15 Reasons You Should Visit Brunswick, Melbourne

15 Reasons You Should Visit Brunswick, Melbourne

After giving Melbourne’s northside suburb of Brunswick a bad rap last week I figured it only fair I redress the balance and extoll some of its cultural virtues. From bloomin’ good brunches to Beyonce dance classes, cheap Middle Eastern eats and vintage fashion bargains – these are my top things to do in Brunswick if you ever find yourself visiting this eclectic suburb of Melbourne.

  1. To enjoy a continental feed for under a fiver at Lebanese bakery, deli and grocery store in one, A1 Bakery.
  2. To tuck into very good falalfel at, erm, Very Good Falafel.
  3. For even more Turkish treats at legendary kebab palace, Alasya.
  4. To get some custom fit jeans for under $50. (I‘m serious!)

  7. For trawl the op shops and second hand clothes stores for vintage bargains.
  8. To see if you can haul your ass up the rock climbing walls at Brunswick Northside Boulders and North Walls.
  9. Gather all you girlfriends (or your granny) for an indulgent high tea experience at Mary Eats Cake.
