Eastern side of Melbourne city, between Balwyn, Camberwell and Surrey Hills.Where abouts is this suburb?
There is no answer to Monomeath Avenue, Canterbury 3126. Get me in there!!!Canterbury's Monomeath Ave is Melbourne answer to Jutland Parade in Perth
Maling Rd Canterbury.
Maling Rd is a picturesque shopping strip in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Canterbury. The road has managed to retain some of the character of an early-mid 20th century shopping district, with separate green grocers, butchers and other produce shops. Although extensively gentrified it is still a relaxing and pleasant place to spend an autumn afternoon.
Also, for those of you who follow pop music (and the soap opera Neighbours) this is the area where Kylie and Danni Minogue grew up.
I visited a couple of weeks ago with my trusty camera. After getting of the train at the convenient Canterbury station - this is what I saw:
Murals line the laneway next to the elevated train tracks.
Donnini's do very good freshly made pasta. They have stores all throughout Melbourne.
I'm in two minds about retaining the powerlines as is, or burying them. They are certainly in character with the era of Maling Rd, but still ugly none-the-less.
Bennet's - from when Canterbury was still a rural (frontier) village.
Gotta love those pressed tin celings.
The old post office.
The amazing old hotel.
I then went for a little stroll up Canterbury Rd for a gander at the local area.
Interesting Masonic Hall.
The beautiful little Cantebury Park.
And then back to the station for the train home.
