Unsung hero of the city fringe suburbs
Leaving behind its past as an unsung working class suburb, North Melbourne has made a trendy name for itself in the last decade or two, and warehouse conversions, workers cottages, Victorian terraces and apartments comprise most of the local homes. Setting the northern fringe suburb's cool vibe, Errol Street is the fashionable heart of North Melbourne. Easily found from neighbouring streets by the landmark clock tower of North Melbourne Town Hall, now a major arts venue, Errol Street is the place to visit for great food, shopping and laughs in the Comic's Lounge. There are handy transport options, Royal Park is nearby, and Queen Victoria Market leans up against the suburb's border, demonstrating that the CBD is within easy walking distance.
