Kelvin Grove

    Kelvin Grove, Brisbane (0-5km)

Rent: apartment rents are in the lower to mid range, house rental prices are higher

Vibe: mostly bland but an evolving community feel

Location: Parks, Inner city, Near QUT/Shillington

Kelvin Grove is one of those places that you have to live in to appreciate. It has attractive streets, but lacks an overriding identity or  soul, which might explain why the Kelvin Grove Urban Village has been built. This is a very convenient suburb for students at QUT, and anyone who works at the Royal Brisbane Hospital. It is close to Paddington and the city centre. In recent years, more apartments have gone up. The best thing about this suburb is the weekly Village Markets held very Saturday morning. (More info below and to your left <<<)

ANNANDALE

A great suburb close to the city centre. Because of its location, wide tree lined streets and architecture, Annandale is quintessentially Victorian era Sydney with a Gothic twist and a high price tag. More >>


ASHFIELD

Ashfield is family territory and the Chinatown of the inner West. It’s quite multicultural with a mixture of working and middle class residents. More >>


BALMAIN

Bingo! Balmain is one of the best suburbs to live in Sydney. It has character, views, an interesting history, is cosmopolitan, but best of all, it has a great community spirit and plenty of good pubs. More >>


BURWOOD

There is definitely a buzz in Burwood with everyday people getting on with things in a pleasant, clean, environment. More >>


DRUMMOYNE

Don’t let Victoria Rd put you off. Yeah, the traffic is VERY loud, but go just one street back and you enter a world of larger period homes, trees, water views, and chirping birds. More >>


DULWICH HILL

How much do you pay for a Portuguese custard tart on the lower north shore or the eastern suburbs? $3? $3.50? Ripped off a beauty! In Dulwich Hill a piece of culinary heaven will set you back around $1.40. More >>


ERSKINEVILLE

Is an "alternative" oasis in Australia's glitziest city. More >>


FIVE DOCK

Five Dock is fab. It's like being in an Italian village. This is an unpretentious corner of Sydney that is filled with Italian delis, cafes and butchers. More >>


GLEBE

If you want to taste cuisine of the world but can’t afford the airfare, then bus it to Glebe Point Rd. Here you will find food from all over the world. More >>


HABERFIELD

Welcome to Italy. Walk down Ramsay St on a Saturday morning and you'll feel like you've gone through a time warp and entered 1950's Italy. More >>


LEICHHARDT

Cappuccino, pizza, gelati and some good looking waiters. Si Si. Liechhardt is Sydney’s Italian fix and Haberfield on steroids. More >>


MARRICKVILLE

Marrickville is a multicultural melting pot that's becoming groovy. It used to have a large Greek community, but now the Asian influence is much stronger. More >>


NEWTOWN

Put on your sneakers and get lost in Newtown. Newtown is the grunge capital of Sydney, where shopping and eating out is big, and where the mainstream is almost nowhere to be seen. More >>


PYRMONT

Once an industrial zone bereft of almost any residential life, Pyrmont has become a high-rise apartment mecca popular with young professionals on the way up. More >>


ROZELLE

This is the upmarket organic hub of Sydney. It’s got some great cafes, restaurants and shops, a weekly second hand market, a good community feel and lots of Victorian era workers’ cottages. More >>


SUMMER HILL

Once upon a time there were small, very basic, functional shops that catered for the working and lower middle classes. Then new people began moving in - professionals, singles, gays, refugees from the over priced eastern suburbs. And suddenly Summer Hill became groovy in an understated kind of way. More >>
