Moonee Valley’s largest and generally most affluent suburb, Essendon spans a sizeable area 10 km north-west of Melbourne’s CBD.
Successfully combining quality housing, excellent recreational facilities, leading education institutions, public transport, an array of shopping options and great cafes, Essendon is perfect for families (and for singles and couples as well!).
It is well served by tram, bus and train services and is bordered by both the Maribyrnong River Trail and the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail – ideal for commuting and recreational cyclists.
For those interested in sport, Essendon is home of the Essendon Football Club and the Essendon District Football League is one of the most successful suburban football competitions in Melbourne.
Housing styles range from fine Victorian and Federation homes, to classic Californian Bungalows, to ’50s and ’60s brick-veneers. Allotment sizes are commonly larger than in neighbouring suburbs.
