History of Caulfield North, VIC

Many streets in the suburb were named after Crimea War locations and people, for example, Cardigan, Canrobert, Inkerman, Alma, Raglan, Redan and Balaclava.

Caulfield North was once the location of many large Victorian mansions on large estates, most of which were demolished and subdivided in the early twentieth century.

In 1889 further extensions and lavish refurbishment commissioned by William Alexander Robertson created the present mansion which is of national significance. The house is sometimes used for the filming of the ABC’s lady detective series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and was one of the filming locations for the 2002 film Queen of the Damned.

“Perfectly positioned for quiet and convenience” reviewed by Shannon Barker

I currently have an apartment for lease on Hawthorn Road and have recently explored the area. There are great public transport links with a number of trains close to Hawthorn Rd. The hustle and bustle of Hawthorn Rd is the melting pot of the suburb and there is a real sense of community.

We moved in few weeks ago and are amazed and extremely delighted with the convenience. Shopping, eating, tram, train etc….all within waling distance. It is peaceful and tranquil even though is near to city. Great place that you won’t regret living in.

“The best of living close to everything and peace and quiet” reviewed by Martin M.

A hidden gem, close to everything you need, especially good food, other great suburbs, excellent parks and schools – and very quiet and easy to get around on weekends when you want and need it to be. An extremely pretty, convenient and peaceful suburb right in the heart of Melbourne’s best suburbs where you can achieve an excellent balance if you work close to the city.
