The space

The room has a lovely feel, and an easy sense of quiet and calm. At one end is a small kitchenette, with microwave and electric frypan for light cooking, a sink and small fridge—with an ice tray!

Where you’ll be

Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Proximity to everything is the bonus of this location.
Port Melbourne is a historic suburb, the oldest in Melbourne, in fact, as it was the place of the earliest settler arrivals in 1835. It’s made of heritage homes, workers’ cottages and colonial civic buildings. As a beachside harbour, it has a great beach, fascinating pier and wharf activities, with ships coming and going, and many beachside attractions. The CBD is only minutes away by taxi, bus or tram, so we’re close to all the action, without the noise and disturbances. From this location, you are basically 10 minutes from everything: The CBD, the beach, the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, Port Melbourne Shopping centre, City Luxury shopping, Crown Casino, National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), Melbourne Theatre Company (MTC) and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA)… and even the Westgate Bridge, that will take you to the Great Ocean Road.
