About the property


Gem Apartments are a select group of properties targeted at guests looking for longer stays (over four nights). All of our apartments offer fantastic views, central location, excellent facilities and quality furnishings. Our kitchens are equipped with all the extra items useful for guests on a longer stay and wanting to cook.


We have two of these apartments available. If the calender is blocked, the other apartment may be available. Please check the Gem Apartments website.

We also have a luxury 3 bed / 3 bath apartment in Freshwater with 2 carparks and access to the Skyline Club.

Gem Apartments has a number of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments throughout Southbank. Please check our website for further details.

MINIMUM STAY FOUR NIGHTS: Due to the volume of requests, we are no longer answering enquiries for one or two night stays.


Main bedroom has 1 Queen bed, amazing views, balcony ensuite (shower / toilet / basin/separate bath) and second television with additional foxtel subscription.

Second bedroom has 1 Split Queen (can zip into 1 Queen or unzip into 2 Singles) and amazing views.

The second bathroom is located near Bedroom 2 and has a shower, toilet, basin and eurolaundry with washing machine and dryer.


This is a residential size kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook dinner for six people, including full size fridge, oven, stove top and microwave.


Freshwater Place is one of Melbournes most exclusive buildings with six star facilities and unbeatable location right on the Yarra River next to Crown Casino. This apartment has access to the amazing facilities on the tenth floor.

10th floor - 25 meter pool, 1/2 acre garden area with multiple BBQ areas available overlooking the skyline. Gym, spa, steam room and sauna.


These apartments on the 34th and 35th floors boast spectacular views across Federation Square, the MCG, Melbourne City and the Yarra River. Crown Casino and its many restaurants and entertainment options is right next door, and the CBD is a 40 metre walk across the river via footbridge.

Despite being in the middle of the city, the Freshwater Place complex includes a small but well stocked supermarket plus liquor, doctors clinic, and lots of small cafes to grab a quick coffee.

The apartment has a minimum stay of 4 nights and 7 nights for some peak season.



We understand that it is important to have fast, unlimited wifi broadband available, which is accessible to multiple devices. We provide this amenity: wifi internet just like you have at home, for no additional cost.

This apartment comes with secure onsite parking for 1 car.


We provide a 24 hour per day, 7 day per week meet and greet service for our guests at Freshwater Place. Gem Apartments works out of an office nearby and is available each day to assist our guests, and via an emergency after hours number when the office is closed.

We provide a traditional, personal holiday home experience, backed up with full time staff to take care of any issues which may arise.

So close to everything in Melbourne with great views, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two friends stayed here in the Gem Apartments for a great mini-break holiday in Melbourne. It is very centrally located - from here we could walk, tram, taxi or train it to just about anywhere we wanted to go. For example, the CBD is only 5-10mins walk across the footbridge and under the railway tunnel. There is a supermarket directly downstairs as part of the apartment complex, a great lap pool (which we used every day), places to buy a quick (and good) coffee, a well equipped kitchen which we mainly used for preparing breakfasts but you could easily cook a meal. And the views are spectacular! We particularly enjoyed watching the day fade and the lights come up over the river and the CBD. The apartment has lots of room, good bathrooms and very comfy beds. Kellie, the manager, was terrific to deal with - answered all our emails promptly and was most helpful.

Four of us came to Melbourne for tennis and stayed here. Great views and accommodation. Kellie from Gem Apartments looked after us very well. Would recommend highly.
