  WHAT’S LIVING IN Oakleigh LIKE?

International cuisine. Culture. Commerce. Oakleigh is a small Melbourne suburb whose amenities rival those of much larger suburbs. This is a thriving area, driven by a steady influx of young and trendy citizens along with a bustling business and cultural scene.

Oakleigh has its own Central Business District that spans almost 9 blocks. The area is filled with businesses, shops, banks, and retail complexes. Eaton Mall is a major pedestrian mall that has tons of restaurants, boutiques, banks, chemists, grocery stores, butchers, salons, and other services within a one block radius. 

The area is traditionally known for its Greek heritage thanks to an influx of Greek immigrants in the mid-20th century. These days, proximity to the city and affordable, attractive houses have caught the eye of young professionals seeking a picturesque place to call home.

Oakleigh has an array of homes for rent and sale, but there are apartments and townhomes available as well. If you’re looking for a suburb with tons to do, Oakleigh is the place for you.

Oakleigh is bordered on the north by Chadstone, on the east by Mount Waverley and Huntingdale, on the south by Oakleigh South, and on the west by Hughesdale.
