Discover Kensington

Kensington is an area with distinct character, with a quirky mix of buildings, pretty elm lined streets and a village style shopping strip it has an old world meets new world feel. The area is known for the diversity of its architecture, including Victorian terraces, cottages, warehouse apartments and new structures.

Located only 4km north – west from Melbourne’s CBD the area features vibrant cafes, eclectic gift stores, a multitude of professional services, small grocers, and a bustling food scene. The traders of Kensington take great pride in their products, from the beautiful fresh produce, scent of home-made soup bubbling away, to the meticulously styled display windows, visiting Kensington is a delight for the senses.
