Hawthorn is one of the once ‘boring’ Inner Eastern suburbs of Melbourne – but it is boring no more! The amenity of the City Fringe is spreading to the Inner East. Hawthorn has a healthy bustling atmosphere and Box Hill provides an Asian food cornucopia that spares locals the journey into town for a good night out. And the Inner East still features the suburban staples of spacious older homes, lawns, gardens, pools, heritage orders and a family friendly lifestyle. Lots of parks, schools and shopping centres mean you rarely need to leave Melbourne’s Inner East, but when you do, two reliable train lines, trams and the Eastern and Monash Freeways make the journey relatively easy.
