The Coburg Market houses a variety of traders. There are also the usual supermarkets.Chambers street is also a designated bike path which allows you to access the extensive bike tracks that criss-cross Melbourne. The neighbors are friendly, culturally diverse, not intrusive but still keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary. The traffic is generally light & cars are mostly parked off street. The street scape generally consists of period homes (Victorian & postwar probably 60-70%). Houses are tidy and generally well maintained, each having a nature strip & established, mostly native trees. Curbs are blue stone edged. There are roundabouts at each intersections and the southern end doglegs into a narrow road that takes you across Sydney Road and access to the eastern suburbs.
