Carlton in a nutshell
Located about 15 minutes east of our Footscray physio practice, vibrant Carlton is a lively multicultural neighbourhood just 2km north of Melbourne's CBD and the homeground of the famous Carlton Football Club. It is the home of Lygon Street (renowned for being the birthplace of Melbourne’s café culture and well loved for its Little Italy vibe). Carlton is adjacent to three University campuses, and the magnificent Carlton Gardens with its heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building and Melbourne Museum.
A leafy tree-lined university hub in the City of Melbourne, Carlton offers an intimate village feel, lush European style garden squares, designer shopping malls, museums, and ample café and restaurant options. Residences range from medium- to high-density apartment towers, walk-up flats, specialist student accommodation, and Victorian terrace houses. This university town is well connected by buses and trams.
