With its leafy streets, gorgeous eateries and sprawling Edinburgh Gardens, Fitzroy North is a beautiful inner city suburb. Only 4kms from the city, it can be easily reached from the city on the 96, 112 and 86 tram lines.
Fitzroy North’s busiest street is Brunswick St, which becomes St Georges Road, and its intersection with Scotchmer Street is the suburb’s epicentre. Here you’ll find Piedemonte’s, the iconic continental supermarket that has been operating since the early 1960s, wonderful bread from Loafer Organic Bakery and the longstanding Tin Pot Café.
Properties in North Fitzroy are predominantly Victorian and Edwardian single and double storey terraces and large parts of the suburb are subject to heritage controls. Development in the suburb has been kept in check over the years and the suburb’s streets are quiet and wide.
The Merri Creek divides North Fitzroy from neighbouring Northcote, and Smith Street and Queen’s Parade mark the border with Clifton Hill.
