Camberwell Suburb Melbourne

A popular part of this suburb is the Burke Road shopping strip. This area stretches 600 meters from the Camberwell junction going north.

Public transportation is available in the area. Three tram routes (70, 72, 75) converge here and a railway station along the shopping strip is also in place. The railway service covers the areas of Belgrave, Lilydale and Alamein. Buses also pass through Camberwell.

The suburb was named by an early settler who was then reminded of London’s Camberwell district.

Originally an agricultural land, the suburb today features mostly commercial areas particularly near the Burke Road precinct. Neighboring areas include East Camberwell, Hartwell, Riversdale and Willison. Prospect Hill is the oldest part of Camberwell.

Residential properties here are a mix of the traditional and modern. Many houses in the suburb are of Victorian and Edwardian types. Home prices in the city of Boroondara are above the metropolitan median. Housing in the Prospect Hill, however, are higher than the median.

Camberwell is ideal for families in the higher income level owing to the high cost of living in the suburb. The above average cost of living in the area is justified by the presence of complete amenities, restaurants, transportation, parks and other recreation facilities, high performing schools, shopping district, safe streets and higher resell value.
