Clifton Hill is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 4 km north-east of Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Yarra. At the 2011 Census, Clifton Hill had a population of 5,790.Described in the 1880s as the "Toorak of Collingwood", Clifton Hill fell out of favour, along with much of inner Melbourne by the mid 20th century. Later becoming a centre of Melbourne's bohemianism, the suburb has undergone rapid gentrification in recent years, and is now considered one of Melbourne's most liveable suburbs.
The Queens Parade shopping strip has a great village atmosphere and is one of Melbourne’s well kept secrets. From a range of speciality shops including jewellers, boutique clothes & shoe shops, antiques plus plenty of shops for everyday needs, there is something for everyone there. One can take a stroll along the wide footpaths and tree lined streets, stop for a coffee and sit outside of one of the many cafés and just enjoy the atmosphere.
