Richmond is a suburb of Melbourne, located a quick three kilometers from the central business district. While it is known for its close proximity to Melbourne, Richmond also has some of its own attractions including a series of outlet stores on Bridge Road and a popular dining district called Little Saigon. If you’re looking for affordable Melbourne accommodation, look beyond the city to get value in the suburbs.

Why Richmond?

Some travelers want to be close to the action of Melbourne, but have somewhere quiet to retreat to. Richmond is known for its architectural character, particularly Victorian homes and more recently, converted warehouse residences. Just a few miles from Melbourne are these stylish, affordable holiday rentals. Many of them also boast a location close to the trendy shops and cafés along Bridge Road. Families will find great value on multi-bedroom rentals in the area in comparison to Melbourne.

What to See and Do?

Visitors can choose between things to see and do in Richmond or in the nearby city centre. On a relaxed day, stroll through the shops on Bridge Road or play a round of golf at the nearby Burnley Golf Course. For some sunbathing and swimming, the closest beach is Middle Park Beach. There are also several parks nearby including the Royal Botanic Gardens and Fawkner Park.

Richmond has its own character and is a great place to simply kick back and explore. Swan Street is known for a large number of bars and restaurants. There are also many historic buildings in this area, including the Richmond Town Hall. Many hotels along this strip, including the Swan, are known for their nightly live music performances.

Visitors can spend evenings in Melbourne, or experience the life of a local in Richmond. The Victoria Gardens Shopping Centre is a nice, modern facility for a little retail therapy. Several local parks are perfect for a picnic including Citizens Park and Barkly Gardens.

Top Attractions

There are plenty of reasons to stay in Richmond, but nearby Melbourne also has a long list of appealing attractions. No trip would be complete without spending some time in Melbourne, particularly to see certain sights such as the popular Federation Square, Queen Victoria Market, or the Melbourne Aquarium.

Depending on your interests, there are several more Melbourne attractions to explore. Kids might want to visit the Melbourne Zoo while adults will be drawn to the Crown Casino. Art enthusiasts won’t want to miss the National Gallery of Victoria while the Melbourne Observation Deck offers spectacular views.

Why Rentals?

Richmond accommodation has a reputation for being upscale, comfortable, and full of character. Many rentals have plush finishes including luxurious bedding, modern bathrooms, and elegant kitchens. These types of amenities often come at a much higher price in hotels, and for much less space.

These holiday rentals provide close proximity to a local neighborhood in addition to easy transportation into the central business district. For a relaxed, comfortable stay in Melbourne area, check out Richmond holiday rentals.
