The largest suburb in the Moreland City Council area, Coburg is a leafy Melbourne suburb rich in cultural history situated 8km from the Melbourne CBD. Immediately north of Brunswick along Sydney Road, Coburg has a population of over 23,000 living in housing dating from the 19th Century. From its predominantly Italian and Greek beginnings, a mix of cultural backgrounds now call Coburg home, with many young families continuing to move into the area as they discover its convenience and easy access to both the CBD and Melbourne Airport.
With the Sydney Road shopping arcades, Coburg Town Hall and Coburg City Oval being well known their multi-purpose use and accessibility, the Merlynston shopping village is a draw card for locals whilst the Merri Creek Trail and Upfield Bike Path are popular with cycling enthusiasts. Not to mention the fabulous markets drawing in the locals; Coburg Night Market, Batman Market and the Coburg Farmers Market are all a hive of activity. Transport options include the Moreland, Coburg, Batman and Merlynston railway stations, whilst three tram lines service the area including the number 19 along Sydney Road to the city.
