Famed for The Boulevard’s elaborate Christmas lights display, Ivanhoe has a certain enchantment to it; where lush, rolling hills make up an exciting realm that is only 10 kilometres northeast of the CBD. It is this innate charm and character that makes this family-friendly domain such a sought after location to call home. Ivanhoe hosts a variety of public spaces to find retreat, encouraging a healthy lifestyle that is connected with nature. One of the city’s most superb conservation sites, the Darebin Parklands, is a vast oasis in the north.
Tracks that meander through the natural reserve, made for activities of all intensities, allow visitors to enjoy the rich vegetation, while the Darebin Creek itself sets a calming soundtrack to this peaceful suburban retreat. The heart of the suburb is Upper Heidelberg Road, a mecca for all things shopping, dining and services. Airlie has direct access to all of these drawcards, located at the base of the Ivanhoe Village.
