  WHAT’S LIVING IN East Melbourne LIKE?

East Melbourne is a vibrant suburb just a few minutes from the Melbourne CBD. It's marked by its wide, leafy green streets lined with Art Deco houses and apartments. Victorian-era gardens dot the suburbs, the most impressive being the Treasury Gardens and the Fitzroy Gardens.

History buffs, academics, and artists flock to East Melbourne because of its many significant religious and government institutions. Every day, hundreds of pedestrians stroll pass historical buildings like the Parliament of Victoria, and take in stained glass windows of the Parliamentary and Cathedral precincts. The full-time residents here mostly consist of young professionals and singles.

East Melbourne is home to one of the most famous sports arenas in the country: the Melbourne Cricket Ground (referred to as 'MCG' by locals) in Yarra Park. This venue hosts cricket matches (obviously), AFL games, rugby games, soccer matches, and live music.

Most residents live in artsy apartments, older Victorian style homes with small gardens, or pricey semi-detached townhomes. Still, residents are willing to pay a higher price to live in Melbourne’s most historical district.

East Melbourne is bordered on the north by Fitzroy and Collingwood, on the east by Richmond, on the south and west by Melbourne CBD
