Why Choose Princes Hill?

Princes Hill is situated just 3 kilometres north of the city of Melbourne and was named after the Prince of Wales as were Princes Park and Princes Hill Secondary College. Families with children, singles, retirees, and professionals live in this picturesque suburb where foxes can be seen dashing across the roads at night. 

It has a country atmosphere with plenty of parks and public transport to local shops and cafes. Beautiful Princes Park is the largest of all the inner-city parks in the Melbourne area where residents can relax and exercise far away from any traffic noise. The houses on tree-lined streets are well kept and a good public transport system is virtually on your doorstep as well as the convenience of shopping, cafes, and restaurants in nearby Fitzroy, Brunswick, Carlton, and the CBD.
