Suburb profile: Brunswick, VIC 3056

Brunswick is an inner-city suburb just 4 kilometres north of Melbourne City known for its bohemian culture and strong arts and live music scenes.

Sometimes it could seem that all anyone does in Brunswick is hop from one new cafe to another, switching to bars toward evening and working up an appetite.

Choose from stalwarts and newcomers among the ever-growing population of bars, restaurants and cafes on Lygon Street, Sydney Road and Nicholson Street. Serious caffeine hits and brunches draw crowds of locals as well as visitors from other parts of Melbourne.

At the Brunswick Flea Market you'll find Vintage clothing, homewares, furniture, knick-knacks, plants and so much more. Sure, you’ll occasionally run into a bit of trash but we promise they’ll be a whole lot more treasure.
