Brunswick is almost a straight shot north of the Melbourne CBD, about 20 minutes along Royal Parade (depending on traffic, of course). This route will take you near Melbourne Zoo (just less than 10 minutes south) and Princes Park (a little less than that). The University of Melbourne is also along this road, about 10 minutes from central Brunswick.
During summer, take advantage of the sunshine by visiting St Kilda Beach – one of the most popular seaside spots in the city, according to Visit Victoria. You will find this area on the other side of the CBD, about 30 minutes away by car.
Melbourne's tram system is the largest you can find outside of Europe, and makes for both a fun weekend adventure and a convenient way to get around.
Route 96 (East Brunswick-St Kilda) runs straight through the heart of this suburb, beginning at the top of Nicholson Street and heading south. It proceeds through the CBD, out the other side and down to Acland Street, near the beach.
You'll also find a number of train stops running parallel to Sydney Street (which turns into Royal Parade), including Jewell, Brunswick, Anstey and Moreland stations.
