Tucked between the Tullamarine Freeway and Mount Alexander Road is the small suburb Travancore. Besides a couple coffee shops, it doesn't have many local attractions, but its appeal is the quick commute into Melbourne's CBD just a few kilometers away. For active residents, it does offer Moonee Ponds Creek Park, which sees runners and cyclists on its trails that run along Moonee Ponds Creek.
The suburb is most known for its Art Deco-influenced homes and apartments that give it a unique architectural flavor. Some of these houses are stunning. Travancore has a very large rental market and most residents live in apartments. People who want to live here can expect to pay above average rent and mortgage rates.
