3121 - Richmond, Burnley and Cremorne

With borders of the Yarra River on two sides and Victoria Street and Punt Road on the other two, the area of 3121 is a huge postcode to cover. It is constantly growing, changing, expanding (upwards) and evolving. 

Cremorne's newly revitalised, constantly growing area is a wonder to explore. Cremorne is in a constant state of construction, with lots of new apartment buildings going up. It is home to the gorgeous new offices of giants like MYOB and Seek. With more apartments and large tech companies moving in, we will see a trend of more cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants opening. 

A quick search of properties in 3121 shows 202 currently for sale, with studio apartments starting at $240,000, beautifully renovated four-bedroom houses for $3,000,000 and even an entire four-apartment block on Palmer Street selling for $4,500,000. 

Bridge Road used to be famous for its discount shopping - attracting busloads on the weekend, but these days, people come for great food and coffee. If you're up near the Epworth Hospital, get your coffee at the little hole-in-the-wall Georgie Boy Espresso

Victoria Street is well known as one of Melbourne's best spots for Vietnamese food and grocery stores. We recommend Tran Tran or Thanh No 2. Of course, you can't go wrong picking up a Banh mi for a quick, cheap and delicious on-the-go lunch. 

3121 has many spacious and beautiful parks and gardens. Citizens Park has a new-ish playground and oval perfect for kicking the footy or taking the dog for a run. Burnley Park has something for everyone: a playground, an oval, gardens to explore, and even a BBQ. There is lots of open space and shady trees for a picnic.

Richmond, Burnley and Cremorne have hundreds of options for eating and drinking. These are a few of our favourites:

The Grand, 333 Burnley Street - You can't go past The Grand with it's many dining options. Feel like a casual dinner, drop in on Wednesday for a $15 pizza or Thursday for a classic parma for $20. Feel like something a bit fancier, how about mussels or a sirloin steak? Not many know about the hidden gem at The Grand - their private dining available upstairs. The rooms are gorgeous, the food fabulous, and the service impeccable. The private dining is a fantastic option for a celebratory lunch or dinner. 

South of the Wall, 2 Cremorne Street - Boozy Brunch! Yes, please! South of the Wall not only serves up delicious Mexican fare such as street corn, tacos and burritos, but on Saturdays, they offer 2 and 3-hour boozy brunches ($69 & $99). Imagine this: two hours of bottomless cocktails, wines and beers and three food courses. Lots of fun, probably followed by a siesta!

Coe & Coe, 25 Stephenson Street, Cremorne - There is a good reason that Coe & Coe is so popular. The coffee is delicious, the salads are amazing (our fave is the chicken salad), and of course they are killing it with their merch. 

Be the Duck, 131 Burnley Street - This is a great little cafe to stop and grab some tasty lunch on your way to do some retail therapy at Victoria Gardens—no need for average food court meals when this is so close by. Chris will take good care of you!
