Carlton is an historic inner suburb in Melbourne, Australia. It is renowned for Lygon Street, an Italian restaurant district.

Carlton has a lot of historic houses. Stringent heritage controls have kept large swathes of the suburb untouched. While expansive (and expensive) renovations have been going on out the back for years, you'd never know it from Carlton's quaint Victorian-era streets.

Carlton is also a popular student area because of its proximity to both the University of Melbourne and RMIT.
