You get a real sense of history and grandeur when you’re travelling through Parkville\’s wide leafy streets past beautiful double and triple storey Edwardian and Victorian terraces. Home to the University of Melbourne and an array of extensive parklands, the Royal Melbourne Zoo is literally at your doorstep and you can even hear lions roaring in the evening.
The area is full of students riding bicyles to the university, cute local cafes, fantastic public transport access and joggers and walkers. Royal Parade, Parkville\’s central thoroughfare takes you right into Elizabeth Street, Melbourne and provides easy access to the vibrant colour and life of the Queen Victoria Market.
