3 ways to enjoy Melbourne’s north this weekend

By Jamil Allouche

"Four seasons in one day" – an adage heard tirelessly around Melbourne. With frigid mornings preceding scorching afternoons, the end of autumn is a period of especially unpredictable weather. As we truly leave summer behind and brace for the winter ahead, there is more reason than ever to get out and enjoy Victoria's capital city. From food trucks and river walks, to markets and yoga classes, property owners in Melbourne's northern suburbs are truly spoiled for choice.

Preston Food Truck Park

Year-round, foodies can enjoy some of Melbourne's best mobile dining at the Food Truck Park on High Street in Preston. Each weekend, the park chooses a theme – from chocolate to vegan fare – and dishes up cuisine from a range of local vendors.

The venue is fully licensed and features outdoor seating areas, as well as a cool converted warehouse for when Melbourne weather decides to do, well, whatever it pleases. 

The Merri Creek Trail

Our city boasts an extensive and reliable network of trams, trains, and buses, but why not save your Myki fare on the next sunny day and enjoy one of Melbourne's most beautiful and scenic paths: the Merri Creek Trail? Merri Creek has greatly improved the health and wealth of property owners in Brunswick and Coburg by offering countless recreation options and attracting visitors to the area.

Whether you are on two wheels or two feet, you will enjoy beautiful views, open spaces, and easy terrain as you cruise along the Merri Creek to the Yarra River. You can easily access the trail where Merri Creek runs through Fawkner, Coburg, Brunswick, Fitzroy North or Clifton Hill. 

Abbotsford Convent

The northern suburbs have cemented themselves as an arts, education, and entertainment hub in Melbourne, Australia's undisputed culture capital. Abbotsford Convent, located just north of Melbourne's CBD, has it all. Once one of Victoria's largest convents, visitors today can enjoy exhibitions across all art forms, take part in classes and workshops, or shop at local markets. Join in the fun at Laughter Club, take a writing course, and support local farmers at the Slow Food Farmer's Market. There is no shortage of things to do or see as you wander among the 11 unique, historic venues. 

Melbourne's northsiders know there is always something buzzing in our vibrant community.  A simple walk down Brunswick's Sydney Road offers residents shopping, entertainment, street art, and plenty of places to enjoy the perfect flat white.
