Northcote is the land of soy lattes, handicrafts and same-sex couples. Situated at the top of Rucker's Hill, parts of Northcote have commanding views of the Melbourne CBD. Traditionally a working-class neighborhood, the suburb has experienced a significant gentrification over the past few decades.

Northcote's main artery, High Street is now full of trendy cafes and hand-made home-wares, catering to the suburb's population of cashed up hippies.

Architecturally, Northcote has a number of innovative renovations at the rear of Edwardian homes.
