Northcote | 3070

Northcote is a residential and industrial suburb 8 km north-north-east of Melbourne.

Until 1994 it was a municipality, bounded on the west by the Merri Creek and on the east by the Darebin Creek. Its northern and southern boundaries adjoined Preston and Fitzroy / Collingwood / Kew respectively.

Northcote Early History


The settlement of the Northcote area began in 1839 with a Government land sale. Many of these allotments were long, narrow strips of land running in an east-west configuration, which has resulted in the street patterns of the suburb to this day. The area to the north of (what is now) Oldis Gardens was surveyed as the township of Northcote in 1853.

Northcote Public Transport


Northcote has five railway stations along two lines. The Epping Line serves Merri Station (formerly known as Northcote Station), Northcote Station (formerly known as Middle Northcote Station), and Croxton Station. The Hurstbridge Line serves Westgarth Station (formerly known as Westgarth Street Station), and Dennis Station.

A tram runs along High Street (route 86) and along St Georges Road (route 112). Northcote is also served by bus routes along Separation Street, Westgarth Street, and Victoria Road.

Northcote Today


Westgarth (south of Northcote) is populated with cafes, bars, small fashion boutiques, and restaurants. High Street north of Ruckers Hill is a mix of furniture outlets, bars and art galleries.

Northcote Plaza Shopping Centre has shops, cafes and food outlets like Coles.
