Hello! Welcome to The New North, a blog dedicated to discovering what’s new in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. My name is Andrea and I started this blog as a way to discover and document the things I could do with my young family around our area.

I’m originally from Adelaide and I moved to Melbourne 14 years ago, however I have never lived in the north until I started a family. When I moved here I couldn’t find any information or websites that were specific to the area and young families… so here I am! I’m hoping to include all sorts of information that will be handy for young families who are new to this side of town or even if you have lived here for a while. There is always something new popping up in the north!

Thanks for joining me in my discoveries!
