Richmond is an inner-city suburb located 3 kilometers from Melbourne’s Central Business District and is home to nearly 28,000 residents, mostly millennials, who enjoy its rich sporting history, the vibrant cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs, parks and gardens and a plethora of other entertainment opportunities that are all within walking distance.
Many of its restaurants, bars and cafes can be found in its narrow one-way streets and alleys which are adorned with street art like colourful tattoos on buildings.
It is also host to Melbourne’s oldest indoor 50-metre swimming pool that is patronised by elite athletes, and has several childcare centres, primary schools, shopping centres, retail outlets, gyms, bowling clubs, a library, cinema, theatrette and much more. Melbourne’s sporting centre, the MCG is within walking distance for those that like Cricket and Australian Rules Football. As for tennis fans, the Rod Laver Arena is also in the vicinity.
The sounds of the Yarra River that meanders through will relax your frayed nerves after a stressful day at work. It offers a peaceful setting for picnics, walking and bike tracks, and is a pleasant change from the noisy itinerants that usually frequent this lively suburb. Alternatively, you could pick up a kayak and row down the river for some exercise in this mood lifting environment.
You will feel like you stepped back in time when you see the charming Victorian terraces that dot the landscape of this little suburb but when you see the skyscrapers that penetrate the city skyline, just a few kilometers away, you will realise you are in the 21st century.
It is a mecca for young professionals who enjoy the nightlife Richmond has to offer but this comes with the downside of noisy rambunctious party goers rambling through the streets at night.
The suburb meets the needs of people from all ages and lifestyles. Except for hard to find parking spots this suburb has it all. With trains bound for the city snaking through the streets every few minutes and trams crisscrossing across just as often, there is hardly the need for a car. It will take some time to get used to the rumbling of the trams and trains, but these are small inconveniences for the many conveniences Richmond provides.
