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.

The beds were comfortable and linen and towels clean and fresh. The kitchen was well stocked in terms of kettle, toaster, pots, pans, cutlery, plates etc. and there was washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and washing power available There was tea, coffee, sugar, salt and pepper etc. available. The kitchen could benefit from a coffee plunger - a necessity in my view. The bathrooms had some good quality shower gel, shampoo and conditioner available. There is only really one downside to the apartment - the main bedroom suffers from getting warm and stuffy in warm weather, which the air conditioning in the main living area is unable to address - our host did provide us with a room fan, which still didn't really cool the bedroom. The view from the apartment over the Etihad Stadium and docklands provided a great view of the New Year fireworks. The location is excellent for a stay in the city. There is a large Coles opposite so getting groceries is easy. It is also easy to get access to the freeway system for travel in and out of Melbourne. A car parking space is available, which we used, and is paid for separately - although I would have expected the car space to be part of the accommodation rate. We had an enjoyable stay. I would recommend it for short-stays for two couples, although the second bedroom can accommodate more with a useful trundle bed and second bunk.
