North Melbourne, Victoria 

 

North Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria’s northernmost region, the Latrobe Valley. The city has a population of about 30,000 people and is known as one of the region’s major centers for manufacturing, printing, and textiles. North Melbourne is also home to some of Melbourne’s best tourist attractions, such as the Yarra Bend Park, the Flagstaff Gardens, and Queen Victoria Market.

One of Australia’s fastest-growing cities is located in Victoria’s middle district. It borders Prospect to the north, Reservoir to the east, Carlton to the south, and Epping to the west. The area was originally settled in 1840, with the first newspaper being printed there in 1853. Today, the area boasts a thriving retail district, as well as several parks, golf courses, and recreational facilities.

“We want to take our AFL team to the next level and we believe we have the right people standing in front of us to do so,” North Melbourne CEO Carl Dilena said. “We’re not trying to disrupt or replace anyone, we’re building a new team and a new culture.”

For the most ardent North Melbourne supporters, the AFL Grand Final is the pinnacle of the club’s AFL journey. It is a time to reflect on the past 12 months of success, yet also an opportunity to look forward to the lack of success to come.

The Club Crest of North Melbourne is the only one of its kind in the world. The Crest is a unique and iconic structure that sits proudly above the North Melbourne Oval. It was built in 1908 by the North Melbourne Football Club to celebrate 100 years of football in the Victorian Football League. The bust was sculpted by renowned artist Charles Bennett, who was also responsible for the bust of the Melbourne Cricket Ground’s famous “Dean’s Head”. The Crest is made from a single block of granite, which is why it appears to be a single head. The club’s name is carved in the center of the Crest, and the words “North Melbourne Football Club” and date are etched around the outer

“The Kangaroos” are North Melbourne’s official mascots, and they are a great reason to watch the football competition in Australia. The North Melbourne Kangaroos is one of the oldest sporting clubs in Australia. The club has won 6 VFA/AFL premierships, the most of any Australian sporting club. The Club has won a total of 12 AFL Grand Finals, the most of any sporting club. In 1999, the Kangaroos Football Club was officially recognized by the Australian Government as the national football team of Australia. The name ‘Kangaroos’ was a nickname that some of the club’s players had applied when they were younger. The original players were about 5 feet (1.5 m) tall.

We have to see North Melbourne because of its history, because of its great food, and because we want to go there. So we go there.
