SOUTH MELBOURNE

GET TO KNOW
THE AREA

This lively inner-city neighbourhood is all about café culture and gourmet grazing. Home to heritage architecture, leafy green streets and one of the city’s most treasured markets, South Melbourne has built a name for itself as a hub for all things delicious and sold by the dozen.

Historic charm in a well-connected setting, South Melbourne is the epitome of inner-city ease. With the CBD within walking distance and the beach just a quick tram ride away, it’s safe to say this ever-popular suburb has the convenience factor down pat. But that’s not all it has going for it.

Indeed, you can’t discuss this treasured locale without mentioning the South Melbourne Market. A mecca for gourmands across the city, it’s home to a plethora of exquisite produce. Whether it’s fine cheese or exotic fruits and veggies (as well as the common or garden varieties), steaming paella by the plateful or Melbourne’s most famous dim sims – you dream it, they’ve got it. But foodies needn’t stop there. South Melbourne also happens to be home to some of the city’s most-loved cafés. And in a city that really loves its cafés, that’s saying something.
