Located just 7 km from the city, High Street Northcote is one of Melbourne's dynamic and creative locations, with a history spanning 150 years. Today High Street is home to one of Melbourne's most interesting and eclectic mix of retailers, bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants.

High Street Northcote is an incubator for some of Melbourne's most innovative independent designers. The street houses an impressive array of vintage and retro fashion and furniture retailers alongside contemporary fashion and design boutiques. High Street Northcote's range of contemporary and epoch fashion, jewellery, gifts and home wares make it the ideal place to find something a little bit different and a whole lot special.

Melbournians love their food, wine and coffee and High Street has some of the best on offer, from fine dining to quality take-away, the variety of quirky cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars, make High Street a foodie's haven. When dining on High Street you can enjoy a unique cross-section of contemporary dining, multicultural food, cheap eats or a traditional pub meal.

This is our local shopping centre and it is good to see that despite the proximity of the Plaza, the strip shops have been retained and the street is still buzzing with shoppers. The retailers are busy at the moment preparing for Valentines Day. The red hearts are everywhere, complemented by the obligatory stuffed toys, and of course the flowers...

This post is part of the Our World Tuesday meme,
and also part of the Ruby Tuesday meme.
