THE NEIGHBORHOOD Coburg (like any Inner Northern suburb in Melbourne) is a fantastic place to live and stay, and has really held onto a wonderful multi-cultural vibrancy - in our educated opinion, it's the side to be on! Let me humour you; It has the lightest, fluffiest falafel in all of Australia at one of the many reasonably priced Middle Eastern food shops. The Post Office Dining Hall/Cafe and Hotel (see pics at end of listing) is stylish, beautiful and just around the corner (a great place to have dinner, listen to some fantastic live music or sit in the awesome leafy beer garden with a pint. There is a new cafe just around the corner called 'True North' which we love and it's quintessentially 'Melbourne'. The 'Eastern Block' and 'East Timor' are 2 other great cafes nearby. There are new cafes popping up everywhere at the moment! The quirky Woodlands Hotel is also nearby and well worth a visit. And then, well Sydney Rd and Lygon street are fantastic and well worth a tram ride in when you're on your way to the city with lots of stop-off points! Be sure to visit Green – a cafe at the end of Sydney Rd in Brunswick for some amazing home-cooked goodness at cheap prices or Ray for breakfast. Also nearby is CERES, an environmental park with a cafe, farmers markets/stalls, a fantastic nursery and community vegie patches/initiatives. There is also a COBURG FARMERS MARKET. It's on every 2nd and 4th Sat of the month at Coburg North Primary School - lots of awesome produce there. Our neighbour, Brunswick (we are nearly on the border) is full of trendy cafes, shops, pubs, bars, restaurants, parks etc TRANSPORT Our house has excellent fast access to transport of all kinds. Firstly, trams and trains are literally just around the corner, making it super easy to get into the city or other places along the way such as Brunswick (neighbour), Melbourne uni, the hospitals, Queen Vic markets for fresh food or the Royal Melbourne Zoo! In addition, right behind our house is a bike track which goes into the city. THE LOCATION The house is a 1 minute walk to the nearby attractions of the vibrant, iconic Sydney Rd, 3 large supermarkets (Woolworths and 2x Coles), independent delis, butchers, fish mongers, spice shops, an abundance of delicious and cheap Turkish food, the Post Office Dining Hall/Cafe + Pub around the corner (see pics in gallery), True North, East Timor Cafe, The Eastern Block cafe, hairdressers, beauty salons, The Woodlands Hotel, parks, trains and trams. LOCATED BETWEEN THE CITY AND THE AIRPORT The house is situated ideally between the airport and the city making it a quick car/cab trip costing around $30. Quick and easy access to the CityLink, a major arterial road which skirts around the city, making it super easy to access CBD, and all sides of Melbourne.
