A Melbourne village in a city-defining precinct

Positioned just 3.5km from Melbourne’s CBD, Younghusband can be found at the apex of some of the city’s best transport infrastructure and close to the thriving Kensington Village.

Younghusband is the only city fringe location so seamlessly connected to all corners of Melbourne.

You’ll find three, soon to be four, railway stations – Kensington, Macaulay, South Kensington and, in the future, Arden – all just a short stroll away. Melbourne Airport is a quick 20-minute drive away, while CityLink effortlessly transports commuters north, south and west.

Future connectivity

The new Arden Station, located less than 1km from Younghusband, will give employees and visitors direct access to the train network with quicker access to the CBD and connectivity to Melbourne’s South East without additional connections. Arden Station will also service the Melbourne Airport Rail line, slated for completion in 2029.
