An arty inner suburb with a village feel, an art deco cinema (Sun Theatre) and plenty of good cafes. 

Yarraville, Melbourne (inner west)

If Williamstown is the snob end of Melbourne’s inner west, Yarraville is the alternative community minded hip style-meister. And ya gotta love the gay boys. Had they not begun moving into Yarraville about 15 years ago and injecting life into the place, it would probably still be down and out. Now, Yarraville has a sausage king, a cinema, bars, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, organic food, and great yoga. All of Yarraville's shops are set in just two, yes two, small, narrow streets. And when you are down here, it feels as though you are in a country town. The architecture is mostly Victorian. Streets vary from small, to wide and tree lined. Traditionally a working class suburb with a large Greek community, these days it is much more likely to be home to the creative educated folk and many new parents who are environmentally aware.
