Beautiful Kensington

Tucked between North Melbourne and Flemington, Kensington is only four kilometres from the Melbourne CBD. The local area has humming and lively café culture that people try to replicate across the city.

Leafy green streets and heritage charm make Kensington a unique place to work and play. Its seclusion has tricked most people into overlooking the neighbourhood: It has the genuine village-like character savoured by Melbournians.

The Macaulay Street Village is located a few metres away from Younghusband, with cafes, restaurants, bars. Kensington Train Station is nearby, for quick access to Southern Cross Station and the CBD. Kensington is perfectly placed: 

  • 4kms from the CBD

  • 5 – 10 minutes from Macaulay and Kensington Stations, and bus routes

  • 800 metres from the site of the proposed new Arden underground metro station

  • 20 minutes from Melbourne Airport

Kensington, Victoria, 3031


The Arden Macaulay Renewal Plan

Younghusband sits within the area of City of Melbourne’s Arden Macaulay Renewal Plan.

Arden Central, less than 500 meters away, will be the heart of this planned wide-ranging, long term transformation. The plan includes major transportation upgrades, new parklands and a new civic centre.

Melbourne’s central city will extend northwest, according to planners, bringing an estimated 14,000 jobs, 4,000 residents and 12,000 students.
