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 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/busses to many parts of the city or into country Victoria.
In the immediate neighbourhood you can find a mini supermarket and cafe and within a short walk you have the Parkville Store cafe.
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.

I love reading historical fiction, bushwalking, travelling with SERVAS to Turkey and East Timor, living in the country, taking art classes, permaculture and organic gardening. I have a passionate interest in architecture and an ongoing fascination with religions as a result of my Catholic upbringing.
I also love to bring the "world to me" by having guests from all around the globe who will share something of themselves.
Live every day to the fullest is my motto.
