About Richmond

Richmond has long been a trendy inner-city suburb with a vibrant and diverse community. Richmond is situated just 3 km east of the CBD and was once very much an industrial suburb with a diverse range of manufacturing companies such as Bryant & May.

However, it is now regarded as a preferred place to live for singles and professionals with its vibrant cafe, restaurant and shopping precinct and its proximity to the city.

One thing that residents note is that everything is within walking distance including schools, childcare centres, libraries, shopping and eateries. Plus, Richmond is also covered very well by public transport which includes trains, trams and buses.

Of course, Richmond is also very close to the MCG where many major sporting events are held and there are plenty of parks with lovely old deciduous trees that transform the landscape into bright colours in autumn.

Housing in Richmond is varied and quite diverse. There are lovely renovated terrace houses and warehouses that have been converted into modern apartment complexes.
