferrie Road is the beating heart of the community, and comes complete with countless stylish boutiques and the kind of cafés that roast their own beans and bake their own bread. The area’s surplus of excellent schools, green spaces and stately homes keep well-to-do Melbourne families firmly rooted in its leafy streets, while the student-driven coffee scene keeps everyone satisfied (and buzzing no doubt). With its brilliant location, established prestige and hint of urban cool, it’s easy to fall for Hawthorn’s charms.

Neighbours

While undoubtedly prestigious and home to some very impressive real estate, Hawthorn draws more of a mixed crowd than some of its neighbours due to the presence of both Swinburne and Melbourne University campuses.

Neighbours

This coupled with its close vicinity to the CBD means that students and young professionals live side by side with established Melbourne families and retirees. Given the calm of the suburbs and the convenience of the city there aren’t many who can resist Hawthorn’s charms.

GLENFERRIE ROAD

Looking for something? Chances are you’ll find it on Glenferrie Road. Hawthorn’s busy shopping strip is a mecca for locals who head there to mingle over artisan coffee and stock up on supplies.

PARK LIFE

Locals like to get back to nature in Hawthorn’s many lush green spaces, with the much-loved Anderson Park offering some of the best views of Melbourne’s city skyline from the midst of an urban oasis.

THE YARRA

The banks of the Yarra are just the spot for a leisurely ride or walk and the path can be followed all the way into the city.

STATELY HOMES

Some of the grand properties on Hawthorn’s tree-lined streets really need to be seen to be believed. Built on the spoils of the Gold Rush, standouts include the impressive Grace Park House and stately Kawarau.

EDUCATION

Hawthorn is a haven for education, with Swinburne University, the Melbourne University Hawthorn campus and a number of the city’s most reputable schools all within its borders.

Property

Hawthorn is home to imposing Victorian mansions and 1970s-built student flats, sweeping estates and single-front cottages. A largely residential suburb, these contrasts are what make it so appealing to renters and buyers.
