City of Yarra

Cosmopolitan shopping and dining, a vibrant arts culture and thriving live music scene give the City of Yarra its uber-cool inner-city vibe

From the bohemian café culture of Fitzroy, to the elegant streets of Abbotsford and buzzing retail hubs of Richmond, Yarra is a lively, eclectic mix of age groups and cultures – all seen in its rich array of restaurants and eateries. Home to Melbourne University’s Burnley campus, and a plethora of primary and secondary schools including Fitzroy and Richmond high schools and Melbourne Girls’ College, Yarra’s educational offerings are second to none. This culturally and socially diverse municipality also boasts some of Melbourne's best shopping, including Bridge Road, Swan and Victoria streets in Richmond, and Brunswick and Gertrude streets in Fitzroy.
