Melbourne Suburb Guides

Melbourne City

The City of Melbourne is made up of the city centre and a number of inner-city suburbs.

The Suburbs include: Albert Park, Carlton, Coode Island, East Melbourne, Fishermans Bend, Flemington, Jolimont, Kensington, Melbourne, North Melbourne, Parkville, Port Melbourne, South Yarra, SouthBank and West Melbourne,
Each suburb has its own distinctive flavour, with different businesses, dwellings and groups of people living and working there.
Carlton is the traditional home of Melbourne’s Italian community and is famous for the bustling restaurants and cafes that spill on to bustling Lygon Street.
Leafy Parkville is home to the University of Melbourne and major hospital, research and institutional facilities, while at East Melbourne you'll find fabulous heritage homes, two of the city's most impressive parks as well as the world-famous Melbourne Cricket Ground.
With its quirky mix of housing types and village-like shopping hub, Kensington has won hearts for its appealing residential character, while North Melbourne is an interesting mix of houses, businesses, warehouses and small parks, with Errol Street emerging as one of the latest cool spots to sip and sup.
Docklands is changing the look and feel of Melbourne. Six times the size of Sydney's Circular Quay, Docklands is being developed, mostly by private sector investment, with waterfront restaurants, shops, apartments, offices, businesses, technology centres, marinas, parks and public artworks.
Southbank is the buzzing riverside promenade stretching along the south side of the Yarra River from the popular Southgate shopping and dining complex to the glittering Crown Casino. It's been a favourite spot for Melburnians to drink, dine and stroll.
