MELBOURNE CBD

MELBOURNE CBD At A Glance

Buzzy and cosmopolitan Melbourne CBD offers a treasure trove of arts, dining and musical entertainment. Towering office buildings jostle for space with high-end designer boutiques, hidden laneway bars and the vibrant colours of Chinatown, while the city’s signature street art gives it a welcome edge. A magical melting pot, there’s a whole lot to do (and love) here.

Lifestyle

If there’s one thing Melbourne does well it’s coffee. And food. And … the list goes on. But back to the coffee. Melbournians wouldn’t dream of starting their day without one, and the CBD offers never-ending choices. From hole-in the-wall servers to expansive rooftop cafés – you dream it, they’ve got it. Another thing this eclectic neighbourhood excels at is bars. Whether they’re hidden behind nondescript doors or within a rabbit warren of laneways, Melbourne has a seriously impressive array of drinking dens on offer.

Then, there’s the culture. Art, theatre, fine dining. Whether it’s international masterpieces, Indigenous art, comedy shows, live music, or cuisine from every country you can think of, the CBD is where you’ll find them. Iconic venues, like The Forum and the National Gallery of Victoria, provide endless hours of entertainment.

And, if it all gets a bit too much, the breathtaking Botanical Gardens provide the perfect escape. The lush greenery and exotic flora and fauna are a world away from the never-ending buzz of the city.

Neighbours

Convenience is king. And nowhere is more convenient than Melbourne CBD. This bustling neighbourhood draws in cashed-up young professionals and international students who want the world at their fingertips. Needless to say, this kind of living doesn’t come cheap. The prestige and accessibility of the 3000 postcode also appeals to wealthy older couples and overseas buyers who race to snap up stylish residences in luxury developments and grand heritage buildings. The frenetic pace and lack of room to move mean that this is not the place for families. But for those who have the means, there’s just no beating the buzz of city life.

Area Features

ICONIC BUILDINGS

The Forum Theatre to the State Library of Victoria, the Melbourne Recital Centre to Flinders Street Station – the CBD is home to some of Melbourne’s most cherished and recognisable establishments.

A PLACE FOR LEARNING

With Melbourne University and RMIT calling its storied streets home, Melbourne CBD is a centre of higher education.

TO MARKET

One of Melbourne’s most cherished shopping spots is Queen Victoria Market. With bountiful fresh produce and gourmet delights on offer and night-time noodle markets in the summer, this place is a local institution.

Property

High density and convenience are the name of the game. Melbourne CBD is all about affluent apartment living. Flashy new complexes sit beside beautiful heritage buildings complete with surprisingly modern interiors and endlessly charming details. Take the time to look up next time you wander the city streets – the architectural details are sure to delight. Residents have their pick of compact and hassle-free apartments with first-rate amenities – from rooftop gardens to state-of-the art gyms. Of course, student accommodation is a far more Spartan affair. If it’s space you want (not to mention sprawling backyards), best look elsewhere. If you like the sound of having one of the world’s most dynamic cities right at your doorstop, the CBD is the place for you.
