Each suburb has its own distinctive flavour, with different businesses, dwellings and groups of people living and working there. From leafy Parkville, home to the University of Melbourne and a range of medical, research and institutional facilities, to the new waterside developments of Docklands; from the bustling restaurants of Carlton's Italian precinct to the high end fashion, cuisine and flair of Southbank's promenade and Crown Casino, Melbourne's suburbs are rich and diverse.
