    Parkville is an historic inner Melbourne suburb adjoining the central business district north of the city and home to the gracious campus of The University of Melbourne and the Melbourne Cemetery. As it's name implies this suburb abounds in beautiful open parklands. Apartment "M" is situated on The Avenue opposite Royal Park and the Royal Park public golf course as well as the Melbourne Zoo. The housing along the wide open streets is a mixture of stately period homes, university colleges and modern apartments. Royal Parade, a treed, elegant boulevard runs parallel to The Avenue where frequent trams take only 10 minutes to get you to the heart of the city or to Flinders Street or Southern Cross train stations. From here you can catch trains to many parts of the city or into country Victoria.

    If you prefer to walk, within half an hour you can be in the heart of the bustling cosmopolitan Melbourne city or north up Sydney Road where you can enjoy the pleasures of a multicultural shopping and eating district. Famous Lygon Street with it's many shops and restaurants is a stone's throw through the Carlton gardens. Beyond are the splendid Exhibition gardens and Melbourne Museum. A bicycle is available if you wish to take advantage of a cycle ride to St Kilda beach or along the Yarra bike trail.
