The ‘Urbis Hip List’ suburbs attract a young demographic who have progressive attitudes, and can often be trend-setters.
From the latest Census data, we’ve identified 21 suburbs, including Collingwood, Fitzroy, and pocket-sized Travancore in Melbourne. In Sydney, nine suburbs made the list dominated by inner western suburbs such as Camperdown and little known Forest Lodge, with harbourside Potts Point and Elizabeth Bay also included. Highgate and Northbridge in Perth made the list along with Fortitude Valley in Brisbane.
We were also surprised to see Braddon and Canberra City on the list, but poor Adelaide failed to register any hip suburbs at all.
