Neighbourhoods
Melbourne is lots of little villages and they all have their own character. Fitzroy North is home to us for five years now. I will add area by area as the guidebook grows.
Leafy and green, yet very central, Fitzroy North is the family end of Fitzroy Hipsterville. You don't need tats, you do need a relaxed attitude. The politics are green, the coffee is some of the best in Melbourne and the streets are full of kids, bikes, dog, old Italian ladies and an incredible mixture of real people. No hedge-fund babies or property developers here. No cars are needed, as everything is within walking distance.
