Hawthorn is an inner-city suburb with much to offer.
Home to Swinburne University of Technology, a bustling shopping strip, restaurants and green spaces, the suburb attracts many domestic and international students, families and young professionals.
Combining the safety of a traditional suburb with the amenities and vibrancy of the city, Hawthorn is one of Melbourne's best suburbs. If you've been thinking about making the move to Melbourne, then Hawthorn might just be the perfect spot for you.
1. Close to campus
Say goodbye to rushed mornings! One major benefit of living in Hawthorn is living so close to the Swinburne campus. Whether you choose to live in on-campus accommodation, a nearby share house or private rental, you won't have to worry about commuting to campus.
So, instead of spending valuable time stuck in traffic or on public transport, you'll have extra time to sleep, study and socialise when you're not in class.
2. Close to the city
Since Hawthorn is located just six kilometres from Melbourne's CBD, getting to and from the city – and surrounding suburbs – is a breeze. Hawthorn is serviced by multiple trams and train lines that travel into the city and around the outer suburbs of Melbourne.
It is also conveniently located between the Monash and Eastern Freeways, giving you direct access to the rest of Victoria by car. Why not take a road trip to one of the many national parks just outside Melbourne?
