This contemporary urban development is a seamless extension to the city that effectively doubles the footprint of the CBD. The historical heart of Melbourne’s shipping industry, the docklands were left dormant for decades until the late 90s when this vast area just 2 kilometres from the centre of the city was transformed.
Docklands is defined by the vast terminal of Southern Cross station to the east, South Wharf and the Yarra River to its south and west, and with Newquay and Footscray Road forming its northern edge. It has a population of around 11,000 people and is known for its landmark high-rise apartment blocks, spacious public plazas and pathways adorned with public art, Marvel Stadium and the enormous Melbourne Star Observation Wheel; now a fixture in the city’s skyline.
Many of Australia’s big companies have their head offices at Docklands, on the waterfront, and it’s well-serviced by public transport. Docklands offers contemporary living, world class facilities and fantastic waterfront views in an easy to reach inner city location.
