  WHAT’S LIVING IN Richmond LIKE?

Richmond is a small, hip suburb 3 kilometers east of the Melbourne CBD. Residents of Richmond are mostly comprised of urban professionals who want to stay close to the city. And while it attracts a good number of singles, it's also a popular spot for families, many of whom tout the neighborly vibe and tightknit community. Most residents live in Victorian-era townhomes that sit closely together on narrow streets. 

The neighborhood is home to a large Greek community and is also known for its vibrant Little Saigon section along Victoria Street. The diverse population has made for a diverse (and delicious) dining scene here, ranging from Italian and Moroccan to Korean and steakhouses. 

Richmond has a few green spaces including Citizens Park, the Barkly Gardens, and the Allen Bain Reserve. For those with children it has a number of excellent primary and secondary schools.

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