Funny Melbourne Street Names

Funny Melbourne Street Names

Funny Melbourne Street NamesMelbourne street names with a funny twist.

This fabulous list of names shows our town planners have a sense of humour.

BATMAN AVENUE

Who wouldn't want to live in a street named after a fictional superhero?

Although this city avenue was named after John Batman, one of the first residents of Melbourne.

BIONIC EAR ROAD

Bionic Ear Lane's western end is at the Eye & Ear Hospital, commemorates the pioneering work of Australian medical scientist Professor Graeme Clark. He developed the multi-channel cochlear implant, the first hearing device to give real speech understanding to people who are profoundly deaf. The lane is behind Burlington Terrace where the Bionic Ear Institute can be found.

BROADWAY

A Reservoir shopping strip that's got a bit less razzle dazzle than the New York version, but it is lovable nonetheless.

ERNST WANKE RD

Ever passed this stretch in Narre Warren and thought, 'say, what'?

According to the Casey Cardinia library, German settler Ernst Gottlob Wanke (1823-1897) was a medical student who came to Australia as a ship's doctor. His family were remembered as hardworking migrants who were successful farmers. According to a report in the Berwick Star, the family pronounce the name as 'wan-kee' and remain unimpressed by other interpretations.

EMO RD

Emo - short for emotional hardcore and the name of a thoroughfare at Malvern East.

No emo cows allowed, though. It's a breach of council policy.

FASHION PARADE

Forget Milan. The traditionally working class suburb of Broadmeadows - once maligned for residents wearing moccasins outside the home - has moved from crimes against fashion to hosting its very own fashion parade. Respect.

FEAR STREET

Don't get bogged down in Fear St, Richmond.

Opt for Courageous St, Taylors Lakes. Or at least give it a shot at Hope St (no excuses, Melbourne has five of them).

GRYLLS ST

This Brunswick thoroughfare is humorous not so much for its name but for the teddy bear some local clown mounted to its sign.

So meet Bear Grylls, wrestling with the wilds of inner suburban Melbourne.

LOIS LANE

Melbourne is blessed with not one but two streets bearing the name of Superman's love interest and intrepid reporter: one at Yarraville and another at Dandenong.

MARRIAGE ROAD

Just off the Nepean Highway, you reach a fork in the road.

It's at Marriage Road, Brighton East.

You can commit to the turn or just take Separation Street at Fairfield.

NICE PLACE

A Point Cook location well known for its modesty.

SESAME STREET

Can you tell us how to get there?

SOUTH PARK DRIVE

Just head down to Dandenong South and have yourself a time.

TENNIS COURT

So a town planner at Mornington has a sense of humour.

THRUSH STREET

When you share the same address as an unfortunate medical ailment.

Inexplicably, this is happening at three locations in Victoria: South Morang, Norlane and Werribee.

If anyone asks tell them it is named after the bird.

TITTYBONG STREET, QUAMBATOOK

What can we say?

WISTERIA LANE

A real-life suburban street inspired by the fictitious lives of the TV show Desperate Housewives.

The properties built inside the gated community at Caroline Springs, on Melbourne's western fringe, have been designed with an American look.

Y STREET

Y Street in Ashburton. But why?
