As the state’s commercial and artistic heart, Melbourne’s CBD is a heady mix of art, food, culture, shopping and sport.

Melbourne's world famous laneways are dotted with stylish cafes, bars and nightlife, the street art rivals that of New York or Berlin, and as a UNESCO City of Literature there are more bookshops and literary events here than in any other Australian city. The iconic MCG is within walking distance and parks, shops and entertainment are all close at hand.

In Melbourne, slick new developments sit comfortably alongside heritage-listed architecture. The vibrant atmosphere, and the appeal of having work, study and leisure quite literally on the doorstep lure both students and professionals of all ages. For those who thrive in the thick of the action, this is most definitely the place to be.
