  WHAT’S LIVING IN Carlton North LIKE?

Located 4 kilometers north of Melbourne is the hip suburb of Carlton North. This is a vibrant area with a bustling cafe and restaurant culture. Most of the action takes place on Rathdowne Street and the northern end of Nicholson Street. Locals flood these blocks to enjoy culinary hot spots like the original La Porchetta pizza and the Natural Tucker Bakery. This lifestyle attracts a lot of singles and young couples, but Carlton North is equally popular with families.

This is very much an inner city suburb, so don't expect large homes on wide, leafy streets. Most residents live in small Edwardian and Victorian-style terraces. Despite their size, they're still pricey: it costs to live in a cool neighborhood this close to the CBD.

There is a small park in the center of the suburb with a playground and basketball court. On the neighborhood's west edge is the larger Princes Park, where you'll find a tennis club, sports fields, and the stadium of the Carlton Australian-rules Football League club. The suburb is also home to the sprawling Melbourne General Cemetery.

Carlton North is bordered on the north by Princes Hill, Brunswick, and Brunswick East, on the east by Fitzroy North, on the south by Carlton, and on the west by Parkville.
