Alphington is a well-known suburb of Melbourne located only 7 kilometers to the northeast of the CBD. Alphington’s claim to fame is that is the site of one of the most convenient residential areas in the city. Its fantastic location has led to a recent increase in demand for residential properties in Alphington. However, this increase in demand and house prices has done little to decrease the demand for new properties.

As a residential area, Alphington offers a wide variety of homes with different architectural styles. Many properties have designs reminiscent of the brick veneer style, popularized in the 1970s. Others, on the other hand, are more contemporary. Despite being primarily a residential area, Alphington happens to be the site of a paper production plant, one of the largest in the state of Victoria. However, as this is the only major manufacturing business in operation in Alphington, the suburb has retained a living environment that is well suited to a residential area.

The Latrobe Golf Club is one of Alphington’s many activity centers available to lovers of the outdoors. There are many parks and spaces in Alphington that are available for residents to enjoy. The largest and most well-loved parks in the suburb are Alphington Park and the Darebin Parklands. Here, families often spend time together, picnicking in the sun on the weekends, excersing, and enjoying the great outdoors. Darebin Parklands gives the suburb of Alphington a country feel with its extensive size, and offers free electric barbeques, toilet facilities and bountiful large, open spaces. . Alphington’s close proximity to the CBD makes Darebin Parklands a unique oasis of calm and traquility for everyone to enjoy.
