Boutique shopping, multiculturalism, and a thriving foodie scene define St Albans. If you don’t own a car or want to live relatively close to the Melbourne CBD (15 km east), St Albans is a vibrant place to call home.
The heart of the suburb can be found at the intersection of Main Road and East Esplanade, where locals browse a variety of shops and cafes that satisfy every type of palate: about half of St Albans residents are from Europe, Asia, and Africa. A strong Vietnamese presence has let to some delicious Vietnamese eateries.
But St Albans isn’t just a place for shoppers and foodies, it also has a number of parks and athletic fields to enjoy. For sports fans, the suburb has two local soccer teams, the St Albans Saints and Green Gully Cavaliers; both compete in the Victorian Premier League.
There is a large population of singles in this neighborhoood. Families are attracted by the excellent education options, like the Victoria University Secondary College and Catholic Regional College St Albans.
