Boutique shopping, beautiful Victorian homes, and a booming foodie culture define the affluent suburb of Malvern.
Weekdays at the Malvern Tram Depot, Malvern Station, and Tooronga Station are full of commuters heading into the CBD for work. And nights and weekends are filled with young locals hurrying to nightclubs, restaurants, and museums in the city. Malvern has a string of impressive boutiques and restaurants of its own, however, so you won't have to leave the area for dining and shopping if you don't want to.
Much of Malvern is filled with beautiful Victorian homes on large properties, which is an uncommon perk compared to most of Melbourne's inner city suburbs. While the majority of Malvern residents are single, these homes are typically populated with families – the good local primary schools and parks and gardens are a big draw for them. The rental market is tight in Malvern, so house hunters will need to keep a close watch on the market to get a slice of this suburban pie.
Residents have a variety of transportation options to get them form one hopping suburb to the next, so if you don’t own a car or want to live a stone’s throw from Melbourne CBD, this is the suburb for you.
