Where you’ll be

Carlton North, Victoria, Australia

Carlton North is a Victorian-era heritage area comprising mostly row houses (one to two storeys) with wide streets and back lanes and lots of trees. Because most people don't have big back yards there are usually lots of people out and about. Curtain Square, Princes Park and Edinburgh Gardens are close, with Royal Park, Melbourne Zoo, Carlton Gardens/Museum, Carlton Baths (25m outdoor) and Fitzroy Pool (50m outdoor) not far away. There are also usually lots of university students in the area. The area is well serviced with great bike lanes.

Rathdowne Village is a 2min walk from the apartment and contains a mix of great cafes and restaurants including the acclaimed Gerald's Bar, the Kent Hotel and La Luna Bistro. A range of excellent produce can be obtained from Clay Fine Foods, Skinner and Hackett butchers, Yumbos ice cream and Senserrick green grocers. The popular Lygon Street, Carlton, and Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, restaurant and shopping precincts are short walks away.
