Located 16 kilometers northeast from the Melbourne CBD, Bundoora is popular with families thanks to the quiet streets and large houses and with students thanks to the presence of La Trobe University's Melbourne campus here.
A number of shopping hubs provide residents with all the basics and there are tons of restaurants catering to every taste. Despite the fact that thousands of students live here or nearby, nightlife options are extremely limited and this is definitely not a party town.
Residents are passionate about sports, particularly bowling, baseball and golf. The suburb is home to the Greensborough Lanes, the Bundoora Brumbies Baseball Club, and several public golf courses.
The suburb is absolutely covered with green spaces and parks. The most popular is Bundoora Park, a 180 hectare (445 acre) public park that contains Mount Cooper, which is supposedly Melbourne's highest point and is a minor tourist attraction. The park is also the site of an annual Holi festival.
Bundoora residents have their choice of bus and train options to explore any number of surrounding suburbs or commute into the CBD.
