Essendon is situated just 20 minutes drive from Melbourne’s CBD but appears world’s away with its green open spaces and relatively quiet lifestyle.

Like most suburbs close to the city, Essendon has undergone gentrification and now offers a cosmopolitan lifestyle while still retaining much of the character of the past.

If you love shopping, Essendon is the place to be with its close proximity to DFO, Airport West Shopping Centre and Moonee Ponds Central.

Of course, this suburb is also the home of the Essendon football club which has a massive following. 

Public transport is in abundance with trains, trams and buses to get you around. For some exercise or outdoor adventure, there are also plenty of walking or cycling trails around the suburb.

All in all, it’s a great suburb to raise a family or to retire in. With its lovely tree-lined streets, this suburb has a pleasant ambience that many residents enjoy.
