Southbank is home to glitz and non-stop action, set on the banks of the Yarra River and right next door to Melbourne’s CBD. The glamorous Crown Casino, luxurious hotels, designer shopping and stylish restaurants couldn’t be further from the suburb’s humble beginnings as a cluster of simple wharves and warehouses.
Southbank Promenade is home to the city’s most in-demand bars and restaurants, lively street performers and a Sunday market. Here, you’ll also discover Australia’s tallest building, the Eureka Tower, the headquarters of major local and international businesses, the Royal Botanic Gardens, and cultural landmarks like the Arts Centre, National Gallery of Victoria, and Melbourne Recital Centre.
High-rise apartment living is the order of the day, with young professionals, students and downsizers attracted to Southbank’s state-of-the art residential developments. For those who work, study or play in the CBD, this is a location that serves up incredible style and convenience against spectacular river and skyline views.
