Fabulous and convenient access to Water Taxis, which can take you, up the Maribyrnong River to Flemington Racecourse or go up river to Road Laver Arena, MCG for concert events and AFL football and Melbourne Park for the sensational Australian Open Tennis. It’s an awesome way to experience Melbourne’s skyline and sparkling best from the water.
We are just a stone’s throw from the Melbourne CBD, immediately surrounding us is Docklands, home to iconic public artworks and installations – 60 in total with an especially created walking tour available. This unique area of Docklands has been voted in the national top 20 hotspots in Australia coming in 6th nationally. The groins at Victoria Harbour is a great place to visit to start your day with a coffee & freshly baked pastries & breads from The Mill before embarking on a 45-minute ferry ride to Portarlington on the Bellarine Peninsula, with the Port Phillip Ferries. It is one of Melbourne’s unique experiences and it’s an easy walk from our front door.
Being on the river we have an abundance of water & boating hire activities to enjoy including Melbourne Boat Hire, Venetian Gondola on the Yarra, Melbourne River Cruises, Williamstown Ferry departing from Southbank & just a short 8 mins up the river. Hire your own “On a Boat” Dutch Sloop for up to 9 people and self-cater your way along the Yarra. Moonlight kayaking is a magical Melbourne experience paddling through Melbourne’s scenic waterways whilst the light changes to dusk.
If you prefer walking then it’s only a 12-minute walk into the CBD for fabulous shopping, Federation Square, eating & art precincts. With free transport options on our doorstep in Flinders Street to get you there. Getting around Melbourne CBD is also a hoot when you hire a Green Cab, a cab service on a bike with carriage, great fun with music for up to 3 people. You can pick one of these up from DFO, Southern Cross Station and Southbank…all on our doorstep.
Eating out on the Yarra is one of Melbourne’s truly wonderful experiences with over 30 premium restaurants and cafes right on the water’s edge with a variety of dining experiences and choices. Watching the sun set over the Docklands Marina is magical. Happy Hour is a delight with no shortage of venues participating, attracting many to this vibrant and ever-changing area.
Our enviable position has immediate access to Melbourne’s freeways with the Bolte Bridge and Westgate Freeway entrances less than 5 minutes drive which means easy travelling to Tullamarine or Avalon airport or through the Burnley and Domain tunnels to go further afield.
Waterfront Melbourne Apartments are in an excellent position to watch the NYE fireworks on the Melbourne city skyline. In summer the South Wharf pop up outdoor cinema is a twilight delight from 2nd January through to end of March 2019, located across the Seafarers Bridge at The Common Man, a leisurely 10-minute stroll away.
