Manningham is a leafy suburban region in the north-east of Melbourne.

Get in and around

While the Manningham area infamously has no train or tram services, it is surprisingly well-connected to the city and surrounding regions by buses. Most of the buses which serve the main roads are the silver-coloured SmartBuses, which offer real-time arrival information, extended operating hours and on-board announcements of the next stop. They generally operate every 15 minutes or better on weekdays, and every 30 minutes on weekends and at night.

The major public transport hub in the area is the   Doncaster Park & Ride.

The 907 SmartBus runs from Lonsdale Street in the city to Doncaster, and is the fastest way to reach Westfield Doncaster and the Park & Ride. The 905 SmartBus services Bulleen and Templestowe from the city, while the 906 SmartBus is the quickest way to reach The Pines, East Doncaster and Warrandyte. The 903 SmartBus operates as a cross-town route, connecting the area to train stations at Heidelberg and Box Hill, while also stopping at the Heide Museum and Westfield Doncaster. Other useful SmartBuses in the area include the 901 (from Melbourne Airport), the 902 and the 908.
