The SpacePresenting a lovely naturally lit unit with plenty of storage space, fresh linen and towels. Guest AccessGuests have the whole house to themselves including the bathroom, kitchen, living & dining area as well as the humble little courtyard. The NeighborhoodThe unit is walking distance to the heart of Brunswick, where you can enjoy the eclectic range of restaurants, bars and shops to suit every flavour. Getting AroundPublic Transport There are plenty of Trams and Train options just near by and all these trams and trains reach the city within 20-25 mins of departure. Moreland Train Station - 400m away Tram 8 - 100m away Tram 19 - 300m away Tram 1 - 300m away Getting here from the Airport Taxi: If there is more than one of you, a taxi costs the same as public transport, so relax and let the taxi deliver you here! It shouldn't cost more than $40 to get here. Uber is also a great alternative to taxis and most commonly cheaper. Sky-bus: $17 one way/$28 return. You can buy the tickets at the sky-bus booth which is just outside the airport doors (or you can purchase online). This takes you to Southern Cross station. From here you can catch the train, tram or get a taxi to our place. Other Things to NoteTea and coffee are provided, however please note breakfast is not included. We recommend trying one of many of the breakfast cafes within walking distance. Check out the guide for our suggestions.

The SpaceOur home is a long, narrow, older-style house, it was built in 1920, with double brick plastered walls and high ceilings. Close to three trams, a supermarket, train station and bus stop. Your guest room contains a comfortable queen-sized double bed, with free wifi included. PLEASE NOTE that we only offer the *one* guest room, available to one booking at a time, so you will not be staying in a house with any other guests! We get this particular inquiry often, I'm assuming it happens a bit out there in Airbnb land, so hopefully this makes if very clear. You will be sharing our home with us as we go about our normal lives. This, in case it is unclear, does mean exactly that: we very much enjoy having laid-back guests in our home, but we will continue to go about life as normal while you are here. This is not a 5-star hotel, it is our home. We love it here and we hope you do too. Our home is a character-filled old house with wooden floors in the shared areas, carpet in bedrooms, and central heating. Our lovely sunny backyard has a herb garden, BBQ, outdoor setting & outdoor firepit. We love sitting on the back deck enjoying the sunshine to eat breakfast and our evening meals, and encourage you to do the same. The kitchen has every appliance you could imagine (Airdrie is occasionally into cooking)! At your request, we can make some space available in the kitchen fridge if you wish, and you are welcome to use the crockery, cutlery & all kitchen appliances. Our home is located on the Brunswick/Coburg border, close to both Lygon St & Sydney Rd. The nearest tram stop is an easy 3 min stroll from the door (both the No 8 / No 1 trams). We are a 15 minute drive to city, or 30 min on tram. The East Brunswick Project, which serves some of the best coffee in Melbourne, is two stops away on our tram line (or a leisurely 15min morning stroll if you prefer to walk), straight down Lygon Street. Moreland Train Station also within walking distance. Unrestricted on-street parking is available in front of the house. We have a nice relaxing fishtank which is great to just sit & watch, plus two small, quiet but friendly dogs (miniature dachshunds: Molly and Spike). Please note that the dogs are not allowed in the bedrooms, even though Molly will try to convince you otherwise! If you are a smoker, we request that all smoking is done outside (ashtrays are provided outside the back door). We are very happy to offer a safe & welcoming space to members of the LGBTQ community. Guest AccessGuests have access to most rooms in the house, including the shared bathroom, laundry, toilet & kitchen. Everything, in fact, except for my home office and our bedroom. You are welcome to make yourselves at home! During the warmer months we enjoy dining and relaxing on the back deck, enjoying the sun. You are most welcome to do the same. Interaction with GuestsIt is up to you how much interaction you have with us. Some guests like to retreat to the privacy of their room, or spend all their time out and about exploring Melbourne. Other guests like to spend time chatting around the kitchen table with us. Either is welcome! The NeighborhoodAn eclectic and vibrant area in Melbourne’s inner north, Brunswick & Coburg bustle with a diverse cross section of interesting street cafes and restaurants flaunting a spectrum of global flavours. Easy walking distance to bars, cafes, inexpensive restaurants, shops & post office (the house is within easy walking distance of both Lygon Street and Sydney Road). The area has plenty of cafes and bars, lots of artists and musicians live in the area and there is an active live local music scene. Historically it was a poor working class/migrant area which has recently become gentrified. There are lots of front yards still with lemon trees and fig trees growing to reflect this history. There is a great article in Broadsheet Melbourne (a local online paper) describing some of the excellent places you can eat out in Brunswick for under $10 if you feel like googling! Getting AroundTrams: #8 and #1 tram are both a very easy 2-3min stroll away - both trams will take you in to the city. #19 tram is also an easy walk. Trains: the Upfield train line is approx 900 metres away on the other side of Sydney Road. Buses: the 510 which travels between Essendon & Ivanhoe via Brunswick, Northcote &Thornbury goes right past the door, the nearest bus stop is a two minute walk. Other Things to NoteSometimes I must admit to being very absorbed in my work which can mean I stay up very late working in the home office, however I am very quiet when I do this! It can also mean that sometimes if I am absorbed in planning a photoshoot or some such thing, the house is not tidied for a couple of days. If neither of these things would bother you then I am sure you will enjoy staying with us.

The SpacePrivate room in a quirky old house in the inner northern suburb of Brunswick East. Older style weatherboard home, with large sunny deck looking onto the back yard. My place is a work in progress (ie there's a bit of painting to do) but it is comfortable and welcoming in a great location. The Bamboo Room The room has one double sofa bed and a real single bed in it. The room is close to the shared bathroom with separate toilet and the open hand-basin area which is an unusual feature. The room has bare, unpolished floorboards and a small rug. You will be sharing the bathroom area, living room and kitchen with me, my son and our small dog. Kitchen available for meals by negotiation - tea/ coffee available - Friendly host - (artist / teacher). All sheets and towels provided, wifi, plenty of free parking in the street and off street parking if needed. Min 2 night stay. Please contact to discuss. I prefer 48 hours notice if you would like to stay. Transport My place is well serviced by public transport - there are two trams a five minute walk away with the city about 20 minutes away by tram. There is easy access to a train line and also buses taking you east and west of the city. The Area East Brunswick is full of cafes and restaurants - you will be spoilt for choice! Sorry, but if you're a smoker, my place won't be suitable. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the shared areas of the house: living room, dining room and deck/garden. I expect that you would use these areas respectfully, leave them as you find them and appreciate that they are family spaces. Interaction with GuestsI'm happy to chat with my guests and like to know a little bit about their plans ie when they are coming and going from the house so that if I feel like having a private dance party in my kitchen I won't disturb you nor embarrass myself. As I do some work from home, please respect that I won't always have the time for long conversations. The NeighborhoodEast Brunswick is a great neighbourhood! Lots of cafes, bars and restaurants nearby, some quirky shops, yoga studios and CERES Environment Park. Getting AroundIf you have a car, you can park right outside my place or even off road if necessary. There is public transport within a 5-10 minute walk from my place. Only 15 minutes from Melbourne University, and 20 minutes from RMIT and the city. There is also a GoGet pod just a couple of minutes walk from my place and other carshare vehicles (Flexicar and Green Carshare) nearby. Other Things to NoteI try to live as simply and sustainably as possible. This means that I compost all food scraps, kitchen paper and tissues. Paper, plastics and metals are put in a separate recycling bin. It also important to minimise use of electricity. For example, please don't boil a full kettle of water for one cup of tea/coffee, please avoid using the heater unnecessarily (ie if it's 15° C or higher) and please remember to turn off lights when not needed. I also do all my shopping by bike so if something needs replacing please let me know in advance so I can add it to the shopping list. Thanks for your understanding.

    The SpaceThe apartment is Deco/Edwardian in style and has polished floorboards and ornate ceilings and wooden blinds. Your room has polished floorboards, a king sized futon bed, furniture and is 4.3 metres by 4.2metres in size, quite big enough to hang out in all day. The rest of the flat is more 'cosy' in size - a small kitchen a bit like a ships galley, a compact 1940's style green tiled bathroom with a shower bath and a long loungeroom with vintage furniture and bric a brac. The flat is located next to two major public transport routes. Tram 96 is just 30 metres away and takes you south to the city centre in 15-20 minutes or all the way to St Kilda beach in 45 minutes. Bus stops take you east to Bundoora and west to Pacoevale. The Lygon Street tram line that goes past Melbourne University is 10 minutes walk west and Sydney Road and its great thrift stores, middle eastern foods and a fashion district is within 20 minutes walk. Taxi to/from Airport takes 25-30mins and 50-$60. Traffic sounds are normal for a room next to a main street but minimised by double windows. The pub across the road can be heard sometimes but it is not loud at all and the music is mostly good :) I like talking with guests but Im also mindful of their space - and not bothered if guests spend all their time in their room. Please note this is a 1940's apartment,and it has a old feel and worn yet funky feel about it. If you're looking for a well maintained apartment that is contemporary and sterile please look elsewhere :) Guest AccessWifi. Bathroom and kitchen is shared but I mostly shower at the swimming pool and use the downstairs toilet as much as I can. Interaction with GuestsI'm home mostly but sometimes I am away on working trips so I might not be there for part of your stay but conversely I am home alot when I am not away. The yoga studio runs as normal even if I am not here. The NeighborhoodThis area is a crossroads between two great cultural strips of inner Northern Melbourne. Located in East Brunswick, between High St, Northcote and Lygon St Brunswick you have the choice of some of Melbourne's best budget dining and cool bars. Restaurants range from cheap eateries to quality Lebanese and Turkish with Indian, Greek, Italian and Thai places. Around the corner Ceres Environmental Centre is set on reclaimed parkland next to Merri creek and it's convenient bike paths. Ceres has a daily organic foods market and two cafes with outdoor and indoor dining. They also have a bike shed where you can buy a second hand bike cheap - or take your own to work on. There are three coffee places within 50metres, and the Lomond Hotel Pub right across the road has good live music and there's also a pizza place downstairs. Getting AroundEasy transport options - the tram is right outside.

    The SpaceOur beautiful architect designed apartment is one of four converted from the former Brunswick Congregational Church built in 1888. Our apartment was for the architects personal use and has original timber and lots of exposed brick walls and leadlight windows. The building is located in the heart of Brunswick and is within walking distance to Lygon street (50m), Sydney road (.75km) and Nicholson street (.75km), all of which are major Melbourne tram routes. Brunswick train station on the Upfield line is a 10 minute walk, and the 508 bus service between Alphington and Moonee Ponds stop is 50m. Lygon St shops, restaurants and cafes are close by, and the exciting and colourful Sydney road shopping strip is only a 10 minute walk in the other direction. The apartment itself was converted about 20 years ago to a contemporary living space comprising 2 queen sized bedrooms, one 1st floor and the other 2nd floor, both with en-suite shower/toilet. The ground floor area is open plan with a living, dining and kitchen areas. There is also a laundry and powders room on this level.There is a 1st floor mezzanine which has a fold out single bed when required. All the areas were professionally decorated and detailed with a high quality fit-out, that gives the impression of still being in the 'Victorian' era, whilst enjoying all the benefits of modern convenience and comfort. The decor is completed with our own period collection of art and prints. We have off-street parking for one car only, but currently the street parking, whilst busy, is unrestricted. Our home is not pet or smoker friendly. The apartment is not suited for younger children, as there are two flights of stairs without safety barriers and we do not have cots. Guest AccessThe 2nd level bedroom/en-suite is what we are currently offering which sleeps two and has a spectacular view over the Melbourne CBD skyline. It is self-contained in that there is a small fridge, a table and two chairs, a kettle, coffee plunger and a microwave/convection oven with utilities for two people.Keep in mind its a climb of two flights of stairs, so is not suited to those with mobility challenges. The apartment has only one entrance, so access is provided by a pin code to a key safe that we text or eMail a couple of days prior to your arrival. If we are not in residence, it may be possible by prior arrangement, to have access to the other areas in the apartment with the exception of the 1st floor bedroom, which we reserve for our private use. If we are in residence, we are happy to extend your stay to the use of the kitchen, lounge room and laundry on the ground floor. There is also a private outdoor BBQ and seating area for your use. Interaction with GuestsWe (Lesley and Pete) live at the apartment 50% of our time, so we are keen to optimise the 'empty' time at the apartment (and also share our experience with like minded people). The NeighborhoodBrunswick is a vibrant collection of restaurants, cafes, bars and retail shops. It is well serviced by trams, trains and buses to the City and even St Kilda Beach. There are bike and walking tracks all around the area and easy access to all the sporting venues that Melbourne is so well known for. Blyth Street is a wide street with plenty of parking Getting AroundTrams along Lygon Street, Sydney Road and Nicholson Street are all in walking distance and train station is 10 minutes walk all give direct access to Melbourne which is approx . 6 kms from Brunswick. A Bus service operates in Blyth Street that connects across suburbs Other Things to NoteTV, DVD, iPod/iPhone speakers, wireless internet, Apple TV, books and CD's provided.

    The SpaceThe house comes complete with designer lighting and wooden floor boards throughout. This 2 bedroom house is a relaxing and beautiful place to stay. It has a relaxed energy, with handpicked furniture which makes it comfortable and easy to live in. The living area is a large open space with western facing windows for the afternoon sun. A large dinning table is a feature of the living area, allowing for easy conversation at dinner time. This feels far from a cottage and easily accommodates guests without making you feel like you are living on top of each other! The bedroom which you will be staying in has a futon style queen sized bed and king size doona to make you as comfortable as possible. It is a light fill room with plenty of space which makes it easier for someone who wishes to stay a little longer. The house opens up onto a deck and a dropped level backyard with plenty of trees and herbs growing in the garden. The deck is perfect for spring and summer afternoons with comfortable chairs to sit in while having an afternoon drink in the sun. There is central heating and aircon and you can have a fan in your room (if Mlebourne ever gets its summer!) Guest AccessApart from my bedroom, you will have access to the entire house and backyard. The living space is fairly large. Interaction with GuestsI'm always welcoming of new people and am happy to take some time over a wine or dinner. Although equally happy to leave you up to your own devices if you are out and about around Melbourne. My house easily accommodates guests without feeling crowded. Please note that my boyfriend has also started living with me. he is a super relaxed, easy going Chilean guy who works in hospitality. The NeighborhoodBrunswick is slightly famous for its fruit trees that over hang into the streets and alley ways. Brunswick is located about 6km from the city center, with great tram access that will get you back into town in about 30 mins door to door. It has great places to eat and drink (some are more hidden than others in true Melbourne style). My favourite breakfast places within walking distance are East Elevation, a Minor Place and the East Brunswick Project - although there still plenty more to explore in the neighbor hood. I am happy to share the best places and direct you in the right direction! There is also 2 local supermarkets, both within a 10 min walk away from the house. The IGA on Sydney Road is by far the best supermarket around. Getting AroundThere are 2 different tram lines as well as a train station, all within 10 mins walking distance of the house. The no 1 & 8 tram run down Lygon street, or there is the no 19 tram that takes you down Sydney Road - both take about 25-30 mins into the city. You will need a myki card (a travel card) for public transport, i'm happy to lend you one for a short stay or until you get one organised for a longer stay. My house is a 20 minute taxi trip from the airport - its the easiest way to get to my house from the airport. Other Things to NoteI do have a inside cat, she lives inside and whilst being friendly, she keeps to herself and wont go jumping on you or your things. You are also welcome to use netflix if you are looking for a quiet night in. I have a very small side business that involves sewing and making pretty things - very occasionally this takes over my living room table! My boyfriend has also moved in with me... but never fear, he is house trained and works alot!

    The SpaceWelcome to a warm and friendly private home in the heart of Brunswick, Melbourne! Ideal for people who appreciate a lovely and homely place to live and/or a home away from home - and an iconic Federation house attached to an old Melbourne Milk Bar to boot! My name is Julia and I'm a musician/ singer. I am happy to let you know of my favourite/ hard to find haunts for that nice glass of red, or much needed Melbourne Latte! I'm offering this home as a separate dwelling so you can have your own house in the heart of this city. The federation style house has been divided and I live in another part of the house. Your portion of the house has 2 large bedrooms with comfy queen beds and a lounge room. The kitchen also includes a sofa and is big enough to lounge about in. There is also a self contained bungalow and we share the backyard. There is a sofa bed in the lounge room - however, if you use this bed then you are giving up the lounge room. I would suggest if people can to share the queen bed instead. It's large and comfy and you don't sink into the middle! ;) Guests can expect a creative vibe. My sister is an artist - and 3 of her paintings are in the house, and I'm a singer. I enjoy nice furniture and things and am gradually making this home even more comfortable for my guests. There are a mixture of antique pieces with retro and function! I like people to feel at home. I have lived in Brunswick for years before it was a "cool" place (!), and I feel the house really captures that brunswick vibe that people seek. I call the kitchen my "Oma" kitchen. It hasn't really changed in years and has a very good feeling to it ... If only the walls could talk! For Singles: I would recommend this home even just for one, as if you stay here by yourself, it will be a nice home to enjoy a very pleasant stay in the heart of this great suburb in Melbourne, (trust me, I love it here ;-)) Many people have stayed here alone and loved the tranquility and space - and for the price - it's affordable. It's thoroughly enjoyable solo. If the extra bedroom is not required for the listing, I just close the door on it (i.e. - if just one person or a couple book). I'll be accessible if need be as I'll be living on the same property as your neighbour. You may be able to occasionally hear me play and write music/piano (although I'm not a loud person and I'm extremely respectful and never play too late). It's very common however that for weeks we never see each other. The house is large, bright and lovely in a groovy area of Brunswick, close to cafes, a 2 minute walk to trams, 7 min walk to Anstey Station and close to great cafes, and bars between the famous Sydney Roads and Lygon St in Brunswick. I also speak German for those from that side of the earth ;-) Internet is also provided. You will have access to wireless internet for emailing and social networking but not for downloading movies, games etc. There are plenty of DVDs also for your enjoyment. There is also hydronic heating in the house and in each room so the house is always super cosy in winter and on colder days. The heating turns on automatically. I include also cereal, coffee, tea if required for short stays. You are welcome to rent this house for longer term also, although there will be a cleaning negotiation required.. ;-) I like to present the house spotless, and keep it that way. The house is fully furnished and equipped with all kitchen facilities, utensils, and mod cons. The power is solar, and the house is environmentally friendly. There are a couple of fruit trees in the large garden and a potential vegie patch. I am no gardener - but there is a nice table for you to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. The garden is shared between the guests, myself, and Terry who has lived in the bungalow for a few years. Terry and I rarely see each other - and we are very happy for you to make yourselves at home. Please be mindful when booking flights that check in is 2pm and checkout is 10am. I look forward to hearing from you! BRUNSWICK THE AREA: I liken this awesome and creative sunny place to that of Brooklyn in New York (it's where my sister lives - so I have been there a bit.. ;-)) People love Brunswick for it's eclectic nature and it's hard to find haunts (as well as easy to find ones!). It's also very central with easy and frequent trams taking you right to the city centre (which is 7km away). It's a vibrant suburb, made rich by it's multiculturalism with various cuisines on offer - from Italian Deli’s to Middle Eastern bakeries and Lebanese restaurants (my fave is "Tibas" in Syd Rd), as well as my favourite Thai place in Sydney Rd "Tom Phat" or another popular amongst locals "Thalia Thai" in Lygon St. At one end of my street is a Turkish restaurant with belly dancing, and at the other end you'll find the famous "I Carusi" gourmet Italian Pizza place. For more upmarket and special occasions there is "The Hellenic Republic" Greek Restaurant which is within walking distance and is George Calombaris's Restaurant (MasterChef), as well as the "Albert St Food and Wine Store" Syd Rd. A cheap local find is “Greenfield's” a vietnamese restaurant. The local pub “EC” short for 'Edinburgh Castle' have well priced meals with specials daily and a beer garden. Up the road from the “EC” is Nando's (an Indian restaurant) and a little further along the famous Lebanese “Al Bakery” for cheap lebanese pizzas. For cafes the well known "a minor place" cafe is 1 minute walk from the house with free wifi. A little bit up the road from this is “Jellystone” which serves delicious “Atomica” coffee (founded in Melbourne and my favourite). At the top of Lygon St. there is the “Brunswick East Project” for a lovely slick warehouse feel where they roast their own coffee. You may also enjoy the culture of Sparta Place, a quaint and quirky laneway just off Sydney road - or Ray's Cafe in Victoria St. “La Paloma” is a quaint cafe tucked away behind the ANZ bank in Sydney Rd with cheaper coffees and a great vibe. A short stroll to the end of the street will find you at the Merri Creek, and a little further on you will find the farmer's market and environmental farm at "Ceres". There is plenty to do with the kids here. You may also take the kids to the unique Kompan Bloqx Playground or the local Brunswick Baths. There is plenty to do for the whole family! Local pubs and supermarkets are all less than a 5 minute walk (my fave pub is Edinburgh Castle - the beer garden is great and vibrant in summer).. as well as the Post Office hotel in Coburg and the Retreat Hotel for live music. It's a short stroll to great bars, cafes and restaurants. Lygon Street also has delicious food, wonderful service and beautiful park-lands and really comes alive in the evening. From the house you can walk to Hellenic Republic (George Calombaris’ Press Club), see a band or enjoy a gelato at the Gelateria. My favourite bar owned and run by well known local artists is the Alderman (135 lygon st). Mr Wilkinson will also not disappoint for that groovy drinking hole with a touch of class. The bar not to miss is the “Spotted Mallard” in Sydney Rd where they often have live music. Sunday afternoons in particular is a good vibe. Lygon St in Carlton has the famous Nova Cinema and Tiamos Italian restaurant. The B. East (in lygon st east brunswick) has the best lamb burger served by hipsters on this side of the earth ;-) Enough said! Find your own haunts and please let ME know about it! ;-) Brunswick is very central and accessible by tram to Melbourne's major attractions; the CBD, Museum, The Zoo, China Town, Victoria Market, the MCG, Southgate, Crown Casino, Flinders/Spencer Street station (Southern Cross) St Kilda and Chapel Street. Interaction with GuestsI will say hello in the beginning and then leave you to yourself. Other Things to NoteThe dishwasher is currently not working.

      The SpaceMy quirky fifties house is in East Brunswick on very beautiful Merri Creek surrounded by big beautiful trees and lots of birdlife, yet five minutes away from cafes and coffee shops. The room is light and airy and has a queen size bed, table and chair, free wifi, TV and built in wardrobe and ducted heating. My home is spacious with a large living and kitchen area, also a huge deck with BBQ, lots of sky, trees and birds. Enough space for two people to really spread out and not feel cramped or crowded. Feels like you are in the country, but you are in one of the coolest suburbs in Melbourne only minutes from cafes, restaurants, bars and the vibrant hubbub of inner city living. Guest AccessMy house is your house; help yourself to all facilities, garden, deck, laundry and kitchen facilities. Coffee and tea, help yourself. Bed linen and towels provided. If you want to pedal around Brunswick or travel further afield, I have a bicycle you can use to really enjoy yourself. Interaction with GuestsI work from home and come and go often in the day. I play a lot of tennis, if you love the game come and join me. I have travelled most of my life and love to share travel stories. Love to have a cuppa and a chat but respect your privacy and space. I have lived in Brunswick a long time, so happy to help you with your directions, places to visit, great places to eat and interesting things to see. Feel free to ask any questions. I am happy to help you any way that I can. I have two gorgeous cats, Phukee (very spunky Thai National) and Sanook that do their own thing. Phukee does like a good lap to sit on but is not offended if you shoo her off. The NeighborhoodBrunswick is a very vibrant and multi cultural suburb with everything you need, great coffee houses, great cafes, ale houses, lots of second hand shops and even a few local designers. In the vicinity and less than a ten minute walk there are at least six cafes to enjoy your morning coffee in. Being a multi cultural suburb we have wonderful Thai, Turkish, Italian, Lebanese, Japanese and Indian eateries to name a few. Recently Johnny Di Francesco from local pizza restaurant 400 Gradi, won the best pizza in the world title in Italy. Needless to say it is a very popular restaurant and certainly worth the trip. A little closer to home, is renowned chef and star of TV series MasterChef George Calombaris’ Helenic Republic, a wonderful Greek restaurant with a modern touch. Great. There are ale houses and bars and pubs, all serving great food at very reasonable prices. The family owned Lomond Hotel a five minute stroll away, has great food, friendly staff with a lovely old fashioned pub atmosphere. An all round good pub experience with live music four nights a week. A must do, is a ride or a five minute stroll along the Merri Creek to CERES, the local environment park which has a nursery, a wonderful market where you can buy organic fruit and vegetables, local craft makers’ wares, second hand books, clothes, soaps and so on. There is also a cafe where you can get a coffee or a meal while you enjoy the beautiful peaceful surroundings. Further afield a thirty minute walk away is Sydney Road which truly is the heart of Brunswick and a joy to stroll down. Such diversity of people and shops. Many cafes and wonderful ethnic restaurants: Turkish, Thai, Vietnamese and in particular, not to be missed, is Tibas the best Lebanese restaurant in Melbourne! Big statement, but true! Getting AroundTwo tram routes, the 96 in Nicholson St and the 1 in Lygon St are both five minutes’ walk away. The 96 travels down to St Kilda on the bay through the city, via the Exhibition Buildings, the striking contemporary Melbourne Museum, Southern Cross Station, the Arts Centre and the Casino. The number 1 also goes down to St Kilda via a different route. It travels along Lygon Street through iconic Carlton, the traditional home of Melbourne’s Italian Community with many great Italian eateries plus a sprinkling of other wonderful ethnic restaurants. Past Melbourne University, on through the city to the Art Centre, Southbank, the National Gallery of Victoria, and on to St Kilda, another fabulous place to visit when you come to Melbourne. Brunswick is very easy to get around, walking around Brunswick you get to see and feel the wonderfulness of the suburb, but if you prefer jump on a tram. Bicycles are the choice of many Brunswick residents. I have flexible hours so can pick you up from the airport for a small fee, if time suits. Other Things to NoteLocal restaurants and cafes worth checking out. La Taverna: family run Italian restaurant, great food and atmosphere Rumi: nouveau Middle Eastern. Great. Small Block: Great breakfasts or just hanging out drinking coffee. Gelo Bar: Best cakes and gelato ice cream Alasya: Bustling busy delicious Turkish fare. A1 Bakery: Great Lebanese bakery, pita, pies, Lebanese pizza and Mediterranean groceries. Mediterranean Wholesalers: Monster Italian store that sells everything Italian.
