Abbotsford Convent

Abbotsford is Northside's eastern fringe. Beyond it lies Melbourne's badlands, a savage hellhole of large, spacious houses with clean indoor bathrooms; quiet, tree lined streets, and where the nearest bar is an agonising fifteen minutes away by tram.

The convent is popular with Melbourne white people because it includes a restaurant, bakery, gallery and a park. While this might describe almost every single neighbourhood in Melbourne, don't be fooled. Remember that white Melburnians have the power to transform an experience shared by millions into something qualitatively different whenever they do it. The best part is when they get to tell their friends where Abbotsford is.
