This walk of local fun and cool hangouts was created by teenagers for teenagers through a fun consultative process
This walk is for any teenager that wants to get out and experience a range of places from parks, pools, markets, cheap eats and funky streets. While this walk may look really long, we made use of the tram lines to get us the longer distances. There is still plenty of walking to do, don't worry! The very best time to go on this walk is on Saturday late morning/early afternoon as all the markets will be open.
We love the Preston Market because it is really muilti-cultural. There is a great lolly store that sells American lollies. It is really cheap place where you can chill out.
One of our friend's dad found this bakery in the Age, and it was voted the best pork rolls in Melbourne. We went there to try something new and they was amazing! They are only $3.50 a roll.
This stretch of High St (between Murray Rd and Gower St) is really cool. They have all these bargain stores. The vibes you get there are really chill.
We took the 86 tram to get to Arthurton Road, the trams go down High Street really often so it is easy to just jump on a tram.
Make sure you get off at this tram stop so you can walk down to CERES!
CERES has a really natural feeling. Anyone can just hang out there. The food is great and the hot chocolates are pretty good, organic too! The markets on Saturdays are really fun too.
Merri Park is fun and right next to Northcote High. There is a cool playground in the park that not bad for teens to hang out on after school hours.
Juline's makes the best chips ever, so addictive! It is like our little community milk bar.
There is a tram stop right in front of Juline's Noodle Shop - so really easy to jump on that to take you down to Fitzroy.
Just down the road from this marker towards Smith Street is our favourite pool. It costs only $2.10 to get in. So cheap and there are never lots of people. They have night sessions too!
We wish that more streets were like Brunswick St. It's got cool clothes shops, 2nd-hand shop called "Hunter Gatherer\". Heaps of parks nearby too and cheap food!
We finished up our walk at San Churros to reward ourselves. It's one of our favourite places to get something yum to eat.
