Northcote, in the City of Darebin, is 7km north east of the city and home to one of the best views over Melbourne – from Rucker’s Hill. A bit of a hipster hot spot, Northcote’s main road, High Street, is all fixed gear bikes, understated bars and a cool, arty vibe.

Cinema buffs can enjoy flicks at the beautiful Westgarth cinema, a 1920s theatre with striking Art Deco and modernist details, and a fully licensed wine and espresso bar. The Northcote Social Club, with line ups like Missy Higgins and The Pixies, regularly bills top-notch acts and serves up great nights out.

Foodies will be handsomely rewarded in Northcote, with delicious Japanese at Otsumami, consistently good pizza at Pizza Meine Liebe and inexpensive, flavour-packed Vietnamese at Lam Lam. Estelle is a great spot for a special evening out or Merricote, back down towards Westgarth St is a great local find that sweetly blends ‘Northcote’ and ‘Merri’, of the nearby Merri Creek, to form its name.

Northcote can be reached by two train lines, Epping and Hurstbridge as well as tram and bus options.

Local recommendations:
St Dot’s Grocer, 234 High St. Cute local fruit and veggie vendor.
Merricote restaurant, 81 High Street. Relaxed, neighbourhood bistro.
Pizza Meine Liebe, 231 High Street. Try the ‘Greenpeace’, if you’re a silverbeet lover
Otsumami, 257 High Street. Delicious Japanese, creative dishes, great warmth.
