Port Melbourne is a suburb of Melbourne, located a short five kilometers from the central business district. This area, southwest of Melbourne, was once an industrial port but has undergone rejuvenation in recent years. Today, this lovely suburb is home to beaches, parklands, and restaurants and cafes along Bay Street. Port Melbourne serves as a perfect homebase for exploring the city of Melbourne.

Why Port Melbourne?

A visit to Melbourne can include both the sights of the city and the pleasures of the beaches. Choose Port Melbourne holiday rentals and you will be within walking distance of beaches and cafes and also close to transportation into the center of Melbourne. Rentals are full of amenities including outdoor terraces with a view, al fresco dining areas, and stocked kitchens. Some rentals here are also pet-friendly if you want to bring your pooch on holiday with you.

What To See And Do?

One of the most popular things to do here is hit the beach. The closest beach is called Port Melbourne Beach. Bay Street is the neighborhood home of cafes, restaurants, and pubs and is a great place to explore for lunch, dinner, or nightlife. Those visitors wanting to play some golf can book a tee time at the nearby Albert Park Golf Course.

Another popular thing to do in Port Melbourne is to check out Circus Oz, the Australian contemporary circus with a base on the corner of Bay Street and Rouse Street. There are also several localities within Port Melbourne that are worth exploring including Beacon Cove and Fishermen’s Bend.

While Port Melbourne has its own attractions, many visitors also choose to head into Melbourne. It is easy to reach Melbourne with both an extensive bus network and also a connection on Melbourne tram route 109. In Melbourne, be sure to check out top attractions including Federation Square, Melbourne Zoo, and the National Gallery of Victoria.

Top Local Attractions

In addition to the big sights in Melbourne, there are many more things to see in the general area. One of the most popular is the Philip Island Nature Park. This spot is famous for little penguins that emerge from the sea, in addition to other types of interesting Australian wildlife. If you’re interested in animals, you might also want to check out the Melbourne Aquarium and the Healsville Sanctuary.

Port Melbourne accommodation is also a great launching point for nearby outdoor adventure. If you want to do some hiking, cycling, kayaking, and fishing, it will be easy to arrange tours from here. Hot air balloon rides are another popular attraction and a great way to see the city of Melbourne.

Why Rentals?

Travellers have a lot of choices for Melbourne accommodation. Holiday rentals offer the chance to surround yourself with locals going about their everyday business. You can save money by stocking your fridge from the farmers market. Rentals offer extra space and amenities than will be found in the center of Melbourne. For a relaxing holiday, get out of the city center and check out the beaches and cafes of Port Melbourne.

This small apartment in central Melbourne was fantastic. Location can't be beat as you are only 2 blocks from Melbourne Central and most of Melbourne's great laneways are all within a short walk from you. Bedrooms were very comfortable and the small kitchen and living room were great for me and my best friend traveling together. I only have 2 nitpicks with the unit that might hopefully be able to be addressed for future travelers. 1. Only having 1 key / fob: This was a bit of a hassle for me and my best friend as we were sometimes doing different things and we were having to constantly coordinate as you need the key and the fob in order to enter the building & apartment. 2. The shower: The water temperature in the shower would vary widely even when you were not adjusting the temp. Varying from scalding hot to cold......which just meant you were constantly having to toy with the temp. control to keep your shower comfortable. A minor annoyance, but worth mentioning. Overall, the stay was wonderful and recommend highly.

My first experience renting and I loved it! Rodger offers a fabulous location for walking to restaurants, sporting and cultural events, with a pub, cafe, grocery store and bottle shop nearby. The flat is as pictured, with modern decor, bright and clean, with huge windows and a lovely shade tree in front. I was sad to leave but will definitely return! Thanks!
