High Street Northcote is one of Melbourne's oldest shopping streets starting at the top with Ruckers Hill down to Northcote Shopping Plaza. There is a variety of shops, bars, restaurants and services, making for an all-inclusive shopping experience.

The City of Darebin is north-east of Melbourne's CBD. Bordered by the Darebin and Merri creeks to the east and west, this municipality is genuinely "the land between two creeks". As Darebin’s designated arts precinct, High St, Northcote is one of Melbourne’s most unique and creative locations. With a growing number of independent designer clothing and specialty stores for grownups and babies alike, cool retro furniture and clothing stores as well as a host of hair and beauty retreats, the eclectic mix of businesses is a reflection of a diverse and vibrant community.

As we have been having some very warm and mainly sunny autumnal weather lately, it has been perfect for walks, not only in the parks and gardens of the neighbourhood, but also the shopping streets! As you can see, lots of blue skies and sun...

This post is part of the Monday Murals meme,
and also part of the Mandarin Orange Monday meme,
and also part of the Blue Monday meme.


  1. Thanks for another little tour of this great place.

  2. Hi Nick,

    Oh, you have so many blues, but that sky . . . OH MY! It's so blue-tiful! Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  3. I didn't realize "Aldi" was so far reaching (in your 4th image). We have one here in our own little community. :D
    Very creative, bright mural!

  4. Picturesque older shops, I bet they are fun. The mural is decorative, with it's mystical beings.

  5. You found a blue filled day! The sky is gorgeous too. Have a wonderful week.

  6. I especially love the mural. Just a couple of days ago I attended an exhibition of Vancouver's street art. So much talent and I'm happy to see it exposed. As for those skies, no wonder Sally was smiling :)

  7. Pretty amazing murals you have there! And I love the orange bike too - wish I could manage to ride one again :(
    A great series, thanks for sharing on Mandarin Orange Monday Nick (and thanks for introducing me to Monday Murals... I came across a couple of interesting ones in the country last I will link up there soon).

  8. Northcote is not a part of Melbourne I normally drive through en route to somewhere else. But if High St Northcote is one of Melbourne’s most unique and creative locations, then I better make a special trip. Sunday brunch anyone?
