Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in an up-market modern housing complex in an old suburb five kilometres from central Melbourne. Although we don't have a garden as such, the grounds are extensive and attractive and we overlook a popular dog park. We have access to a 25 metre lap pool, spa and gym. There are trendy shopping areas in almost every direction that cater for every kind of purchasing pleasure. The train station is a three minute walk away and the centre of Melbourne is a mere ten minute ride (four stops). You will never run out of fantastic cafés and restaurants to try. The complex even has its own café, Toorak Traktor, not long ago listed as one of THE hotspots to go for lunch in Melbourne. We are very new to this area ourselves (we have just moved three kms from our family home in St Kilda) and already we love it!!

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Armadale is a middle-class inner suburb of Melbourne. The city is just ten minutes away by train. Melbourne is the second most-liveable city in the world (until recently THE most liveable city) so culturally the variety and number of our museums, galleries, theatres, gardens is astounding. Melbourne is the sporting capital of Australia and we are just two stations away from Richmond, the station for the MCG (cricket, football) and Rod Laver Arena (Australian Open tennis). The beach is a short tram-ride away, as are public golf courses. We are very close to Melbourne bike trails. We are surrounded by all sorts of shopping precincts within walking distance while feeling quite peaceful in the midst of parks.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Our house is new - in construction and to us - so we would expect visitors to take care of it and to leave it in the condition they found it. We are very respectful of others' homes; we trust that you will extend the same courtesy to us. The house is not really suitable for very young children (open staircases, no garden etc) but older children are welcome.
