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.
