Brunswick West is primarily a residential suburb with some light industry. It provides easy access to CityLink and the Tullamarine Freeway, and is located 6 km north of Melbourne’s CBD.
Home to a significant number of quality Californian Bungalows, and offering some larger allotment sizes, Brunswick West has fewer single-fronted homes than its neighbours, and is more family-friendly. The construction of multi-storey units has made the area attractive to renters and investors also. Offering a more relaxed lifestyle than its more bustling neighbours, it still has convenience of their shopping and cafés.
