Burnley is a small suburb located 4 kilometers east of the Melbourne CBD. Known for its diverse range of residential architecture, historic buildings, and narrow streets, Burnley is a popular suburb for young professionals and families who want peaceful living close to the big city.

Most of its real estate is taken up by a golf course, parks and a University of Melbourne campus. What's left is thoroughly residential. The area has no town center with shops or dining, but it doesn’t need one since Melbourne is only a few minutes away.

Burnley has three major parks equipped with tennis and netball courts and athletic fields. Each sunny weekend, you'll find locals lounging in the park, working up a sweat on the courts, or playing a round at the Burnley Public Golf Course.

Most residents live in affordable apartments and semi-detached townhomes. Among the clusters of homes in Burnley, you’ll find a Greek Orthodox Church that serves Burnley’s sizeable Greek population.   

Burnley is bordered on the north, east, and south by the Yarra River, and on the west by Richmond.
