Docklands isn't as much of a suburb of Melbourne as it a part of the city itself. Once an industrial shipping area - hence the name Docklands - the area went under an intense urban renewal program and emerged a cultural hotspot. Today the suburb is known for its shopping, sports, and residential areas.

Docklands is one of the most convenient suburbs in the Melbourne area. Travellers can walk into the city or hop aboard the free City Circle tram, designed especially for tourists. River cruise boats service the region and the Southern Cross station is also within walking distance. Southern Cross station will certainly come in handy if you're attending the Melbourne Cup, as there are regular direct train services to the track! Perfect for the racing enthusiast!

Docklands Accommodation

Since Docklands was only recently turned into a residential area, you'll find the lodging to be more contemporary than most other Melbourne accommodation. Furnishings are sleek and current with all the modern amenities. Nearly all Docklands holiday rentals are apartments, but many have several bedrooms and can sleep quite a few. Waterfront views are also popular among Docklands rentals.

What To Do In Docklands

If you're a sports fan, you've come to the right place. The famous Docklands Stadium is at the heart of Australian rules football. Take a look at the stadium schedule and see what's playing while you're in town.

Waterfront City is another fun area to visit in Docklands. Families will love the carnival rides and shows at Wonderland Fun Park. To cool off on a hot day, visit the Medibank Icehouse for a day of ice skating or a night of "ice dancing," when the DJs come in on Friday and Saturday nights. 

Visit NewQuay For A Night Of Shopping, Dining, And Entertainment

NewQuay, a waterfront shopping and dining centre, is a major cultural hub in the Docklands. You'll find an eclectic blend of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, and art all along the water. Travellers are free to walk along the boardwalk, grab a latte, or splurge on some authentic gelato. With over 20 bars and restaurants, you're sure to find what you're craving on any given night. New special events or festivals are always coming to NewQuay, so be sure to check the schedule to find out what's going on while you're in town. 

Not sure where to go? The best restaurant at New Quay - and one of the best restaurants in Melbourne - is Mecca Bah, a Middle-Eastern restaurant overlooking the Yarra River. Try the mezze plates if it's your first time at Mecca Bah. Snack on small plates like grilled Tunisian Merguez sausages with minted yogurt, falafels, or lamb kofte. The tagine here is also to-die-for. 

Within walking distance to the city centre and a downtown waterfront vibe that's all its own - Docklands might just be the most exciting neighbourhood in Melbourne.

Good location except for the shower the temperature from warm turned to hot suddenly. Need to keep

5 of 5
Good location except for the shower the temperature from warm turned to hot suddenly. Need to keep adjusting the temperature. ( very difficult to get the right temperature) It will be good if the check in time can move forward a little instead of at 4.00pm especially reaching Melbourne in the early morning and also we need to deposit our luggage and wash up before the start of our other activities. I will definitely recommend friends to put up at Daniel's place. If I do have the chance to visit Melbourne, I will book the same place again.
