Sydney Road tram to Coburg. Great suburb. Great food. Great people. Great vibe. Great transport. Just great. Home to Pentridge Prison – Great Views and blue stone, yup it is great too.
If you take a look on google maps at Coburg you will notice a few things. It is almost a square apart from the Eastern side suburb boundary following the line for the most part of the Merri Creek Trail.
Pretty much through the dead set center runs Sydney Road which has every shop, store, cafe you can imagine to want. If you need it you will be able to find it on Sydney Road. Three train stations, the first is Moreland Train Station at the Southern tip of Moreland Road, Coburg Train Station which services the main shopping precinct of Coburg with Coles, Woolworths, Coburg Library and then to the Northern boundary of Gaffney Street is Batman Train station.
John Fawkner Private Hospital, Coburg High School, 5 or 6 parks and reserves to rest and play and that has covered Coburg. We like Coburg, very much.
Now let’s not forget the elephant in Coburg’s room – Pentridge Prison. Once the one of Australia’s best known, loved and hated criminals. Pentridge’s blue stone walls and cell blocks have been turned into up market catering venues. Individual cells have been turned into wine cellars – well when you think about it how absolutely perfect – cold, good humidity, safe – ideal for a wine cellar!
Pentridge will evolve and in a decade from now be one of those unique residential developments and importantly kept and not bulldozed for it is our history after all.
