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. 

St Albans is bordered on the north by Keilor Downs, on the east by Kealba and Sunshine North, on the south by Albion and Cairnlea, and on the west by Kings Park.
