Preston is a vibrant and multi-cultural suburb located 9 kilometres north of the city.
Families love the life here since Preston is very well-established and has plenty of schools and lots of shopping places. Preston is home to a wide range of schools including public primary schools, specialist schools and TAFE colleges. Young independent people also favour Preston for its proximity to the city as well as other hip spots like Northcote. Both young and old locals love the fact that Preston is well serviced by an extensive range of public transport routes. To move around, residents always have the options of train, tram and bus services.
The bustling Preston Market has been serving the local for 46 years as a fresh produce hub. Now the market remains as one of Melbourne's traditional markets. Located right next to Preston Railway Station, the market has a thriving bustling atmosphere and features its unique mix of multi-cultural traders and performers. Under the large fresh produce hall, shoppers are surrounded by fresh produce and small goods which pretty much covers everything you need for the day-to-day life.
