Melbourne’s tree-lined northern boulevard anchors the neighbourhoods of North Melbourne and Carlton to the city.

Once a popular route to the goldfields of the 1850s, Flemington Road has become North Melbourne’s own St Kilda Road. Today it is a grand, green gateway to the city, lined with stately London Plane Trees and glorious Green Leaf Elms.

Cultured Living

This is an area with a focus on art, culture and education. With such prestigious learning institutions as The University of Melbourne and RMIT, it’s no wonder this area is home to academics, artists and thinkers.

From Arts House in North Melbourne to La Mama in Carlton and the established theatres and galleries of the CBD, Nord is surrounded by fine music and culture.

Drop in on a public university lecture or browse the endless shelves of books and music at Readings. See the latest art-house hits at Cinema Nova and enjoy fine music at the Conservatorium.

The Locals

North Melbourne and Carlton have always been the city’s closest go-to places for those in the know. Both steeped in history and bursting with a sense of new opportunity, this has always been an exciting and evolving part of town.

North Melbourne’s eclectic mix of treasures includes the fashionista haunt, Kids In Berlin, the burlesque and cabaret venue, Club Voltaire, and the comedy and music venue, the Melbourne Lithuanian Club.

For foodies, Lygon Street in Carlton continues to enjoy its decades long reputation as the best place to go for traditional Italian cuisine – with maybe a gelati or an espresso to follow. King and Godfree, one of the oldest licensed grocery stores in Australia, also stocks an appetising array of things to stock your pantry.

Restaurants, cafés, theatres, bars and gardens… everyone soon finds their own local favourite around here. The good news is they are all just a short walk away from Nord.

The World’s Most Liveable City

Melbourne’s CBD hums with numerous award-winning restaurants, out-of-the-way eateries, pop-up shops, renowned laneways and endless shopping experiences.

Sip martinis at Gin Palace or The Carlton Hotel or pick up some eclectic homewares at The Junk Company. Stock your kitchen with fresh food from the Queen Victoria Market or relax in the Flagstaff Gardens.

Meet friends for drinks, dinner or a show after work, knowing home is so close by.
