River-front lifestyle 8kms from the city
Attracting new admirers each year, Maribyrnong is only 8 kilometres from the CBD, boasts the shoppers' paradise of Highpoint Shopping Centre, the perennially-popular Maribyrnong River, frequented by native species including rainbow lorikeets, and a mix of affordable accommodation and luxurious homes. In some of its most prestigious locales, including The Esplanade, and the sought-after Edgewater Estate, where homes often feature spectacular city skyline views, competition can be high. The consensus is that Maribyrnong is close to the city yet chilled out, with many parks by the river and leisure facilities including the Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre. It's easy to drive to the CBD, plus trams and buses service the area.
