The most liveable suburb in the most liveable city
East Melbourne was one of the city of Melbourne’s earliest suburbs, and is located between the Melbourne central business district and Richmond. Planned in 1837 and settled in 1840, East Melbourne quickly became one of the most affluent suburbs in the country.
Today, East Melbourne is a very popular city in one of the most liveable cities in the world. What East Melbourne lacks in modern times it makes up for in other ways, like a lack of traffic jams – and every amenity you might need is just a short drive away. Today it is a quiet and leafy suburb that boasts many gardens and parks that were originally established in the Victorian era, including Treasury Gardens, Fitzroy Gardens and Parliament Gardens.
The large amount of public spaces and its rich cultural and architectural heritage, together with its reputation of being a hub for sports – the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Rod Laver Arena and soccer stadium are all located in this suburb – and relative affordability for renters all contributed to East Melbourne being named the most liveable suburb in the world in 2015. East Melbourne is home to close to 5,000 residents, and its close proximity to the CBD makes this an area where property is always sought after.
